Vicky Jones was born in Essex, England. She is an author and singer-songwriter, with numerous examples of her work on iTunes and YouTube. At 20 years old she entered the Royal Navy. After leaving the Navy realising she was drifting through life with no sense of direction, she wrote a bucket list of 300 things to achieve which took her traveling, facing her fears and going for her dreams. At the time of printing, she is two-thirds of the way through her bucket list.
One item on her list was to write a song for a cause. Her anti-bullying track called “House of Cards” is now on iTunes to download. Writing a novel was on her bucket list, and through a chance writing competition at her local writing group, the idea for ‘Meet Me at 10’ was born. Vicky hopes she can change hearts and minds due to some of the gritty themes of the book. Vicky is a keen traveler, stemming from her days traveling the world in the Royal Navy, and has visited around 50 countries so far. She has also graduated from The Open University after studying part time for her degree in psychology and criminology–another bucket list tick! She is currently writing a book about her bucket list adventures, entitled ‘Project Me, Project You’, alongside planning and writing more fiction books and book marketing guides for self-published authors. She now lives in Cheshire, splitting her time between there and visiting her family and friends back in Essex
Best selling co-author of ‘Meet Me At 10’. Claire Hackney is a former English Literature, Drama and Media Studies teacher who, after attending a local writing group with Vicky and writing several of her own short stories, has now decided to focus her career on full-time novel writing.
She is an avid historian and has thoroughly enjoyed researching different aspects of the 1950s for the ‘Shona Jackson’ trilogy of novels.
Claire is very much looking forward getting started on the many future writing projects she and Vicky have in the pipeline, including the up-coming ‘D.I Rachel Morrison’ thriller series and several standalone novels.
