Victoria Cornwall grew up on a farm in Cornwall and can trace her Cornish roots as far back as the 18th century. It is this background and heritage which is the inspiration for her Cornish based novels.

Following a fulfilling twenty-five year career as a nurse, a change in profession finally allowed her the time to write. She initially self-published two novels, Old Sins Long Shadows and The Gossamer Trail under the name B.D.Hawkey. In 2016, award winning publisher, Choc Lit, acquired both novels as part of a four book deal. Old Sins Long Shadows is now published under a new title, The Captain's Daughter, and The Gossamer Trail has been released under the new title The Daughter of River Valley.

I loved Demelza's inner strength and how, over time, she adapted from her humble beginnings to be a perfect match for Ross. Together, they made a formidable team, yet they were both imperfect. She was a steadying force for him, he inspired her to rise above her station in life. They both have character flaws, perhaps Ross more than Demelza, but sometimes the imperfections of a character make them perfect fictional characters to fall in love with.(less)

Lock down: At home with Victoria Cornwall

As a writer of historical fiction, I never imagined I would be part of an epic, historical (and devastating) event that would change the lives of nearly everyone on the planet. The Corona virus global pandemic has taken us all by surprise. There are many who will say that we should have saw it coming, however I never envisaged everyone in the UK would be distancing ourselves from their friends, fa
