Valerie and her husband Steven make their home in a quaint part of Southwestern Pennsylvania where they both work and play, enjoying their life together. An avid reader, Valerie has had a passion for books since she was a child. It was while she was in the fourth grade that she decided she had the heart of a writer, and began pursuing that passion and chasing her dreams. When she’s not pounding out a story on her laptop while sitting on her back deck—which she calls her slice of Heaven—or while relaxing in the picturesque park near her home, Valerie’s either at work or traveling with Steve or spending fun time with her family.
Valerie is the grand prize winner of the LASR 2008 Writing Competition. She is also a grand prize winner of the Donard Publishing Writing Competition.
