About me

  Hi!

  I’m Victoria. I write picture books and chapter books for children aged zero to eight.

 I love to write, and I love to write for children.  Some of my stories are quirky, others are issues based.  Some start with a title or a first line; others are finished and still waiting for the right title.

  I started writing as a kid, mainly mash-ups of fairy tales, written on a typewriter upstairs at mum’s work. I won my first writing prize from the Puffin  Club at the age of 10, for a limerick (now lost).

  I live in Melbourne, Australia, with my husband, two daughters, a cat and some fish.

Long before I started writing for children, I wrote for grown-ups. I still do both. My other self is Victoria Thieberger, an accomplished financial journalist. I’ve lived and worked in New York, London, Sydney and Melbourne.

My career as a correspondent and editor spans more than 25 years, including seven years in New York where I won two journalism awards. I spent 17 years as a correspondent for Reuters, the international news wire, where I reported on fun stuff like economics. My articles have been published in the world’s leading media including The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Guardian. Now I write a daily business column for Business Spectator.
