Victoria Noe has been a writer most of her life, but didn't admit it until 2009. After earning a Masters from the University of Iowa in Speech & Dramatic Art, she moved to Chicago, where she worked professionally as a stage manager, director and administrator, as well as a founding board member of the League of Chicago Theatres. Her next career was as a professional fundraiser, raising money for arts, educational and AIDS service organizations. After a concussion ended a successful sales career, she switched gears to keep a promise to a friend to write a book. Her freelance articles have appeared in Chicago Tribune and Windy City Times. She also reviews books on BroadwayWorld.com. Victoria lives in Chicago with her family.
