Vicki Pettersson is the author of the New York Times bestselling SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC series – a six (6) book Urban Fantasy series set in her hometown of Las Vegas, NV.
She holds a BA in English and worked for 10 years as a showgirl in the now-retired Folies Bergere.
She’s good with that though; she considers herself retired as well and passes the time as a scribbler waiting until she’s old enough to join the cast of the Palm Springs Folies (a 55 and over troupe). Once that happens, she hopes to once again fritter away her nights with sequins, eyelash glue, and her best gal pals. As she always says… everyone needs a dream! After all, you can take the girl out of the show, but you can’t take the show out of the girl.
Since she has a few years yet until she can un-retire and join the PSF, she’s now writing a new supernatural noir trilogy, also set in Vegas, but with an entirely new world and cast of characters. It features a supernatural private-eye and a rockabilly reporter with a nose for trouble. The CELESTIAL BLUES series debuted with “The Taken”, on 7/12/12.
Vicki divides her time between her family in Vegas and Dallas.
