About Victoria

Victoria Grefer is a New Orleans girl, born and raised, with an appreciation for the charm of the Deep South. She has a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and English and a master’s degree in Spanish literature, all from the University of Alabama. She also completed coursework towards a doctorate at the University of Chicago before shifting paths to focus on her fiction.

She started college as a journalism major and worked a year as a staff reporter for the Alabama student newspaper, “The Crimson White.” That experience that helped her realize, once and for all, that her love for writing lay with fiction. She started enrolling in creative writing classes the following semester, completing the English department’s 3 course fiction writing series. She started blogging in April, 2012.

From the age of six, Victoria dreamed of becoming a novelist, and her writing career began in the third grade with a series of stories about herself and her friends solving mysteries. In high school she fell in love with the fantasy genre and started writing fantasy as an undergraduate student. Now she has five novels under her belt, though only three are soon to be republished as the Herezoth trilogy:

  • The Crimson League (Book I)
  • The Magic Council (Book II)
  • The King’s Sons (Book III)

She is also currently working on a prequel Herezoth novel which will focus on the experience of a palace servant during sorcerer-nobleman’s Zalski Forzythe’s coup, which sets up the events of “The Crimson League,” while she works full-time with health insurance authorizations. She is also a certified medical coder.

Victoria loves Catholicism and Catholic theology, cats, classic movies, cribbage, nature and space documentaries, and random, useless trivia.
