Welcome to my site.  Thank you for visiting! I believe that the best stories exist in everyday life.   My books celebrate the mosaic of life while examining the pieces that make us unique.  Small towns.  Big towns.  Imperfect heroines and everyday heroes.  People working their way out of frightening situations and finding love.

Valda Stefani writes vivid, visual romantic suspense with lots of action.  Her home is on Canada’s wild West Coast.  She takes breaks on her bicycle or in the garden, or trail-walking with her little rescue dog Chiquita.  She’s witnessed some interesting human behaviour in her various jobs , which included an early stint as a loans officer and secretary for a Victorian cemetery chock-full of stories and historic characters.  A  researcher and archivist, she’s a lifelong writer and editor.  Family, nature and history loom large for Valda and she volunteers at a small archives.
