Victoria Leybourne is an author, blogger and tea-drinker who was born in England but grew up on the internet. When she’s not writing, you can usually find her vigorously making excuses for not writing while watching animated movies, belting out showtunes and/or attempting to pet every cat within a three-mile radius.

She is the author of The Rose and the Mask: A Retelling of Beauty and the Beast; Bloody Zombies, a novella about an English teacher whose date with a colleague precipitates an uprising of the undead; and The Opposite of Popular, a well-named but otherwise poorly-thought-out blog.
