V. K. Sykes is a wife/husband writing teamVanessa Kelly and Randall Sykes. Together, they write romantic suspense and single title contemporary romance.
Vanessa grew up in a gorgeous New Jersey colonial town across the river from Philadelphia. After completing her master's in English literature from Rutgers, she headed north to Toronto and a PhD program, eventually working in the Canadian public sector as a researcher/writer.
Randall's heritage is in the wintry wheat fields of southern Saskatchewan. After completing his master's in labor economics, he ended up producing endless reports and speeches that honed his writing skills, but too often bored him senseless. When he finally turned his keyboard to fiction, he soon found himself immersed in the fascinating land of romance writers, almost all women. Job one was to get it through his head that romance fiction requires something called emotion to get readers to pay money to read it.
V.K. writes about favorite settingsespecially Florida and Las Vegas. Both are fertile sources of fascinating characters and situations.
