Victoria Hinshaw loves all things English and Regency; she writes about clever heroines and dashing heroes on their intriguing paths to love—that is, when she can overcome her execrable typing and lack of tech savvy. In fact, but for modern plumbing, e-readers, and internet research, she would gladly live in 1815.
Victoria binges on Jane Austen, Bridgerton, visiting British Stately Homes (when she can travel), and her secret identity as a baroness in disguise. Enjoy Victoria’s stories…and Experience the Elegance.
Hinshaw is a best-selling and award-winning author of a dozen novels and novellas, a dedicated fan of Jane Austen, and frequent speaker on Austen, The Regency, and English Country Houses.
She is an avid researcher of Georgian and Victorian British history, an enthusiastic traveler to Great Britain and the continent, and an eager, if amateur, photographer.
She wrote eight novels and three novellas first published by Kensington Zebra between 2002 and 2005, most available on Amazon Kindle. Her only non-regency is a family saga, the story of a fictional Milwaukee brewing dynasty set in 1870-1920, BirthRights: A Dangerous Brew. It was co-written with the late Reva Shovers under the pen name Summit Wahl, first published in 1983 by Pocket books, and now available on Kindle. She has written numerous novellas for various anthology publishers; all are being published by Audible in versions narrated by June deBorahae.
January 2023 will find Victoria in Naples, Florida, preparing for a trip to Italy, Portugal, and England in March and April 2023. Huzzah for traveling again. In March 2022, friend and travel planner par excellence, Kristine Hughes, and Victoria sailed from New York City (Brooklyn, to be more precise) across the North Atlantic on Cunard's Queen Mary Two, arriving in Southampton for a month abroad. Details of their adventures in England, Belgium, and France are chronicled in Victoria's Vibes.
In September, Victoria and Kristine were in London again, where plans were altered by the untimely death of Elizabeth II. However, we went ahead with our Country House Tour later in the month. Victoria then journeyed to the Jane Austen Society of North America's Annual General Meeting held in Victoria, British Columbia, where friend and collaborator Kim Wilson and Victoria were among the speakers.
