Virginia Black, Author

Welcome to VirginiaBlackWrites!
I write lesbian/sapphic speculative/science fiction and the occasional contemporary romance. Find me on the usual socials or sign up for my monthly newsletter to find out more about what I’m up to at the moment.


VIRGINIA BLACK (she/her) is the author of NO SHELTER BUT THE STARS (sci-fi romance, 2024) and CONSECRATED GROUND (paranormal romance, 2023) — both from Bywater Books — as well as several short stories and works of fan fiction. She enjoys strong whiskey, loud music, and writing about angsty protagonists, though not necessarily in that order. When not penning dark speculative sapphic fiction, she is almost always reading or lurking on RPG sites. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wife of 21 years (and counting) and their savagely witty teenage daughter. Learn more at virginiablackwrites.com.

I am always hoping for rain.
