My Story

Three languages, four countries, six cities...

I was born as Maria Victoria di Donato, so naturally, I go by Vicky. My love for reading formed at the age of seven, when I found the Dear Dumb Diary Series by Jim Benton. From there, I've explored literature right and left, and am currently enrolled in a BFA in Creative Writing from OCAD University. In 2021, I graduated with a BA in English Literature from Toronto Metropolitan University (Ryerson).

My current project is The City of Old, a YA novel set in post-apocalyptic Toronto.

The City of Old

Coming Soon

A YA sci-fi dystopia set in futuristic and apocalyptic ‘Old Toronto’, the novel, The City of Old, follows a young woman named Nyah who wakes up scarily near death, with no memories of who she is. Three boys traveling through come upon her – Idres, a kind seemingly natural leader; JR, a distrustful hothead; and Isaac, the charming yet naïve loyal friend. These boys have run away from Great City, their old home, and adopt Nyah into their group. Nyah tags along with them to search for a new home in Old Toronto, fuelled by rumours of a Great City refugee settlement in the abandoned city. However, all is not what it seems in Old Toronto, and after surviving a perilous encounter with a mysterious enemy who might be connected to Great City, the group realize that the question of who Nyah used to be may not be the biggest mystery they have on their hands.
