Texas Debut Authors: Victoria Scott, author of The Collector

Author Introduction

Victoria Scott
Today I am going to use my personal website to promote an upcoming event at my library, but you’ll want to be there so you can meet 6 debut authors – and the 2012 Printz Award Winning author John Corey Whaley.
Victoria Scott is one of the authors we’ll be featuring at our Texas Debut Authors event, May 9, 2013 at 6:30 pm at the Betty Warmack Branch Library in Grand Prarie, TX. She is the author is THE COLLECTOR Trilogy (Entangled Teen) and the FLOOD AND FIRE Trilogy (Scholastic). Victoria lives in Dallas with her husband and loves all things dark and creepy. 
Victoria, here are your three questions:
1)   If you met the main character from your book, Dante Walker, in real life, do you think you’d fall for him? 
I think my seventeen-year-old self would, absolutely. Today, maybe not. Not saying I wouldn’t eye stalk him, but I like to think I’m past falling for a hot guy who only wants to seduce me. Then again… 😉 
Christie and I both just read and reviewed The Collector for Entangled Teen week
 2)   What’s your favorite city? 
I’m going to go with New Orleans. There’s something about that atmosphere that’s just addicting. It’s got this electricity and this gloom that’s so beautiful.
3)   What are you eating for dinner tonight?
Ha! Um, it’s Friday so it’s definitely going to include a slice of cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. Not saying I’m going to actually eat there, but that thing will be in my belly by the end of the night. True story.  

I’m a YA writer with a die-hard affection for dark and humorous books. My work is represented by Sara Crowe of Harvey Klinger literary agency. I have a master’s degree in marketing, and currently live in Dallas with my husband, Ryan.

My first YA book, THE COLLECTOR, will be published by Entangled Teen, April 2013. It is the first book in a trilogy. My second YA series will begin with FIRE & FLOOD and is being published by Scholastic in spring 2014.

Victoria is deathly afraid of monkeys.  Find out more at her webpage.
