She has a diploma in Journalism, as well as a BA in English and Ethnology, writing her MA thesis in Ethnology about oral tradition and storytelling.

Vilborg worked as a journalist and a reporter in various media from 1985 to 2000. She has since dedicated herself to writing. Her first novel, Við Urðarbrunn, (By Urd's Well) was published in 1993 and a sequel, Nornadómur (Judgement of the Norns) in 1994.

These tell the story of a young slave woman in 9th century Iceland, the daughter of a Norwegian chieftain settler and his Irish slave, and her pursuit for freedom. The story is set in Iceland, Scandinavia and the Scottish Isles. Við Urðarbrunn was awarded by the Icelandic section of IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People) in 1994, and a year later, the sequel, Nornadómur, received the Reykjavík School Council Award.

In 2001 the books were published in a single volume titled Korku saga. Both novels have enjoyed great popularity in all age groups and have been widely read in secondary schools, ever since the first publication more than twenty years ago. Vilborg's third book, Eldfórnin (1997) is a historical novel set in the 14th century, and takes place in the nunnery at Kirkjubaer in South Iceland.

The events of Vilborg's fourth novel, Galdur (2000) are also based on historical events, this time in the 15th century, in Skagafjörður in North Iceland, when Englishmen dominated the trade and were highly influental in Iceland. Sources describing the lives of the Inuit and the Norse inhabiting Greenland in the middle 15th century provide the background for Vilborg's fifth novel, Hrafninn (2005). The story touches on the mysterious disappearance of the settlements started in Greenland by Icelandic settlers around the year 1000.

Hrafninn was nominated for the Icelandic Literature Prize. Auður (2009), Vilborg's sixth novel, tells the story of the only Viking woman known to have led her own independent settlement expedition to Iceland. Audur the Deepminded was married to the first Viking king of Dublin in Ireland and set sail from the British Isles to Iceland where she settled in the west of the country, setting her slaves free.

Auður was also nominated for the Icelandic Literature Prize. A sequel to Auður, Vígroði (Crimson Skies) was published in 2012. Vilborg's latest book, Ástin, drekinn og dauðinn (On Love, Dragons and Dying) was published in 2015.

Here, she tells the story of her husband's journey with terminal brain cancer, "the Dragon", and her first year as a widow following his death in 2013. The book has been highly acclaimed, especially for dealing with the death of a loved one and grief in a moving yet realistic way, as well as encouraging the reader to live mindfully, whatever happens, and accept death as a natural part of life. Við Urðarbrunn (By Urd's Well) and Nornadómur (Norn's Judgement) were published in Faeroese translation in 2003 and 2004.

Eldfórnin (Das Feueropfer), Galdur (Der Liebeszauber) and Hrafninn (Die Winterfrau) were published in German translation by Bertelsmann btb, in 2003, 2004 and 2011 respectively. Galdur was published in English in 2012, titled On the Cold Coasts, by AmazonCrossing. Vilborg Davíðsdóttir lives in Reykjavík.

She has three children. Publisher: Mál og menning (imprint of Forlagið)
