Victoria Christopher Murray
Victoria Christopher Murray is the author of nine Essence bestselling novels, including The Ex Files; Too Little, Too Late; and Lady Jasmine. Victoria originally self published her first novel, Temptation. "I wanted to write a book as entertaining as any book on the market, put God in the middle, and have the book still be a page-turner. I wasn't writing to any particular genre - I didn't even know Christian fiction existed. I just wanted to write about people I knew and characters I could relate to."
In 2000, Time Warner published Temptation. Temptation made numerous best sellers list and remained on the Essence bestsellers list for nine consecutive months. In 2001, Temptation was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in Outstanding Literature.
Victoria splits her time between Los Angeles and Washington D.C. She is also a member of the Long Beach Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
