Virginia was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi and has never strayed far beyond those boarders. Her fondest memories include listening to stories recounted by family and friends around the large dinner table. She was a lover of books even from a young age, and soon started writing them herself. After marriage, two kids, and a bitter divorce, Virginia realized her characters needed the same thing she needed. Now a mother of two grown sons and one daughter-in-law, she writes and speaks about the healing grace and restoration power of Jesus Christ.
