Victoria M. Solomon grew up doing two things: reading and drawing.

Today, as an artist, she works on a range of projects from graphite portraiture to book illustration. As a writer, she pens young adult novels about warhorses, forbidden love, and girls with weapons. 

She was a print journalist for five years, and then a writer for the children's education company Orda Korea in South Korea. In Seoul, in addition to developing an intense addiction to kimchi, she edited storybooks based on the Emmy-award winning PBS show WordWorld. Currently, she ghostwrites for Pearson Education. 

She lives in East Lansing with her two little kids and her spouse, Mr. Present Perfect, who wields laser-sharp editing skills and a slew of horrendous puns that only get worse with age.
