Vicki Baxter lives by the Cornish coast with her two daughters.

Following her graduation with a Leisure Management and Sports degree, Vicki has experienced a varied career as a tennis coach, prison custody officer and sales representative in the confectionery market.

Vicki works four days a week and enjoys using her day off writing, cold water sea swimming and exercising. Vicki’s previous publications include a rhyming picture and activity book called ‘Our World and Me.’ A children’s fantasy story called ‘The Hatteme Tales’ (illustrated by Caz Banks and narrated by Kate Stebbing-Allen). A book about her previous work experience called ‘Incarcerated – A Young Offender Institute Through the Eyes of an Officer,’ and a selection of poetry in various books.

Vicki’s inspiration to start writing came from composing poems for her friends at secondary school. This led to her Nan suggesting she enter one of them into a competition. ‘The Perfect Wave’ was a success and was published in a poetry collection. Writing has become a passion and something to give to her daughters as they grow up and have their own families.
