Nora Grant was a young woman from Portland, Oregon who would frequently spend her summers in Collinsport to be near her cousin, Will. She worked in a small gift shop and became close friends with Victoria Winters.

Vicki and Nora bore so many physical resemblances to one another, that many people alluded to the idea that they might twins. Whenever Vicki wasn’t busy with her duties at Collinwood, Nora and she would while away the daylight hours down at the beach near Widow's Hill or spend their evenings at the Blue Whale.

In June of 1967, Nora tried setting Vicki up with a local artist named Paul Caine. However, Vicki began to suspect that Caine might be dangerous and rebuffed his advances. That same evening, a mysterious stranger, mistaking Nora for Vicki, attacked her on the grounds of Collinwood. At first, Nora was convinced that her attacker was Paul Caine, but this was later proven to not be the case.


  • Despite the physical similarities between Nora and Vicki, there is no information provided in the Paperback Library continuity to suggest that Vicki and she could actually be related to one another. Information provided in the Lara Parker novel Dreams of the Dark establishes Vicki’s ambiguous heritage and certifies that she is not related to Nora Grant at all.
