Val wishes she
could claim she's an international jewel thief with a fascinating
adventurous life, but instead, she's a nurse who is still recovering
from the onslaught of the Covid pandemic.
She was raised
in a military family--one mom, one dad, one sister, one brother--and
they moved around a lot during her childhood. She had to make
friends fast and learn to let go to move on every year or so.
In the process, she became fascinated by people and what made
them tick. This has been useful in her writing life where she
has written a variety of characters in a collection of short
stories, in a romance, and in three books with co-writer MJ
Her first book
with LPP will be a reissuance of her romance, In
The Works. Meanwhile, she's working on a brand-new
romance she hopes to finish in 2023.
