My name is V, and I’m addicted to storytelling in all its glorious forms: journalism, mass marketing, social media, poetry, nonfiction, fiction…in my mind, all of these mediums exist primarily to spread and grow ideas by appealing to our emotions, embedding values, and encouraging compassion on a psychological level.
As the old saying goes, teach someone a lesson or tell them a fact and they’ll remember it… for a while. But if you tell them a story? They’ll remember it FOREVER.
In the professional world, I use my storytelling abilities to sell products, services and people. First, by using my training as an investigative journalist to elicit information from even the most taciturn of sources, then applying my extremely diverse industry experience, research and creativity to the mix, all in the interest of producing solutions that address the current (and ideally, future) needs of the market. I’ve done this all over the world, for about fifteen years, altogether. (Dang, that’s a long time.)
I am also an author. (I auth. I have authed. I will continue to auth, probably until the day I die.)
I write books that are dark and twisty, but also hilarious. I like breaking rules and laughing in the face of propriety, especially when it comes to gender-based tropes. I’ve experimented with various categories and genres, but my main quest is to write brave fiction and nonfiction for women of all ages.
