About Vanda Vadas

Before residing in Australia, Vanda’s birthplace and early childhood years were spent in Papua New Guinea. At the age of eleven, a holiday in England sparked an interest in the days of old. Castles, ruins and discovering Jane Austen novels inspired a lifelong interest in all things historical, a passion that led to the publication of her two historical fiction novels: THE PIRATE LORD (Penguin Random House Australia, a #1 Bestseller in Australia) and THE PRODIGAL LAIRD (HarperCollins Australia).

Vanda’s self-published book, TREASURED LOVE, is a collection of award-winning contemporary and historical short stories about new and life-long love.

Her locale and global visits to faraway places inspire her to create contemporary and historical characters and dramas set against authentic and geographical backdrops.

Vanda has a degree in child and adult education and has worked as a teacher of literacy and numeracy, a recruitment consultant and in the banking sector. The Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, is home to Vanda and her husband, where they enjoy walks along world-renowned beaches or a quiet getaway to the lush hills of the Hinterland.
