About the Author (Author Profile)
Victoria Shockley is a writer and editor, an avid reader of fiction, and a sophomore at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. She’s majoring in English with a concentration in language and writing, and has aspirations to graduate a year ahead of her class to become a professional writer or editor. Recently she declared a minor in French, and is hoping to have the opportunity to participate in NCSU’s study abroad program in Paris, France for the week of spring break. Victoria is one of those rare students who actually enjoys school and learning, and she is proud to have a GPA that falls within the top 9% of the sophomore class at NCSU. Currently she is participating in an internship with Women Writers, Women Books for the fall semester. She is also a part-time copy editor for the NCSU school newspaper, the Technician. When she’s not fine-tuning her own writing (or that of others), you can find her absorbed in a novel, singing slightly off-key renditions of karaoke songs, crossing items off her “bucket list,” or practicing her French to become fluent in the language one day.
