Victoria Carnell comes late to the field of writing, though her mother's avid love for reading and her father's passion for the philosophy of language strongly influenced her formative years. Due to the many opportunities to interact with people from all walks of life, she has garnered an abundance of material to inform her writing. Victoria serves in Christian ministry in Wesleyan Churches in Australia, alongside her husband. Being employed in the spheres of management and education in the wider community has afforded her many valuable experiences. Her children, their partners and her grandchildren delight her life. She approaches life from the perspective of a Christian worldview and her aim is to encourage her readers to develop a relationship with the Redeemer, by identifying with her characters as they wrestle with the issues of life and faith.
