Vicki was born in Summerville, South Carolina, and still lives just a few miles from where she grew up as a child, so she's a real native and loves to share her affection of the Lowcountry with people through her writing.
Even in childhood, she loved writing stories and poems--no doubt fueled by her grandfather's enthusiasm for telling tales himself. Where else--but in the South--could one find the interesting blend of salt water, eerie swamps, unwritten traditions and unique characters? Her love of literature sent her to study English at Charleston Southern University, where she received her bachelor's and master's degrees.
After teaching for years in local high schools, she left her profession to devote her time to writing. She admits that every fall, when the school bells ring, she becomes a little wistful...and twitchy.
At present, she has completed four novels, has eight projects in various stages of completion, and has around twenty-five novels outlined and ready to begin.
Though she spends much of her time writing and editing--and has a blast doing it--one of her most favorite things to do is to play with her two grandchildren, Morgan and Carder.
In her spare time, she loves spending weekends at her family's lake house, playing golf and cooking (with lots of wine).
