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.

- Dreamer: A Novel of the Silent Empire
on April 20, 2011
First, I should admit that space operas are not my type of genre. The only reason I chose to read this book was because of its common theme -dreams and telepathy- with my own book. I was simply curious to compare so was pleasantly surprised to be hooked from the beginning and enjoying an alien world that I would generally not be interested in. Having said that, strange alien-creatures showed up little and most characters, their conflicts and settings are very Earth-like, so that probably helped. There were some typos but they didn't really bother me since they were few and sparse. The only negative remark I'd add is that it seemed to dragged a little toward the end. The first half had my full attention, however, I found myself skimming through some 'slow' sections in the second half eager to get to the resolution of the story. Overall: an engaging read.
