Victoria Bylin -- A Dream Comes True

Dear Readers,
Do you ever pause to look back over your life and to think, “Wow, I can’t believe everything’s that’s happened.”  Marriage. Kids. Homes. Jobs. Pets. Trips. My list is long and it gets longer every year.

This year I hit a milestone I never even imagined. I was that little girl, then a teenager, with the colored pens and the notebook, writing stories late into the night. As long as I can remember, I’ve dreamed of writing a book. It seemed like a big, lofty goal--something almost impossible, something miraculous. Definitely the stuff of dreams . . . and yet . . . dreams come true.

My 14th book came out in April 2012.  The story is called “Josie’s Wedding Dress” and it’s in the Love Inspired Historical anthology called Brides of the West.  Here’s the blurb:

Josie’s Wedding Dress by Victoria Bylin
Desperate for someone to help her save her ranch, Josie Bright makes a deal with Ty Donner. Now the man who left her waiting at the altar is making her hope for things she had long stopped wishing for.

And here’s the link to the Amazon page for the 13 books prior to this one . . .  Four of the LIHs make up the “Women of Swan’s Nest” series.  They stand alone, but here’s the official order:   The Maverick Preacher, Wyoming Lawman, The Outlaw’s Return and Marrying the Major.  

Long live westerns!  LIH offers a variety of settings, but cowboys, lawmen, outlaws and preachers are my favorites.  Have a great day!

Best wishes,


  1. Vicki, I'm glad your dream came true and that we get to benefit! Really enjoy your books...I think The Maverick Preacher is my favorite.
