Victoria Lamb was born in 1966, daughter of the prolific novelist Charlotte Lamb. While studying Elizabethan and Jacobean playwrights at university, Victoria conceived a desire to write a series of novels about Shakespeare's 'Dark Lady'. Now a busy mother of five, she has finally achieved that ambition with The Queen's Secret, a gripping Tudor novel which revolves around one of Elizabeth I's ladies-in-waiting, Lucy Morgan.
Victoria lives with her large family in Warwickshire, also known as Shakespeare Country, only twenty minutes from Kenilworth Castle where The Queen's Secret is set. When not writing and researching, her favourite pastimes include cooking, walking, and riding.
Her Tudor paranormal series for young adult readers launches in July 2012 with Witchstruck!
