Last update 9 May 2022

I’m currently writing the novella series A Place of Refuge with Kalikoi:

Telepathic warrior Talia Avi, genius engineer Miki Boudreaux, and augmented soldier Faigin Balfour fought the fascist Federated Colonies for ten years, following the charismatic dissenter Jon Churchill. Then Jon disappeared, Talia was thought dead, and Miki and Faigin struggled to take Jon’s place and stay alive. When the FC is unexpectedly upended, Talia is reunited with her friends and they are given sanctuary on the enigmatic planet Refuge. The trio of former guerillas strive to recover from lifetimes of trauma, build new lives on a planet with endless horizons, and forge tender new connections with each other.

Victoria Janssen [she, her] currently writes cozy space opera for Kalikoi. Her most recent print novel is The Duke & the Pirate Queen from Harlequin Spice, fantasy erotica including pirates, sharks, and the Island of the Lotus Eaters. It’s set in the same universe as her first novel, The Duchess, Her Maid, the Groom & Their Lover, an erotic picaresque which has been translated into French, German, and Russian.

Her major historical research interest is World War I, which is reflected in some of her fiction. Her second novel, The Moonlight Mistress, was a finalist for an RT Book Reviews Reviewers’ Choice Award. A tie-in story with a cross-dressing soldier heroine, “Under Her Uniform,” was translated into Japanese and Dutch. Short stories “The Aid Station, 1916,” “Delivery,” and “Poppies Are Not the Only Flower” also use a World War I setting.

Janssen’s short stories have been published in anthologies from Sex in the System: Stories of Erotic Futures, Technological Stimulation, and the Sensual Life of Machines to Periphery: Erotic Lesbian Futures, as well as in several volumes of The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica. Most recently, “Still Marching” appears in Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year Volume 3. Complete bibliography.

Other interests include fan fiction, fan studies, comics, choral singing, houseplants, and fighting injustice. She lives in Philadelphia and is a member of The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (formerly The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America). You can follow her on Twitter @victoriajanssen.

About the Author in French:
Victoria Janssen ne pourrait pas vivre sans livres, qu’elle dévore avec un insatiable appétit quand elle n’est pas elle-même en train d’en écrire: romances historiques, science-fiction et nouvelles érotiques, elle s’est essayée à tous les genres avec succès. Avec Leçons de plaisir, Victoria nous offre un superbe roman historique qui n’hésite à repousser les limites de l’érotisme.

About the Author in German:
Victoria Janssen hat bereits mehr als dreißig erotische Kurzgeschichten unter ihrem Pseudonym Elspeth Potter veröffentlicht. Soweit sie weiß, ist sie die einzige Autorin, die jemals eine Geschichte geschrieben hat, in der menschenfressende Schildkröten vorkommen. Die Herzogin, Ihre Zofe, Der Stallbursche Und Ihr Liebhaber, ist Victoria Janssens erster Roman. Wenn sie nicht schreibt oder liest, gibt sie Workshops über das Schreiben und Verkaufen von erotischer Literatur.

About the Author in Italian:
Victoria Janssen ci regala un esplosivo romanzo erotico che infrange ogni barriera della trasgressione. Sesso, intrigo e mistero sono i principali ingredienti di questa audace e insuperabile storia, che ci sfiora come la carezza sensuale di un amante e ci cattura come gli artigli di una lupa feroce.
