Victorea Ryan Meadow

Biography

Born in Marquette, Michigan, in 1977 and raised in Northern Lower Michigan, I am a science-fiction and fantasy author now living in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after some brief stays in the Seattle, Washington area, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and a brief return to Cadillac, Michigan. I am a proud Pagan and priestess of Odin who respects people of all walks of life. My parents, whose divorced was finalized in 1989, raised me and my younger brother as geeks. We grew up watching Star Wars, Star Trek, the Transformers, the original Battlestar Galactica, and listening to lots of music with a female black cat named Nikki. I've been writing stories since I was nine years old. I currently have no pets.

My biggest inspiration for writing and wanting to become a published author is J.R.R. Tolkien with his epic fantasy, The Lord of the Rings, which was my solace and escape in high school. Favorite authors include Stephen King and Edgar Allen Poe.

I love history, mythology, music, movies, theater, role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons, comics, anime, manga, and traveling. I've been an avid reader for as long as I can remember.

I draw inspiration from the city of Philadelphia, Tolkien, David Farland, Tad Williams, Margaret Weis, the Greek and Norse histories, the music of the Bangles, and video games like Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Star Ocean. Though I walk this Earth as a mere mortal, I wander worlds filled with Gods,Elves, Dragons, and other amazing and terrifying wonders. I am a wrestler of dragons, a cuddler of demons, and a pimp of plushies.

My publications are Portal to Gaming, The King and Queen of Wands, and The Sons of Thor.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I decided to become an indie author to test the waters, to see if people enjoy my original material as much as they've enjoyed my fanfiction.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I'm still relatively new to Smashwords. I haven't utilized it as well as I should.
