Hello everyone! I am so excited to be interviewing the wonderful Victoria Lynn as part of her one year anniversary for her book, London in the Dark, today. I hope you’ll enjoy the interview and stick around for more excitement afterwards!
Hi Victoria. When did you start writing with the hope of becoming an author?
Probably about 3 years ago. I have always enjoyed writing, but didn’t much have the distinct hope of being published until I realized that was a possibility.
What is London in the Dark about?
London in the Dark is about a Private Detective in London just after the turn of the century in 1910. The story is focused around him and his sister as they seek to maneuver the mystery that is surrounding them and the life challenges that have come at them.
What inspired London in the Dark?
The idea of what it would be like if someone like Sherlock Holmes had a sister. That was the main idea. 😀
That sounds really fun. Who is the book for?
Anyone who loves historical fiction with a dash of mystery and suspense. And those who enjoy deep stories full of emotion and depth.
Sounds like something that I’d read. What do you want readers to gain from your book?
I hope that they learn that even though life can be difficult and at times, full of pain and sorrow, God is always still there in the midst of it with us. He will never leave or forsake us.
So true. Have you written any other books and where can we get them?
I have one other book aside from London in the Dark. It is a contemporary christian fiction called Bound. You can find it on amazon, here. https://amzn.to/2ITPlCN
I’m British, and I’ve always enjoyed my visits to London. Have you ever been to London before?
I have not, I have been on google street view so much though. LOL! It is my biggest hope one day to go.
If you could go back in time through history, where would you go?
Oh, that is such a hard call. I am huge history buff and love so many different eras. Probably 1910 just because that would be the most applicable. But to be honest, I am very grateful that God has me living in the time that I do.
Where can we connect with you?
You can first and foremost find me on my blog, but I also inhabit facebook and instagram under the handle @victorialynnauthor. 😀
And finally, what tips you have for young aspiring writers?
First and foremost it is to just write. Set yourself small, achievable, daily goals and make them happen. You’ll find success if you can create a habit of writing.
Thanks so much for having me on your blog! ❤
