About Victoria Giraud

I’m a writer/editor, mother, sister, cousin and lifelong friend to many, not necessarily in that order. I’m interested in all aspects of writing and expression: film, art, history, spiritual striving, and the nature of life and its meaning.  Growing up as an Army brat has provided me with many challenges and fulfilling experiences and adventures. I hope my readers enjoy my thoughts and will add their own.

I’ve been a newspaper editor and columnist, a magazine editor/writer, written an historical fiction novel, Melaynie’s Masquerade,  and a screenplay about Sir Francis Drake, and edited over 90 books in almost all genres. My novel is offered in hardbound, softbound and E-book  for Kindle on  Amazon Books. I am in the midst of publishing an E-book single: An Army Brat in Libya; Memories of Tripoli in the 1950s, and another single: Colonels Don’t Apologize.

    Hi–I was indulging myself in a nostalgic trip to Places I Once Lived when I saw your article in Kalem. My family was stationed at Wheelus in 1958-1959, and I attended the first grade at the elementary school there. Your article was the first time I’ve seen a reference to Georgimpopuli (was there also a place called Cornimpopoli? That name is also stuck in my head! I was so very pleased to read your article–I have fond memories of our year there! Thank you for the trip down memory lane!

  3. Thanks for the info, Debbie. I’m sure we are related. Obedience Motley, my 18th century ancestor, married a Morehead and their son, John Motley Morehead, was the governor of North Carolina in the 1840s, I believe. He wasn’t in favor of the Civil War. He and his mother Obedience were buried in a Greensboro, N.C. cemetery. I did a blog on them. I was born in Danville, VA, not too far away.
    Would love to hear from you. [email protected] Victoria

  4. Thanks for the positive comment. I haven’t kept track of other blogs. I’m too busy writing and editing. Victoria

    is there any other site which gives such information in quality?
