Valerie Ipson free-lances for a regional newspaper and has authored several award-winning children's stories. She has always loved reading, but never thought she'd be on the author side of a book. She recently released her debut novel, IDEAL HIGH, and while high school is not something she ever wants to relive, through the fictional eyes of her main character, Taryn, it's pretty awesome.
She loves her family and Hershey Milk Chocolate Almond & Toffee Nuggets. She hopes she can give readers the same experience she has enjoyed through the years while being curled up with a good book!
