Victoria Gosling grew up on a farm in Wiltshire, studied English Literature at the universities of Manchester and Amsterdam, and has lived in London, Australia, Brazil and the Czech Republic. In 2011 she was shortlisted for the Mslexia Unpublished Novel Prize.
Victoria is the founder of The Reader Berlin, a vehicle for literary adventures that has seen her leading writing workshops across Europe, throwing a literary festival in an abandoned fort, hosting Berlin salon nights and writers’ retreats in Greece and Italy, as well as providing a raft of author services. In partnership with The Circus Hotel and The British Council, she also organises The Berlin Writing Prize. These days, she divides her time between Wiltshire and Berlin.
Victoria’s debut novel, BEFORE THE RUINS, was published by Profile Books UK in May 2021. Her second novel, BLISS & BLUNDER was published by Profile Books UK in August 2023.
