About the Author

Throughout my life, I have always written, from children’s stories to poems to novels. After university I decided to focus on my writing career full-time and have gone on to become a published author. Writing is my passion, it is my escape from reality, a chance to explore my imagination and delve into different universes. The chance to share even a small part of that with others is wonderful. I am truly honoured. Sharing in this experience with others is the most exciting part!
Three years ago I decided to utilise my personal experience and medical knowledge, and formed the charity Ragdolls UK. Ragdolls aims to support children and young adults suffering from Turner’s Syndrome and other genetic disorders, and proceeds from all of my book sales are donated to Ragdolls.

Get to know Vivika Widow a little better. Torrance Studio had a little chat…

Vivika discusses her foundation Ragdolls UK with STV news and her plans for future novels.


  1. Hi, Vivika. I’m an active member of the Horror Writers Association with
    my first novel being published by an independent, Larry Czeronka
    Publishing. INK is a horror novel, coming out at the end of June,
    co-written with my writing partner, Dale Pitman. As for my background,
    I’ve been a professional screenwriter up until this point with two films directed
    by acclaimed horror director Wes Craven. Would you consider looking at an
    Advanced Review Copy? Here is the blurb:

    His studio has become his refuge and his prison – a place of boundless imagination and lonely isolation. Brian Archer, creator of a series of successful graphic novels about a vengeful supernatural being called “The Highwayman,” has become a recluse after the adoration of a female fan turned to rage and violence.

    But all that changes when he meets a renowned and beautiful illustrator, A.J. Hart, who carries emotional scars of her own. Their work together is fueled by the unrequited passion they share and a mysterious bottle of black ink that arrives one day at Brian’s doorstep.

    The impossibly dark liquid has mystical properties, making their characters appear so real they eventually come to life, reigning terror on those who mean them harm and if not stopped—threatens to unleash an apocalypse on all mankind. Brian must break free of his self-imposed exile and solve the mystery that allowed these terrible creatures into the world.

    Thanks for your consideration. All the best, Glenn Benest
