Victoria Carter is a Black, queer, writer, cook, and anti-racism fanatic. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, she has also lived in Utah, New York, and Indiana. A fan of occupying the liminal spaces between somewhere and nowhere, she is currently preparing to move into her ‘98 Toyota Tacoma to live on the road full-time.
