VICTORIA PRATT: THE AUTHOR
Victoria has spent her adult life playing superheroes, supervillains, and cops on television and in movies. From her start on the action series, John Woo’s Once a Thief, to Marvel Comic’s Mutant X, to ABC’s Daybreak, to a mountain of Lifetime movies, Victoria has learned a thing or two about crafting strong female characters.
Victoria’s writing career actually started long before her acting career, with a monthly column in Oxygen Magazine. Next came screenplays, women’s magazines, and finally, this, her debut novel, Double Down.
Victoria spends her time between her home in the Hollywood Hills, and her family in Canada. Currently, Victoria recurs as Casey McMurtry on Canada’s longest running hour-long drama, Heartland, where she literarily… that’s right… runs the rodeo.
