About Victoria



Animal Advocate

Spiritual Adventurer

What is your favorite word? Irrepressible. It reminds me that I’m supposed to bounce back. Every time.

Best story: I had a $1 press card from Teen Life magazine. I took it seriously and got into my first Beatles press conference at 14. When I was 17, Paul McCartney bought me a drink. I thought, “You have to keep up with this writing thing. It makes miracles happen.”

What’s your astrology? Aries sun, Taurus moon, Sagittarius rising — March 21, 1950, Kansas City, Missouri, 11:45 pm.

Most meaningful movie? Auntie Mame, the 1958 Rosalind Russell original, set in 1930s Manhattan. Mame, a fashionable free-thinker with a heart of gold, was my childhood role model. Still is.

Age Like a Yogi

Pre-order now and be invited to an exclusive live zoom seminar for pre-order readers only

My 14th book, Age Like a Yogi: A Heavenly Path to a Dazzling Third Act, is coming this winter and is available for presale now. Not a how-to-do-yoga-postures book at all, this is rather an exploration of the practical wisdom of yoga, the youth-preserving secrets of ayurveda (yoga’s sister science), and the life-enhancing power of ahimsa, living gently, to create peace, pizzazz and vitality in every decade.

Preorder from your favorite local bookstore or online from:

Amazon U.S.

Amazon Canada

Amazon UK





Presales mean the world in giving new books a great start in life, and if you’d consider ordering now, I’d love to include you in an exclusive Age Like a Yogi all-day seminar to celebrate the book’s January 14 pub date. This event will be via Zoom with the recording available should you not be able to attend live.

We’ll cover in this New Year/New You seminar:

  • An exploration of the concept of aging like a yogi
  • How to live in a way that gives us the best shot at health and vitality as long as we live
  • A dive into ayurvedic self-care: learning your dosha (body type), and suggestions on daily routine and living in harmony with nature
  • How to care for vata dosha, which increases in everyone in the post-50 decades and looks like signs of aging
  • Ways to build a spiritual foundation that helps us understand through and through that we are more than our body and mind, and that there is purpose and meaning woven through our lives
  • Interactive sessions of gentle yoga asanas, pranayama (breathing) and meditation

Mark your calendar:
Sunday, January 12, 2025
11 am to 6 pm Eastern Time
(8-3 PT, 9-4 MT, 10-5 CT, 4-11 GMT)

To receive the Zoom code, preorder your copy and forward your receipt to Marie Dore, [email protected].

When reading the New York Times, I keep a dictionary nearby because I’m sure to come upon a word I don’t know. A year or so ago I learned in this way that the word oeuvre means in English the full collection of a writer’s or composer’s works.

After I learned the word, I lined up all my books—every edition, and a couple of out-of-print guided journals too —and took this picture. If you click here, you’ll go to my Books and Articles page, where you can explore a bit about each one, and find links to some recent articles of mine as well.

If you prefer to start by looking ahead, click here to get a glimpse of Age Like a Yogi, my newest book, now available for pre-order.
