V.West was born in Virginia, USA. She grew up in the rural south where highlights of her childhood included collecting fossil rocks, skipping rocks in the creek (not fossil rocks), eating as much penny candy as possible before dinner, hosting talent shows with her friends, roller skating in the church parking lot, playing hide-and-seek in the summer until after midnight, and not crossing the street (the only paved one in her town) without asking her parents for permission first. She went to school in the northeast where she dropped her southern drawl, but it comes back each time she crosses the Mason-Dixon line. She has held a wide variety of jobs and has never been one to pass up the opportunity to try something new on her career/life path. Her favorite thing to do is to share stories, which she’s trying her hand at now with her writings. In her adult life she has lived in the USA and also in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia, and but no matter where she is her heart always travels home to the Blue Ridge Mountains where her many friends, family, and precious memories reside. In the future, V.West dreams of one day editing her bio down to a crisp and clever one liner, but hasn't been able to craft that yet. Maybe some day… V.West would like to sincerely thank you for reading her story and hopes that you enjoyed it. She hopes to be able to share many more with you soon. Take care & God bless.
Who's on Second?
by V West
It was hard for Peanut to be a star player on the local baseball team, since she had never even got a chance to join them on the field. That all changed one day when a case of chicken pox suddenly struck some key teammates. Peanut did not go on to be a hall-of-famer; but she did leave her mark in the one game that she saved at the last minute, back when she was known as "Bat Person."
After the Roman Cemetery
by V West
After the Roman Cemetery is a true story about a very unexpected and tragic event that occurred on what was supposed to be a typical sightseeing day in rural Syria by a typical American girl. Most things we hear about Syria are the political events shared in the media. Here we share a very personal event as written in the author's diary on October 10, 1993.
