About Victoria Zigler

My name is Victoria, but most of my friends and family call me Tori. Feel free to do the same.

Born in the shadow of the black mountains in Wales, I now live by the sea in the south-east of England, with my husband, Kelly, a chinchilla named Mollie, a West Highland White Terrier named Lilie, a Cavapoo named Logan, and a Hermann's Tortoise named Artemis.

Having battled with glaucoma since birth, I now find myself completely blind. But I haven’t let that stop me from chasing the dream I've had since I was a young child: the dream of becoming a published author. Though it's been said many times by many authors, I've loved to read and write since I learned how, and always wanted to get my work published. Finally, in 2012, I made that dream come true by self-publishing the first of my books as an eBook via Smashwords. Several more titles have been published since, with paperbacks and audio books also being made available. So now I’m a published author of several poetry collections, as well as a long list of children’s stories.

I’m just as happy exercising the logical side of my brain as the creative side of it, so would describe myself as a combination of Hermione Granger and Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter books: Hermione’s thirst for knowledge and love of books, combined with Luna’s wandering mind and alternative way of looking at the world. A couple of people have agreed with that description of me, so I feel I'm justified in using it, and hope J K Rowling doesn't mind.

When I’m not lost in my own world, you’re most likely to find me either reading, writing, or attempting to keep my eMails from piling up. If I’m not doing any of those things, chances are I’m spending time with my hubby and PetKids. Either that, or taking some time to explore some of the many other interests that randomly capture my attention from time to time.

I love everything to do with animals and nature. Though I'd rather not get too close to spiders and other creepy crawly things. That love of animals was a huge factor in my choice to become first a vegetarian, and then a vegan, though there were other things that influenced my decision too.

old or young, if you believe in faeries, check this out. Faeries are cute, but faery dragons are even cuter! And the story was the right length for my tastes (I don't like short short stories).
Here's to more on faeries and faery dragons!

Starting with the book cover, it is eye catching and totally apt. The story is quite interesting. Pixies and goblins usually make for interesting characters and here we also have faerie dragons. The pixies, Jinx and Ayla, are siblings; Jinx is mischievous, Ayla is responsible and though often at the receiving end of her brother’s pranks, tries to keep him from getting into trouble. Draco and Caia, faerie dragons, beautifully described by Ms Zigler, who share Jinx’ love of mischief , befriend him, and all of them recklessly plunge into a dangerous adventure. Things turn very bad for them with nasty goblins and the author keeps up the suspense until Jinx and his friends are safe…..until the next adventure.
I liked the story and the very vivid descriptions. I will not be surprised to learn that Ms Zigler has tea with pixies and other such creatures on a regular basis because she seems to know them very well. Recommended.

I received a free copy of this book for review.

Jinx is a fairy trickster whose sister Ayla tries to keep out of trouble. They meet and befriend two faerie dragons, Caia and Draco. Jinx and the dragons decide to explore some forbidden caves, armed with a treasure map, but unknown to them, danger awaits.

I love the quality and colour of the cover which actually does reflect the quality and colour of the characters and the story.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Can I just say that I want my very own faerie dragon as a friend. I would carry him around in my purse and share all my cake and pastries with him! ;)

This story was magical, enchanting and very colorful! It's a tale of sibling pixies; mischievious Jinx and his sister Ayla who tries to keep Jinx out of trouble. The pixies meet and befriend two faerie dragons, Caia and Draco. Jinx decides to go on an adventure with the dragons even though Ayla tries to talk them all out of going. The adventure is filled with danger and it turns out that Ayla was right in being concerned!

I especially enjoyed all the colors the author wove into this story, from the bright colors of the dragons to the emerald and sapphire colors of the pixie's eyes. And the cover! I love how bright and cheery it is! You can't help but smile whenever you see it.

I recommend this wonderful chapter book to all children and wish I had one young enough that I could read this to. I would love to do all the voices for a little one. As it is, I plan on reading this with my 11 year old granddaughter this weekend for her birthday when she stays the night.

Nicely done, Ms. Victoria!
