Every Book by V.C. Andrews, In Order

It’s been said that much of her real life was just as tragic as the lives of the protagonists in her debut novel Flowers in the Attic. 

vc andrews books in order ebb feb 2024

The author V.C. Andrews was born Cleo “Virginia” Andrews in Portsmouth, Virginia, in 1923. She was the only girl to her WWI vet father, William, telephone operator mother, Lillian, and two brothers (one older, one younger). Though she very quickly became a renowned author upon the debut of her first novel, Andrews was originally an artist. 

She loved classic gothic romances and fairy tales from the very beginning, and with her active imagination, began to draw and paint. In fact, her second grade teacher found her to be so talented that she sent Andrews to junior college for art lessons when she was just seven years old. 

But when she was 17, Andrews fell down a flight of stairs, confining her to crutches and a wheelchair for the rest of her life. Her mother, embarrassed by her now-disabled child, kept her cooped up in their house so as to hide her from the neighbors. And it only worsened when Andrews’ father died—her mother monitored her visitors, did all her shopping, and scarcely let her leave the house. 

Eventually she started writing stories, all of which contained salacious themes. 

Was Flowers in the Attic a true story?

Flowers in the Attic was actually a combination of true stories, a mix of her own personal experiences, and the personal experience of a doctor she’d grown close to when getting surgery done on her back. Andrews said that she not only wrote the tale in just two weeks, but reliving all the suffering through the writing of it caused her to lose 12 pounds. 

The book gained instant popularity, despite being banned in many places due to its mature themes. Though her mother continued to hover over her at book signings, press events, and even in the home Andrews bought for them before her passing, she did attempt to compensate for the 40 years of lost time she suffered being locked away from the world. 

How many books did V.C. Andrews write before she died?

Of the many books published in her name, only eight were written by her before she died in 1986. Seven were published during her lifetime, making up the Dollanger, Audrina and Casteel Family series, while Gods of Green Mountain was published posthumously in 2004. 

But Andrew Neiderman, the ghostwriter her family hired to continue her legacy at the time of her death, finished two of her works and since has written much more, with no plans to slow down, as you can see below.

Dollanganger Series


The longest and most famous of VC Andrews’ series, the Dollanganger series starts off with her best-known and most-loved work, Flowers in the Attic. Now an 11-book series, Flowers in the Attic starts the series off with the story of four children whose mother forces them to live in an attic as she attempts to get back into her wealthy family’s good graces. The gothic and salacious story we know it to be, terrible things happen to the children in the attic, and the courses of their lives change forever. 

The rest of the series includes details of their lives after they escape, the stories of their children, the origin story of their grandmother, and versions of the childrens’ story from different points of view.
