A published writer and poet; also a facilitator, she is interested in inter-cultural dialogue, and inspiring others to write. Some of her works are in books and journals in SA and overseas.

Victoria loves animals, and humans too, but ‘these can be hard work’… Loyal to family, friend, even foes, can be a ‘Donkey Xote ’ and a pain in the neck… For cover… mountains and trees,writing, chatting, meditation, music, working with clay, etc.
