Vickianne Caswell is married and has one daughter, who has an amazing gift with animals (all animals, wild or tame seem to love her). Vickianne was raised an animal lover, in the cities of Saskatoon and Regina. She has been writing at home since she was a teenager, after her father got her interested in writing when he published a poem. She has done a few articles for a small paper on animal care and continues to experience the joys of pet ownership on an acreage where the family now lives.

Vickianne began writing again in 2012 after the quiet life and animals on an acreage inspired her and is now a proud member of the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild. She had wanted to create a set of children's stories in memory of her rabbit Freckles and the desire to teach morals that are sometimes forgotten. She published her first book in the series entitled, "Freckles the Bunny Series" in 2012. Since that time, she has published 4 more books in the series and a companion book that shares information about the real animals from the stories. Vickianne is currently on her second series as well. "Sherlock the Remarkable Cat Series," was published in January of 2014. She has won a Readers Favourite 5 Star Review Award for most of her stories.

Vickianne's children's books are based on her real pets with the same unique personalities. Many were unwanted, strays or rescues and each special in their own way. Every book in each series comes with "Fun Facts" and a "Behind the Story" at the back of every book. She is always more then happy to visit a school with Freckles III and put on a presentation/story hour for children.

Smashwords book reviews by Vickianne Caswell

  • In The Land of Rhyme on June 19, 2013

    Ray Turner's "In the Land of Rhyme" is a delight to read. The rhymes were well-written and easy to read. They easily rolled off the tongue, making it fun and the story within was entertaining. The illustrations were well-drawn and enjoyable to view. A book that will have readers reading it again and again. My husband who is not much for poetry enjoyed listening to this as well. I would recommend this book for any shelf!
  • Bear with Me on April 15, 2014

    This cute story is about a boy and his teddy bear which tells a beautiful tale about how the teddy bear's life changes as the boy grows up. For many toys as children grow up, they are well-worn, tossed out or given away. We really enjoyed this story as it showed another possibility for a teddy bear, something I have done with my daughter. I think a parent and child will have as precious a time reading this tale as the teddy bear was to the boy.
