About Me

Image: Victoria Brown, writer

I’m an author of thrillers and upmarket women’s fiction, represented by Annette Crossland of A for Authors agency. 

My novel, Darling Girl, won the PageTurner Writing Award and LGBT genre award, and the ‘I Am In Print’ thriller competition. My upmarket women’s fiction novel, Season of Silence, was longlisted for the Caledonia Novel Award.

My work in progress was shortlisted for the PageTurner Mentorship Award and I have recently been granted Arts Council funding to further develop my writing.

I am a Curtis Brown Creative alumna. My short stories and flash fiction have been published in print and online.

I studied English Literature at the University of Cambridge and live in Cambridge, UK, with my young family. I enjoy reading crime and thriller, upmarket women’s fiction, historical and literary fiction.

I review ARCs via NetGalley and other books upon request. If you have a sapphic book you’d like to send me for review, please use the contact form. Please note: I don’t read SFF, horror or erotica.

In terms of non-fiction, I am interested in the history of gay rights, the lesbian and bi scene past and present, and all things feminism.

I’m an incorrigible people-watcher and, when given the chance, I’m to be found scribbling in coffee shops, in the pool, or at the drum kit.
