Victoria teaches in Seton Hill University’s Master’s of Fine Arts program in Writing Popular Fiction. This is one of the only programs in the country that teaches writers to create - and market - the fiction that sells. Upon graduation from Seton Hill's program, you will have completed a full-length market-ready novel, earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from a leading liberal arts University, and become part of a supportive network of published authors. The program teaches students to write marketable novels in popular genres like mystery, romance, science fiction, horror, and fantasy. Additional specialties include literature for children and adolescents, and cross-genre blends like romantic suspense or young adult mysteries.

America is known as a melting pot thanks to a large number of immigrants who have come here from all over the world. New York City has earned the title of being a beacon to the world thanks to places like Ellis Island and the iconic Statue of Liberty. When New York was first forming, it became the hub of progress and business, making it the ideal place for immigrants to come and start a family and a whole new life. This website provides valuable research topics on immigration and immigrants.
