Vicki Goldie worked as a Chartered Librarian for the Royal National Institute of Blind People and then for the past 19 years in public libraries in Bournemouth and Poole. When her children were little she worked as a yoga teacher and taught stress relief as part of Occupational Therapy at her local hospital and hospice.
Born in California but brought up in England she was introduced to the Golden Age of crime authors at an early age by her mother. She is married to a blind physiotherapist, and it is from his mother, born in a large country house in Devon (now a hotel), educated by governess and with a cut glass voice like the Queen, that she absorbed real life stories about the twenties and thirties.
It is of course from her forty plus years of marriage with her husband Richard that she has gained true insights into the daily lives of working blind people.
She lives In Dorset, has 2 children and 2 grandchildren and travels as widely as possible researching future books!
