“Hi, my name is Vikki.”
Those were the first words I wrote on this blog. It was February of 2006 and I had no idea what I was doing and didn’t know that those words marked a new beginning.
I never imagined this blog would help me become the writer I had always wanted to be or that it would bring so many incredible people into my life.
But it did.
Since starting this blog, I have spoken on panels, read my work on stages in New York and Minneapolis and have completed one manuscript and started another.
I write about the unexpected things in life that make me think, laugh or – better yet – both.
I am Managing Editor and a regular contributor to VillageQ, a site that gives voice to the experience of LGBTQ parents. I am also co-director of Listen To Your Mother Twin Cities. In 2013, I completed the Foreword Writing Apprenticeship in Creative Nonfiction at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis and received the Beyond the Pure Fellowship for writers.
