About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation Author
Introduction Riley J. Froud is the pen-name of Vicky Froud. She started out writing serious stories until she realised that she just can't keep a straight face and hence, a whole bunch of Underlings were born. She refuses to give up her day-job as a retail manager in a local charity shop, so she spends her days either digging through old clothes in the shop or digging through old ideas in her head. She lives in Barry, South Wales and although she never visits the seaside, she always misses it when she goes away. She lives with her ever-patient husband who too-often plays third fiddle to the writing and the shop, and a naughty but nice dog named George. In between all that, she even finds time to read voraciously, write letters to several penpals, and create badly-made clothes on her sewing machine!
