Val writes stories found in the darker shadows of life, yet her characters still find a powerful light to shine no matter the challenges they face.
She lives in Portland, Oregon, where she has been called “…one of the best and most powerful new writers appearing on the scene” by Pulphouse Fiction Magazine.
When she’s not writing, she loves finding new things to photograph. She can often be found playing epic boardgames, and may also be known to be a fantastic cook. She loves nature and would love to live in a cabin in the wilds.
Also, she rides motorcycles.
