Victoria Freyre is a writer and editor whose deep seeded love of writing dates back to her first completed work, a five chapter story she penned at age 12. It chronicled the unrequited love of a teen for her next door neighbor. Whether she is jotting down bits of wacky conversation between her unsuspecting friends or writing what she thinks will be the quintessential great american novel, she can always be found armed with some kind of messy notebook and various multi-colored pens. Born and raised in the humid suburbs of Miami, Victoria currently resides in the delicious city of Chicago with her husband and her slightly maladjusted pup.
