Join us as we discuss her work, as well as the approaches and strategies she uses for success.

About Victoria Zigler “Tori” (information adapted from her website)

Tori says, “I’m a blind vegan poet and children’s author, who was born and raised in the shadow of the Black Mountains of Wales, UK, spent some time living in Alberta, Canada, and Hastings, England, UK – returning to Wales in between.

“Despite spending far too much time in hospital, and eventually losing my sight to Congenital Glaucoma, I’ve been writing since I was old enough to know how, with no plans to stop any time soon. I have a long list of publications to my name, including several poetry collections, **manny children’s stories, a story in the sci-fi and fantasy anthology Wyrd Worlds II, three poems in the Poetry Treasures anthology, and a poem in the Stand Together charity anthology.

“Vegan due to both a love for animals and dairy allergy, as well as an Eclectic Pagan, I would describe myself as a combination of Hermione Granger and Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter books: Hermione’s thirst for knowledge and love of books, combined with Luna’s wandering mind and alternative way of looking at the world. I have a wide variety of interests, designed to exercise both the creative and logical sides of my brain, which I dabble in at random depending on what I feel like doing at any given time, and am most likely to be found playing with my petkids, involved in calls with the ACB Community, curled up somewhere with a cup of tea and a book, working on some kind of craft project, or trying to keep one step ahead of those pesky typo fairies while writing my own books.”

Tori is now back to living in Wales, along with my Canadian husband, Kelly, and our petkids – a West Highland White Terrier named Lilie, a Cavapoo named Logan, and a Hermann’s Tortoise named Artemis.

Her books are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and smashwords.
