Victoria Hanley's Bio


  Victoria Hanley

I spent years preparing for a writing career by holding as many contrasting jobs as possible, from baking bread to teaching anatomy and hosting radio shows. Iíve lived in California, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Oregon, and Colorado, and traveled throughout North America via plane, train, bus, car, and bicycle. Who knew Iíd be the author of 7 books published in 12 languages!

My novels have won many honors and awards at home and abroad, and inspired two nonfiction writing books: Seize the Story: A Handbook for Teens Who Like to Write, and Wild Ink: Success Secrets to Writing and Publishing in the Young Adult Market. I teach writing at Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver and at Northern Colorado Writers in Fort Collins.
