Victoria Pinder grew up in Irish Catholic Boston before moving to the Miami sun. She’s worked in engineering, after passing many tests proving how easy Math came to her. Then hating her life at the age of twenty four, she decided to go to law school. Four years later, after passing the bar and practicing very little, she realized that she hates the practice of law. She refused to one day turn 50 and realize she had nothing but her career and hours at a desk. After realizing she needed change, she became a high school teacher. Teaching is rewarding, but writing is a passion.

During all this time, she always wrote stories to entertain herself or calm down. Her parents are practical minded people demanding a job, and Victoria spent too many years living other people’s dreams, but when she sat down to see what skill she had that matched what she enjoyed doing, writing became so obvious. The middle school year book when someone wrote in it that one day she’d be a writer made sense when she turned thirty.

When she woke up to what she wanted, the dream of writing became so obvious. She dreams of writing professionally, where her barista can make her coffee and a walk on the beach, can motivate her tales. Contemporary romances are just fun to write. She’s always thinking whose getting hurt and whose story is next on the list to fall in love. Victoria’s love of writing has kept her centered and focused through her many phases, and she’s motivated to write many stories.

Member of Florida Romance Writers, Contemporary Romance, Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal chapter of RWA, and in Savvy Authors.

TheZostraAffair500x700A hundred years from now, Earth has trading partners with alien beings, mostly humanoid. However, going into space brought forth an unknown enemy who attacks Earth at will.

The Zoastra is part of the Earthseekers, an organization originally designed to go into space. Its new mission is to find Earth’s enemies.

Ariel is stuck on a Victorian planet and steals Grace’s body and life to get off the planet. Grace must get her body back before Ariel bonds with Grace’s husband, Peter. Then there is Cross, the man on a mission to find those who killed his family. Ariel is attracted to Cross, but she’s stolen someone’s life.

General, are you sure you want us to go?” Peter asked.

Aurelius smiled. “Think of it as a gift. The massages are known around the galaxy.”

The friendship between her husband and the General made working with her husband possible. Regulation amongst officers didn’t support familial relations. Aurelius added, “They are reputed to be the best hosts in this quadrant, and you need to relax.”

Grace barely contained a snort. The General had no idea. She bit back her sharp tongue. For over ten months she’d spent more time with strangers than she did her own husband, unless working in Command counted. Her lips pursed. It had stopped being enough a while ago. She needed to stop working around the clock just to see Peter.

Peter hoped to run his own ship one day. The emptiness inside her grew, though she’d known all along of Peter’s dreams. She let out a small exhale. When they’d been six-years-old, back on Earth, he’d made missions into space sound like a dream world where excitement and adventure waited around every star in the sky. She’d adored him, following him everywhere. But the reality left a lot to be desired. Covering her mouth, she told herself to stop pouting.

She’d always loved him.

At his station, Captain Cross took a quick step forward, gaining everyone’s attention. “I joined this crew to fight the aliens who attacked us, not to maintain good relations with model types not looking to serve in the fight. We need to find those who attacked us, sir.”

“We are not pushing into deep space to search for them until we have a full crew,” Peter answered. “We’re almost ready, but General Aurelius demands the best crew available from all the colonies.”
