More About the Author

Writing runs strongly in Victoria Corby's genes. Her grandfather was a historian, biographer and poet, her grandmother a novelist who won the Church Missionary Society Prize for her very proper novel Beryl In India, her mother wrote magazine articles and social pages for Tatler, and her aunt wrote biographies of long dead racehorses.
Victoria's first book was written when she was seven and was about a mouse that went to the Moon, she went through a period of plagiarising Georgette Heyer before publishing a genre novel which she'd rather forget about. Something Stupid, her first published mainstream novel was written to amuse herself and she's continued to write what she enjoys reading.
Victoria is a Times bestselling author and is in the middle of updating all her books for Kindle while also writing a novel set in France.
Victoria has lived in Australia where she was the first woman employed to sell meat direct to butchers in the State of Victoria (she didn't last for long), Hong Kong where she fell into being Assistant Editor on the Hong Kong Tatler and has lived in France for nearly twenty years.

I loved this story of a holiday that doesn't go as planned. It gallops along at a tremendous pace - Corby has got a lovely light touch and is very funny in places and she 'does' France rather better than some more well known names. I just loved the cricket match in the middle of the vines! Very good indeed - reccomended.

One of the things I love best about Victoria Corby's novels is that she creates wonderfully likeable, self-deprecating, sympathetic heroines, and then catapults them into a series of hilarious misadventures. In Up to No Good, the heroine Nella is on a week's vacation with friends among the vineyards of south-west France and gets embroiled with stolen paintings, ex-boyfriends, the housemate from hell, and ... well, you have to read the rest for yourself. You're in for quite a treat. I just wish Victoria would produce her books a lot faster--there is no one who writes chick books any better!

OK, so Victoria Corby isn't going to turn out heavy-duty meaningful Literature with a capital L. But she writes such witty and smart romantic comedy that it's difficult to consign her work to the Romance Ghetto. Up to No Good is really very clever and entertaining. Oh, there's very little mystery as to who Nella ends up with, but there are the usual Corby twists and turns to keep you guessing as to how she'll end up with Mr Right. Well done and worth the time - and by all means, read her other books if you haven't!
