Vicky De Leo
Vicky grew up in Southern California before all the orange groves disappeared and you had to mortgage your soul to buy a piece of land. No, dinosaurs were not still roaming the earth. Her dreams came true when she fell in love with a man who lived across the street from the ocean, not that this was his only asset, He also had a surfer body and kisses that melted every bone in her body, but you can’t underestimate the seduction value of making love with the sound of waves crashing on the shore. After they married, he joined the Air Force and they moved, over and over again, never to return to California. She’s lived all over the United States and spent two years in Taiwan and three years in England.
After all the moves, wanderlust is now a permanent part of her psyche. The thrill of exploring a new city, walking in the footsteps of an ancient civilization, or exploring a museum has her booking travel plans every few months.
Working as a Human Resources Director at hotel/casinos in Las Vegas, Reno, and a five-star resort in West Virginia gave her lots of anecdotes to include in her stories, carefully disguised to protect the not so innocent.
Her books include Double Down and Jealousy, two romantic murder mysteries set at a strip resort in Las Vegas, and The Crystal’s Curse, a science fiction novel where the action takes place on earth. It mixes alien domination with time travel and a little Mayan mythology.
