Victoria Howard, Romantic Novelist, Speaker, Workshop Leader

Anyone over the age of 16 who is interested in creative writing, reading, writing workshops, book groups and general discussion about literature and in particular, romantic suspense novels.


I am a retired NHS Business co-ordinator, local author and member of the Romantic Novelists' Association.

I am the author of three romantic suspense novels; The House on the Shore, (a 2009 Joan Hessayon Award finalist, and London Book Festival Honourable Mention: Fiction), Three Weeks Last Spring (a Pushcart Prize nominee), and Ring of Lies. Several of my short stories have appeared in anthologies, including the Kindle short, A Little Protection.

I am an experienced public speaker who offers talks, workshops, and presentations on various aspects of writing a novel to libraries, schools, church groups, The Womens' Instuite, the University of the 3rd Age, and similar organisations.  I occasionally hold workshops in conjunction with other authors, details of which are posted on my website.

In addition to speaking about my writing journey, the topics I speak most often include:

• Voices in my head

• How to write a novel

• I need a hero

• Creating tension in a short story or novel

• Manuscript makeover - the inner critic

• You’ve a fantastic idea… now what? - how to take your concept from brainstorm to book (PowerPoint presentation)

• Why your antagonist is the one holding your story together

Presentations include illustrative material and handouts, and are suitable for all ages.

I can also provide tailor-made presentations/workshops/talks. Please contact for further details and prices.
