Victoria James is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance.
Victoria always knew she wanted to be a writer and in grade five, she penned her first story, bound it (with staples and a cardboard cover) and did all the illustrations herself. Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again.
In high school she fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, Victoria pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened her own business. After her first child, Victoria knew it was time to fulfill her dream of writing romantic fiction.
Victoria is a hopeless romantic who is living her dream, penning happily-ever-after's for her characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but she's quite content living in suburbia with her husband, their two young children, and very bad cat.

Happy Holidays and all that...
I am a self-proclaimed Christmas Junkie. November 1st, all the Halloween and fall decorations come down and the path is cleared for Christmas. The Christmas season is never long enough, IMO. In Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in early/mid October, so by the time November rolls around, I'm ready to embrace the holidays.
This year I have two holiday releases-one week apart! This is a Christmas Junkie's dream come true! Both books incorporate my favourite things about the season...lots of snow, warm drinks, and family. I love the idea of people finding love and happiness in a season that can be magical.
In my current release, the hero hasn't had a magical Christmas since he was a child. The little girl in the book reminds him of his childhood and the love that comes with the season. In my next Christmas release, the hero is dealing with his own inner turmoil and must face his darkest fears in order to fully be the man he wants to be...and love the only woman for him.
I hope you have a magical holiday season!

Once she was fully educated, she decided to settle in Florida, but her car broke down in Texas and she’s lived in Dallas ever since. A cupcake and treadmill aficionado (obviously those things are connected), she spends her time watching arthouse movies and impossibly trashy TV, while living vicariously through the characters in the books she writes. Ophelia is the author of AIMEE & THE HEARTTHROB, the Definitely Maybe, Perfect Kisses and Abby Road series. Visit her books HERE, but don’t call when The Vampire Diaries (or Dawson’s Creek) is on. #PaceyLove
