About Victoria Corliss

Often mistaken for sisters, Leigh and Victoria (Vikki) consider themselves twins from different mothers.

We met on the sidelines of our sons’ baseball game and quickly bonded over books, baseball politics, and Mrs. Brown’s ‘famous chocolate chip cookies’. No surprise to anyone, our decision to write a book also came about over a pizza dinner and we've been sharing a love for writing and eating ever since.

Second Chances is a story about getting a new lease on life, new beginnings, and that's exactly what it is for us. Following long careers in public relations (Vikki) and finance/interior design (Leigh), and with sons about to trade in the home nest for college dorms, we were both ready to chart a new course for ourselves.

The decision to write a book was a natural choice for both of us. Vikki's career-based writing skills paired with Leigh's innate story-telling talents have enabled us to create fiction and produce a book we hope brings you loads of reading pleasure.

We're often asked, 'but how do you write a book together?'. Please refer to paragraph one: we're twins from different mothers, literally and figuratively.

We think in the same twisted way and share the same crazy ideas as well as the same hair stylist and esthetician. Our relationship is unique not only in the way we synch but also the way we balance, push, and motivate each other.

This is our first literary collaboration but not our last. We're excited to announce that our second novel, The Pie Sisters set in New York's Finger Lakes region, is slated for release in 2014.

When we're not doing site research, we're writing at home in Rhode Island where we live with our husbands and sons. We'd love to hear from you so email us at or visit our website

Wonderful and heart touching. The book an easy read yet you are vividly captured by every character. The writers create an environment where you feel the anguish, pain, giddiness, excitement and of course love that characters all experience as the story unfolds. I even found myself tearing up while reading on the NYC subway! Talk about a story that really lets you forget your surroundings :)

Can't wait for the next one!

Fun, light reading, yet first time in a long time that I actually left a book that had me frozen in my seat at the end - gotta read it!!! Can't wait to read what Brown and Corliss come up with in their next novel - due out in a year....

It was an enjoyable read! I became intrigued, curious about the story line immediately - it kept me reading to see how it would all play out. A real reading deal I think. I hope they write more.

I love the characters and story that Vikki and Leigh create. Their back stories are interesting and well written. Once I started the book I was hooked and couldn’t put it down because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. A quick read that anyone will enjoy. I look forward to their next book. Great Job!!!
