Portia Da Costa
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 and translated into several languages. 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, and her Ladies’ Sewing Circle stories for Harlequin span the late 1880s and early 1890s Victorian age.
Portia has been writing for publication since 1990 and has had over twenty-five novels and novellas published, as well as 100+ short stories.
In 2012, her saucy, library-set erotic romance, IN TOO DEEP, reached #5 on the Sunday Times Bestsellers list, with only books by E L James and Sylvia Day outselling her.
Portia belongs to the Society of Authors and is a former committee member of the RNA.
She lives in West Yorkshire with her husband and their cats. When she’s not writing Portia can be found with her trusty camera in hand, enjoying her new creative passion for photography. She used to be a librarian and has also worked in local government.
