Tori’s been through a lot in her life. Bullying, assault, the loss of a loved one, and a traumatic heartbreak have led to an internal battle of mental health issues. With no one to talk to but her journal, she’s turned to writing as an outlet for her thoughts and feelings. She’s always dreamed of becoming a published author, but when life gets in the way and continuously beats her down, she forgets how to dream. Besides, who would want to hear any story she has to tell? She’s a nobody in her own life, just the antagonist in her own story. When her writing isn’t enough for her anymore, Tori decides to take matters into her own hands with a more drastic measure.

Now having survived a car accident that should have been fatal, Tori is left to deal with the aftermath of her actions and her own internal battle in a whole new way: St. Vincent’s Mental Hospital. Terrified and alone, Tori hates the idea of being here but will come to see that she may not actually be as alone as she thinks once she meets her fellow ward members. Through her feelings, writings, and dreams, Tori tries to put together the broken pieces of her life to build a healthy mind. Between therapies, medications, her peers, and her inner demons, will Tori be able to figure out what it truly means to be happy?

Victoria has been through a lot of hardship, which led to bouts of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self-hatred, self-harm, and a suicide attempt. At 22, she became a published author of an auto biographical/self-help book, Trust Me: Through the Eyes of a Survivor, which talks about it all. Since her role as an author, she has also become a motivational speaker. Now 27, this is her first novel, also based on her life. She is passionate about mental health awareness and support, and she strives to make a difference, help others, and save lives through her experiences and her writing.

    Just finished Chris' book The Storyteller. To be truthful somewhere in chapter two I was wondering if I wanted to continue reading this book, I'm glad I continued. Chris weaved a tale of a young boy searching for himself into a fantasy that comes full circle to real life. I wish I had met a man like Moses when I was a young man. Please encourage Chris to keep writing and maybe include an e-mail address in his next book.
    Chris is a real good guide but a rally great storyteller. Best of Luck in future endeavors
