Victoria Johns is a Cheshire based writer with a wild imagination for steamy stories, she believes it’s every girl’s dream to experience a happily ever after. Realising it was time to live her own fairy tale, she now enjoys day dreaming and creating fiery romance novels. When she’s not doing that, she can be found spending time with her family, cycling the countryside or enjoying pink fizz with her friends.
I live in the midst of Cheshire’s farming community, where pretty craft markets and food festivals are always a good reason to go out and enjoy the local history and amazing building. Nantwich is a great location, you’re always only an hour away from something beautiful, be it hills, the coast or a fantastic city. I was born in Staffordshire and raised in Cheshire, so I have lots of family local.
Q. If you had a choice where would you choose to live, and why?
I love the mountains! We spend a lot of time visiting places of natural beauty and I adore the Europe mountain villages of France and Switzerland. The pace and lifestyle seems to suit all, I think it would be an amazing place to raise kids too. The fact that you get to experience all the seasons is just amazing and you get to really feel them as they change, they don’t bleed into one another, they somehow feel more dramatic. It reminds you of how beautiful the world can be and how small we really are. Next to a snow capped mountain, you realise your place in the world. Taking my kindle, a pad and a pen to sit in the mountains is my idea of heaven.
Q. Have any places you’ve visited been the inspiration for a book?
Not so much a place, but the feeling you get when you visit somewhere. My books are based on fictional ideals that I have about a small knit community. I wanted to create the feeling that no matter where you are, there will always drama, but it’s the people around you that make it bearable. It’s the place where you call home that makes you smile and feel lucky to be there. Other than that, there is usually a mountain, a coffee shop and somewhere to get a beer!
Q. How important do you think the setting is when you write a story?
Vital! You need to connect with the reader, if it’s not somewhere real you have to give them enough to create that place in their imagination. The fact that every person will imagine something slightly different is amazing. It’s the ability to inspire someone to travel to somewhere you’ve created.
Q. Survivor is set in fictional Rockton, USA what made you choose this as the setting for your book?
There is a real Rockton, it sounds as idyllic as mine. So essentially I created the setting, the shops and surroundings before giving it a name.
Q. What’s your idea of a perfect day?
It involves my kindle, a comfy chair to slouch in, a large bag of salt and vinegar crisps and a bottle of Prosecco. I’d be in the same place as my family and they’d be having fun kicking a football around or cycling through a forest. I love the idea that we can go somewhere together but enjoy our own ideas of bliss... then get fat and full on a lovely picnic!
