Victoria Turnbull was born in York, and spent her childhood absorbed by books and drawing. She went on to study for an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art and in 2013, won the Association of Illustrators New Talent Award in the Children’s Book category. Victoria now lives in East London, where she both writes and illustrates her own stories.
Victoria’s debut picture book, The Sea Tiger, was published by Templar in June 2014. The Sea Tiger was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, 2015. Victoria had two new picture books out in 2016. Kings of the Castle was published by Templar in May, and Pandora was published by Frances Lincoln Children’s Books in November.
