Victoria Princewill

Victoria Princewill FRSA is a historical fiction novelist, whose work is driven by a desire to write forgotten intelligent African women back into our world. Born in the U.K. in 1990 and educated at Oxford and UCL with degrees in literature and philosophy, she is currently working towards a third-degree in Neuroscience. Writing for the Guardian, the London Reviews of Books, n+1, BBC News & more crystallised the extent to which her first love remains fiction. It still feels slightly impossible — as do her many other goals. But Victoria has always sought the impossible. She used to say that within the pursuit lay the art of self-mastery. Nowadays she lives in London and the closest she gets to the pursuit of the impossible (in a pandemic) is attempting to touch the sky from her balcony.
