'Dear Miklos' Snoqualmie author Victoria Bastedo writes romance novel

“Dear Miklos” is the name of Snoqualmie resident Victoria Bastedo’s newly published romance novel.

Published by Black Lyon, an independent Oregon house for fiction in trade paperbacks and e-books, “Dear Miklos” was released on August 1. The novel tells the story of Therese, who at 10 years old would have drowned had it not been for Miklos, the handsome Greek boy who dove from his boat to save her. Now grown, with years of letter writing between them, she needs him again. Recovering from an illness, Therese is advised to leave the Pacific Northwest rain behind and return to the Grecian sun, sea—and Miklos.

Bastedo is an active member of a local writing group, Sno Valley Writes, is married and has a large family. She tells writers to find others to share their dreams and enrich them.
