An Interview with Victoria Young

 An Interview with Victoria Young

Where are you from? Manhattan, New York City

When did you decide to start writing? At the age of 13

 Were your friends and family supportive? Yes

 Who was your biggest supporter? My sisters, Carole Gilmore and Tonya Lewis

Do you have a specific writing style? Provocative, poetic and compared to Quentin Tarantino with a classic flair.

What inspires you? Love, the beauty of being a woman, powerful preaching, and when I’m mistreated.

Who are your favorite writers? Why? Nicholas Sparks and Jackie Collins. Nicholas makes you cry as he inspires what true love means and Jackie tells it like it is and doesn’t give a damn.

How long does it take for you to write a book? One year.

Who designed your covers? I did.

 Is there anything you want to say to fans? For women not to derail their self-worth. Recognize they are gifts from God, molded with grace, and should sparkle like sapphire. Don’t settle for less.

About the Author:
Winning an essay contest for Fannie Mae landed me on Good Morning America, spring 2000 under the maiden name: Victoria A. Martin. My appearance encouraged and brought to fruition that my writing can move people. I developed a passion for writing inspiring themes whether it's in poetry, plays, screenplays, or novels. Presenting my characters with challenging situations and allowing their emotions to guide me gives me the greatest pleasure with writing. I've written and produced three 2 hour plays and three short plays affording me the opportunity to refine my skills on my first novel trilogy: Passion Whispers an Execution.

I developed the love for the arts at the age of thirteen when I had a report due one Monday. I ran the streets with my friends disregarding report. Aware that my parents were going to scold me if I didn't have the report completed, I stood home one Sunday ignoring all calls. And read a book in one day: Lorraine Hansberry, A Raisin in the Sun. The report took me about three hours to complete. From that point, I fell in love with poetry and how words can tell a beautiful story. 

My writing has been compared to Quentin Tarantino with a classic flair, emotional and provocative. I believe in writing oh my God stories, which close out with a bang and bring a joyous spirit to the human experience. 

When I'm not sitting in my office scrambling my brain for flawed characterization, I enjoy reading, producing fashion shows, designing fashions, traveling, using my creativity for church functions, and choreographing praise dancing. Dancing has been incorporated in all my plays as well as my first novel. I've danced ballet, jazz, African, and contemporary from the age of thirteen. I was truly blessed to have my dancers perform for Congressman Charlie Rangel. They were also given the opportunity to perform at all-paid-expense trips traveling out of New York State for church retreats. Today my dancers are in college and some took on the role of motherhood. I give thanks to God for keeping them.

***Hosted by The Book Nymph PR***

Join The Book Nymph and author, Linda Riesenberg Fisler for the release party for her debut novel, Blind Influence.

As always, there will be games, prizes, contests, a live Q&A and more! 

Successful, sexy attorney Nicole Charbonneau feels content with her life and career as a star at a powerful law firm in Washington, DC. She is blind, however, to the circumstances that will put her at the center of a web of deceit, murder, power plays and conspiracies. Across the ocean, British MI-6 Agent Sean Adkins is tracking a cold-blooded assassin known as the Serpent, who’s been hired to kill President Andrews. The Serpent cares only for the millions he’ll get, not why the powerful group of men wants Andrews killed.

The Serpent, a master of disguise, completes his job, but will it be his last? Sean will stop at nothing to get revenge, which includes setting a trap. Nicole, through her work and her connection with Robert Jenkins, a powerful young senator who happens to head the Intelligence Committee, pieces together who hired the assassin. Will the senator reveal to the public all he knows, or will revealing the identities of the powerful businessmen, politicians and government officials be too much for a country already in a fragile state?

Blind Influence, set in 1979 when the United States was on the brink of its second oil crisis, takes readers on a wild ride of political intrigue and personal discovery.
