VICTORIA KOOPS never stopped playing make-believe and often writes while wearing a tiara. Her stories are full of epic adventure and swoony romance, and navigate social issues through the power of fandom and geek culture. Her debut novel, WHO WE ARE IN REAL LIFE, will be released February 6, 2024 from Groundwood Books.
As a practicing counsellor, Victoria writes, plays, and lives with her family in Treaty 4 Territory. Besides writing, Victoria loves to sing off-key, tease her sisters, and fool herself into believing that maybe, just maybe, she’ll choose a different romance the next time she sits down to play Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Victoria is a member in good standing of the Estevan Writer’s Group, Saskatchewan Writers Guild, and Writers’ Union of Canada. In the summers of 2016 and 2021, she attended the Sage Hill Writing Experience and completed a mentorship with Canadian author, Merilyn Simonds in 2020. So far, this writing thing has been a wild adventure, and she’s just getting started
