Vicki Rutherford


Vicki Rutherford joined the writing world later in life, after a business career. Writing about the oceans comes naturally to her. As a child, her grandfather's knowledge of the seas fascinated Vicki, as did his stories about sailing his sloop on Lake Superior. As an adult, she's lived near both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. She continues to enjoy learning about the seas and their mysteries.
The stories in "Sailors' Yarns & Tavern Tales" are some of the unusual happenings at sea that Vicki has collected over the years. One of them, A Ship Crewed by Skeletons, is a piece of Bermuda history that inspired her soon to be released book, "Chad of the Cobra".
Vicki Rutherford resides on Vancouver Island in British Columbia with husband Donald and daughter Susan.
