Vikki Walton is passionate about helping others get what they really want out of life. She’s helped people launch writing careers, start businesses, pursue passions, and live their dreams. In addition to writing, she’s an engaging speaker, instructor and consultant. If that’s not enough, she’s a suburban homesteader whose bees make the best honey.
Vikki believes that life’s way too short to pursue one thing at a time! She's a Work Quilter and World Traveler. Her favorite genre is mystery and suspense so she started a backyard farming series. The first book in the series is Chicken Culprit.
