Victoria Lee was born and raised in Durham, North Carolina, where she practiced vegetarianism for twelve years until learning that spicy chicken wings are a treat. She's been a hitchhiker, a pizza aficionado, an EMT, an expat in China and Sweden, and a science PhD student, among other things. She's also a snob when it comes to fine whiskey. Lee spends the morning writing and the rest of the day attempting to impress her border collie puppy and make her experiments work. She and her partner currently reside in Pennsylvania.
