Vicky Skinner was born and raised in Texas. She doesn’t like country music or horseback-riding, but she does like her motorcycle-riding husband and her two adorable Labs. Everyone told her not to get a degree in Literature, but she did it anyway. She works as a full-time homemaker and a part-time nanny, and if she’s not at home in her office/library, she’s probably hanging out with her church group or eating at the nearest pizza place. How to Drown is her debut novel.
