Born in Madrid, Spain, when Victoria was only six months old, her adventurous parents boarded a plane towards a faraway land in search of riches: Australia. Not speaking a word of English, with two little babies and just enough money to buy a used car, they set out to discover the Aussie outback. Truly innocent of the dangers they encountered at times, they crossed smothering-hot deserts, swam in deadly waters, befriended aborigine tribes, and mined for opals. Twelve years later and yearning for home, the family moved back to Spain… Victoria's love for travel and adventure had been cemented.
Thanks to an early successful business career, Victoria was able to afford countless trips around the world enriched with such experiences as scuba diving in the Red Sea, swimming with sharks and hugging barracudas in Cancun, or encountering endearing tribes in Asia.
During a tour of Thailand, she met a handsome American. She dropped everything, moved to the States, and now lives with her husband and two lovely children in Upstate New York.
Heir to the rich artistic streak that runs in her family (poets, photographers, painters, and designers), her fascination for cutting-edge science, her love of travel and her interest in human nature translate into an explosive cocktail in her debut thriller, Trapped in a Dream.
Victoria is currently at work on her next novel.

I got this for free during 'Read an Ebook Week' and do not think it is worth $7.99. I give the author props for a neat premise and a very gripping prologue, but as I got further into the book it started to drag a little. The dream sequences were not as interesting as the real-life mystery, and certain turns of phrase made it clear that English is not the author's native language. The book has promise, but it needs a bit of an edit, and at a commercial-level price like this one, readers deserve a book that's had one. I checked the author's website and she seems like a neat person, I will keep an eye out for her other stuff. But this book imho is not worth $7.99 in its current state.
