V. L. Dillon


Vicki enjoys photography and writing fictional stories. She also likes writing music, laughing and writing poetry. A normal day for Vicki is to get up and go somewhere public and watch people as they walk, talk, laugh and use their facial expressions. She also loves to go and talk to perfect strangers and learn about their lives. She has a wild imagination and you never know what her next book will be about. So keep an eye peeled for the next journey she wants to take you on.
Her writing style is descriptive words, so that you visualize where she is taking you in the book, not just reading it - you are part of the adventure, not just a bystander.
She also loves to encourage others to write. It releases the clutter in the brain and makes room for more.

Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
The fans are everything. Without them I am nothing. The reason I write is for them, to entertain them and give them something to enjoy. A way for my fans to escape the pains and stress of everyday life. To escape their lives and be someone else and be somewhere else. It's all for them....my wonderful, loving fans. I love them and thank them.
What is your writing process?
I come up with a mental outline. Then, I dig up characters for a few days: Names, individual characteristics and then what part they play in the story. That is when the story starts taking shape. Then if there are any conflicts in characters, I embed that into the conflicts of the story. All characters help each other to evolve and or go somewhere - such as the twist in most of my stories. The rest pretty much falls together.
