She would get into writing later in her life penning “Gods of Green Mountain”, a science fiction novel that came out as an eBook in 2004 having never been formally published. Completing a draft for “Flowers In The Attic” in 1975, the publishers returned it to her with the suggestion to expand and spice up the story. The novel was eventually published in 1979 to instant success going on to top most of the bestseller lists. V.C. published about a book every year a factor that led to increasing appreciation of her work until her death. She has several standalone novels, short stories and series that for the most part are a combination of family saga about family secrets, gothic horrors, and forbidden love. After her death in 1986, Andrew Neiderman took up the writing of the series, and has gone on to write more than 70 of the titles attributed to V.C. Andrews.


Several of the V.C. Andrews novels have been adapted into psychological horror films. Her debut novel “Flowers in the Attic” was made into a movie by the same name in 1987 and a Lifetime movie in 2014. “Rain” is a 2006 movie from the novel by the same name written by the guest author Andrew Neiderman. “Petals in the Wind” from the same novel title that is a follow-up to “Flowers in the Attic”, aired on Lifetime in 2014, and was a highly popular movie. The movies “If There be Thorns” and “Seeds of Yesterday”, both adapted by Lifetime from the novels by the same names premiered in 2015, and attained much commercial success.


Three of the VC Andrews series of novels are the most popular. These are:

Garden of Shadows: The prequel, the novel introduces a young, hopeful, and innocent girl – Olivia. After getting married to the handsome Malcolm, the young Olivia has just come to Foxworth where she hopes that she can now hope to be happy. But in the old and gloomy mansion that is their home, forbidden passions, festering desires, and unbridled jealousy obsession threaten their children. While the house has a tranquil façade, what outsiders do not know is that the house harbors a shocking secret. It is a secret that is likely to taint the reputation of the Foxworth household, and that of their children for decades in the future.

Flowers in the Attic: The debut novel in the series is a titillating narrative full of terror and agonizing pain. A mother wants to keep her three children a secret from her dying father, who would certainly disown her and cut her off from her inheritance if he knew she had illegitimate children. Hoping her father will die soon, she hides her children in the attic, but the old man does not die, and what was supposed to be a few weeks turns into agonizing years. Now the children wait in a cramped attic surviving on a meager sustenance provided by a mean grandmother, even as they are consumed by adult desires and stirred by adult fantasies that descend into incest.

Petals on the Wind: the second novel in the Dollanganger series of novels is a tale of dark horror that is manifest in the lives of children Cathy, Chris, and Carrie. After escaping the attic in the first novel in the series, the children fall into the hands of a mean mother and an even meaner grandmother. But while the first novel was out of this world, this novel takes it even further with brother and sister falling in love, and a girl falling in love with her stepfather that leads to a romantic relationship. V.C Andrews is an excellent writer who thrives in the art of creating family drama and “Petals in the Wind’ does not disappoint. It is sure to get you hooked right to the very end.

  1. I lost “Interest” in my favorite Author, after her death. (Ghost Writer) I didn’t/don’t like, but I miss reading my books.
    I will “try” to give this new ghost writer another shot. No promises.
