My name is Victoria and I am a writer living in London.
During the day, it’s all arts and culture. Whether it’s theatre, art, fashion or opera, film, music, books or ballet, I’m fortunate enough to live in a city that has it all. Reviews of everything I see and do will be posted up here.
Each month, I also send out newsletters of recommended shows and art exhibitions to see in London. If you want read back issues of these and sign up for future mailouts, have a look here.
Away from the arts and culture, I also write books, plays and screenplays. (Basically, I’m really tired!)
My second book, Darkness, was published on September 1, 2016. My first novel, it is set in the near-future and follows a violent all-female terrorist group violently resisting the reconstruction of a patriarchal state in the UK in the wake of the collapse of the West, destroyed by war and economic collapse . You can read more about the book here, including excerpts.
My debut book, Banking on Burlesque, was my memoir of the years I lived a double life as an investment banker and burlesque performer – and what happened when those two worlds collided. Read more about my extraordinary experiences here.
I am also a playwright, and a film and television screenwriter. Details on my finished work The Murder of Anna Politkovskaya and Votes for Women are available on this site. My work has also been performed on stage in the Off-West-End show Burlexe.
Enough to keep me going, right? But if you have an offer to put on my plate, or you want to have a chat about possible projects, you can always contact me here.
