About Kenneth Vickery

Kenneth R Vickery loves to create outlandish characters and put them in bizarre situations, to see what happens. It is part of his joy of storytelling. It often lets him embrace social issues from a new and humorous perspective.
He doesn’t like to stick to a literary genre. His characters have driven stories that are thrillers, sea changes, ghost stories and science fiction. He admits he is a bit of a tart. These stories contrast, love, loyalty, and kindness, with greed, anger, and hatred. He hopes that this will expose the lazy bigotry that can mar our society.
His female characters, always get a lot stronger than first envisioned, sometimes taking over the whole story. There are often strong father-daughter themes. He can’t explain why, but when he seeks warm and witty characters, it just happens.
Kenneth retired from the mental health field to concentrate on his writing in 2017. He has been working on his writing for over twenty years and recommends writing groups and book clubs. He also reads many books, now using audiobooks due to his failing eyesight.
Kenneth lives in Perth, Western Australia, with his wife. They have two adult sons.

From Lark Westerley
Poppy is such an unusual book it almost defies genres. If I say it's about police corruption, a good cop whose reputation is at stake, a teenaged dealer, a Polish convict, racial tension, murder, and revenge I'd be telling the truth, but that description gives a distorted picture of the warm, witty, character-driven confection that is Poppy. The novel is packed with rich characters and shrewd observation on human behaviour. There are scenes of lyrical beauty, some black humour (you'll never be able to listen to Gilbert and Sullivan in quite the same way again) unexpected friendships and love in even more unexpected guises. If you love detailed, complex plots peopled with eccentric characters, give Poppy a try. And the next time a pretty teenager offers to teach you a song from G&S - RUN.
