Author: Vicki Stiefel

Vicki taught fiction writing and modern media writing at Clark University.

She loves both a well-crafted sentence and unlocking the doors of a student’s imagination.

She grew up in professional theater and planned to become an actress, with a bent for song and dance. She didn't. Instead, she’s been a photographer, a high-school teacher, a hamburger slinger, a scuba-shop manager, and an editor.

She’s Blake's and Ben's mom, her favorite role of all.

Her passions include writing, knitting, scuba diving, and fly fishing; photography and movies; vinho verde and bourbon (not together!); Maine lobster and chocolate (also not together!); and musical comedy scores, which she sing in the shower, unfortunately not an Equity venue; and a fascination with people in all walks of life.

She reads voraciously. Ditto for the writing.
