Biography's Source: From the publisher
Victoria Schochet Lustbader was born and raised in New York City. After graduating college with a bachelor's in English, she spent thirteen years as an editor of science fiction and fantasy (first at Harper & Row, then at Putnam/Berkley), and worked with authors such as Ursula K. LeGuin, Harlan Ellison, Robert Silverberg, Frank Herbert, and Philip Jose Farmer. In 1982 she married author Eric Van Lustbader. For the next several years she continued in the publishing business as a free-lance editor, but then began a second, decade-long career with The Nature Conservancy on Long Island and throughout New York State, as a fund-raiser and board member. Six years ago, Victoria made the tumultuous decision to become a writer herself. She and her husband divide their time between Southampton, New York, and New York City.
