Hi everyone My name is Victoria Zumbrum, 40 years old, married 14 years with 1 son. This is my very first blog. So bear with me. I have always wanted to have my own blog. I have always loved to read. I enjoy getting lost in a good book.
I love becoming part of the story and characters. I am hoping to bring my love of books to my readers.

I love reading different genres such as paranormal, young adult, romance, romantic suspense, mystery, Christian fiction, some horror, etc. The list goes on. I started reviewing books a couple of years ago and have done reviews for different blogs and even some authors. I really have enjoyed reviewing books and I will continue to do so. If anyone is interested in me reviewing a book for them, please contact me. I still have a lot to learn regarding my own blog so bear with me. I welcome and appreciate all followers.

1. What inspired you to be a writer?

*I’ve always wanted to be an author, but didn’t do anything about it until 2013. That was when I started my book blog (Tanya the book obsessed momma) that I had more confidence in myself. Then with the help of my two amazing best friends who are also authors themselves…they cheered me on and told me to go for it… and that’s how it all started. 
2. Are you married?  Kids?

 I’m married and have 2 children. They are 7 and 4.5. 
3.  What genre or genres do you like to write and read?

 I love a variety of genres. I love any type of romance (Contemporary to erotica). I also love a sweet christian book to history as well. Just depends on my mood. And paranormal…I love any type of paranormal. 

For me to write..well my debut was a contemporary and my current WIP is a paranormal…so variety. :)
