Valerie was born in Montreal, Canada, but lived for fourteen years in Plano, Texas before moving with her family to the Raleigh area in North Carolina.

She is currently working on a sequel to “Bridget’s Journey”, a prequel to “Everlasting” and a historical fiction novella with a twist on the fairy tale Snow White!
