Chris & Jen Sugden
Agent: Harry Illingworth
Chris and Jen Sugden are the creators of the audio drama podcast Victoriocity, a comic sci-fi detective thriller set in a reimagined Victorian past in which the city of ‘Even Greater London’ has grown to encompass the entire lower half of England. After releasing two seasons of the podcast, they are now working on a Victoriocity novel.
Both originally from Yorkshire, Chris and Jen met as undergraduates at the University of Oxford. They hold PhDs in Science and Technology Studies (Chris) and Victorian Literature (Jen), which goes some way to explaining Victoriocity (at least in part because of the mixture of books cluttering up their home). The pair were part of the writing team behind the BBC Sounds weird fiction anthology series Murmurs, and they have also spent many years writing and performing scripted and improvised comedy around the UK.
Chris and Jen live in Oxfordshire with their intermittently obedient cairn terrier, Holly.
