Vicki Hinze has written fourteen novels for Bantam, St. Martin's Press, Pinnacle, and Silhouette, and one nonfiction book for Spilled Candy Books. She's an active lecturer on the writing craft and the business of writing, sponsors the Aids4Writers mentoring program, and the Edna Sampson Benevolence Fund to assist writers in financial straits.
Her first book was an award-winning bestseller published in nearly a dozen foreign countries. Subsequent books have won numerous awards, including the Maggie Award for Excellence, Daphne de Maurier for Mainstream/Suspense, been nominated for Best Suspense, Best Romantic Suspense, Best Mainstream Romance of the Year. Vicki has been nominated for Career Achievement Awards and multiple Service Awards. She deeply appreciates them all, but there have been two highlights in her career that stand heads above all others.
The first came in 2000, when AP ran a front-page photo in newspapers of a soldier in Kandahar who hadn't made it home for Christmas. He was reading a copy of Vicki's ACTS OF HONOR. That day, he knew what he was doing was appreciated, that it mattered. He knew that he mattered. This is the reason Vicki writes her military books.
The second highlight came when an abuse victim phoned her unexpectedly, saying that she had lost her way due to a suicide in the family, and that in reading MAYBE THIS TIME, she had found her path again-a way she could heal and go on living.
"As a writer," Vicki says, "I discovered in those rare and privileged moments that life just doesn't get much better than this."
