I WAS LEFT FOR DEAD AT 17. I woke up in the hospital with my head wrapped in layers of bandages and no idea who I was. The doctor who saved my life called me Victoria, named after the tiny island off the Oregon coast where I was found lying on the beach with a traumatic brain injury. I was determined to recover and find my family.
The only clue to my identity led me to the Dark Angel in Arches National Park. I wished upon a star and met Griffon on the primitive trail, a local guide who was not exactly what he seemed. Mysterious Shadow People who lurked in the park threatened my life. Were they real or the result of my brain injury? I am strong, I am brave and I don't back down from a challenge. I had already beaten the odds to live.
Who Is Victoria Island? is a contemporary young-adult fantasy that I wrote for my granddaughters, Aria and Piper. Victoria is on a journey growing up and making decisions as all teenagers will encounter on their way to adulthood. (with the exception of memory loss and scary Shadow People) I have enjoyed creating her. She is brave, independent and a little bit badass. You are going to cheer for her as she faces danger and betrayal to find her true identity.

I stepped out of my mud-splattered Jeep in the Devils Garden parking area at Arches National Park and surveyed my new domain. Standing at the trailhead, a warm breeze ruffled through my long auburn ponytail and tickled my nose with the scent of sagebrush.
