Victoria Wilder is a New York-based author with dreams of seeing the world. She wrote her first “book” in the fourth grade for a writing competition featuring a haunting at a sleepover. From that, she won her first ever prize, sparking a passion for writing that has followed her into adulthood.
Victoria has been an avid reader for longer than she could speak. She has always loved dark, romantic tales and classic horror. Her favorite books as a child were Harlequin Romance novels, R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps series, and Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles.
As she transitioned out of childhood, her tastes skewed towards some of our oldest tales. From Bram Stoker’s Dracula to Dumas’ The Three Musketeers and others--books like Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray and Le Fanu’s Carmilla--these classics have influenced her work and still draw her in to this day. Truly, she finds it easier to read something written in the 1800s than books written five years ago.
