Meet the Author

Vivienne was born in England and was educated in Oxford. After her marriage, she moved to the United States with her husband and two daughters. After living in both Michigan and Minnesota, she currently lives in the beautiful Willamette Valley in Oregon.

While in Minnesota, she began homeschooling her daughters and started the Minnesota Homeschoolers Alliance, a statewide homeschooling network that has grown into a large non-profit organization. She wrote a number of articles and booklets on home education, coached parents and has been invited to speak at numerous state and national conferences.

After moving to Oregon, she became a speaker on domestic violence for a local women's shelter. After her divorce, she shared a house with a woman who she ultimately discovered was a heavy drug user. During those years she dealt with the daily effects of a drug user in the house. After finally realizing that she was part of the problem and not part of the solution, she made immediate changes to ensure her own personal safety. Afterwards, she started a local drug education network, working with local law enforcement and schools to educate others about drugs and their effects on both the user and the family. After two years, she wanted to expand the reach of this work so she created an educational website dedicated to the support of families of drug users. During this time, she also became a caregiver for a woman friend who was a disabled Veteran. She gained much experience dealing with the VA and learned a great deal about our Vets who also have drug addiction problems.

In her spare time, when not writing, she cares for her dogs, two of which are disabled, and her group of rescued cats. Several new books will be available soon, including a comprehensive workbook dedicated to helping those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome or PTSD, especially targeted to military personnel, and in lighter tone, a series of adventure novels.
