Portia Da Costa is a multi-published British
author of romance, erotic romance and erotic fiction. Her
novels have been published by a variety of different houses,
both in the US and the UK, and translated into many languages
including German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian and Japanese.
Best known for her many novels for the pioneering British
erotica publisher Black Lace, her work has
been praised for its intense character-driven sensuality and
the vivid emotional depth. She enjoys writing books with contemporary,
paranormal and occasionally futuristic settings, but her new
great love is historical erotic romance. Long passionate about
the Victorian era, her Ladies’ Sewing Circle
stories span the late 1880s and early 1890s.
Portia has been writing for publication since 1990, and has
had over twenty novels and 100 short stories published. She
has contributed to many different short story anthologies
and women’s magazines. Following her long association
with the sadly missed Black Lace, she has now established
a new creative niche writing erotic/romantic short fiction
for Harlequin, with her first full length
historical erotic romance to follow.
In addition to her Harlequin writing, Portia is also proud
to be associated with variety of publishers including Samhain
Publishing and Carina Press.
Portia is a member of Romance Writers of America,
the Passionate Ink RWA Chapter, the Romantic
Novelists Association [UK] and the Society
of Authors [UK].
Portia lives in the heart of West Yorkshire, UK, with her husband and her cats.
When she’s not writing she can be found reading, watching TV and movies,
hanging out on Twitter, and enjoying online life in general. She was formerly
a librarian and has also worked in local government.
