Victoria Barbour is an Amazon bestselling author of romance novels set in Newfoundland. Her fierce pride of place is a mainstay in her writing. Indeed, she can imagine no better setting for her works, and hopes that her readers will one day come to witness Newfoundland and Labrador’s rustic beauty for themselves.
She is a proud self-published author and hopes to help genre writers, especially those interested in romance, to realize their dreams. Victoria currently has six books published in digital format, four available in print.
Some would consider Victoria a townie (she was born in St. John’s, and raised above her family’s fish and chips restaurant) but she is equally at home anywhere in the province. She has traveled and lived in other parts of Canada, but chose to make her home where her heart has long resided. Victoria has a degree in History from Memorial University of Newfoundland, with a minor in Newfoundland Studies. The only thing that stands between her and a Master’s degree in History from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia is her thesis. She has a background in broadcast journalism, advertising, and marketing. She is a proud member of several writing organizations including the Romance Writers of America (RWA), their affiliate chapter, Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada (RWAC), and the Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador (WANL). She’s also thrilled to be considered a Scribe Wench, and a part of Romance Writers Weekly.
Victoria counts herself lucky to be surrounded by an incredibly supportive family, and thanks her husband daily for his unerring faith in her, and for being a wonderful father to their energetic but always entertaining son.
