I received a very nice email over the weekend from a former student–a talented young lady named K. Victoria Chase. I had Tori in my writing class back in 2010, and her talent and dedication were evident even then. Apparently, she’s been putting that talent to good use. Tori wrote to inform me that she has received a book contract from Desert Breeze Publishing. She is also maintaining a blog that details her journey from aspiring to published author. Congratulations Tori!
