My name is Victoria and I am a independent children's author. Last year I published my first children's fantasy fiction book, Darkmoor The Darkness Discovered.
On the 1st June, the second book in my fantasy fiction series, Darkmoor The Curse of Crow, is due for publication.
Darkmoor is a series of five books in total and aside from writing, I recently signed an optioning agreement with a UK based producer who is working alongside two American producers to adapt the Darkmoor series into a series of family feature films.
I choose to independently publish in order to fulfil my childhood ambition. Upon leaving college I met my husband and we started a family. During this time writing stories became less as I was busy raising my family.
One day on holiday, my son and I were discussing his future. Like all Mum's I told him if he worked hard he could achieve anything! His reply was, 'Why haven't you achieved becoming an author then?'
Very wise words from my then 7 year old son, and I couldn't answer him. Since then I have spent time writing and planning my series, building relationships within primary schools and building up a reader fan base.
If you would like to find out more about myself or Darkmoor, please feel free to visit the website. If you would like to get in touch, I'd love to hear from you.
Thank you for reading my profile and I hope you enjoying reading my books.
