Vicki Tashman has always loved historical fiction. Inspiration struck 4 years ago when her daughter came home from college with 2 cats in tow. She imagined the cats belonging to Cleopatra and, wow, the stories they could tell! After researching many people in history, she settled on writing her first children's historical fiction book about Thomas Jefferson and his dog, Buzzy, “Buzzy and Thomas Move into the President's House.” It's available on Amazon in paperback and ebook.
Her 2nd book, “Dash and Victoria Find True Love” is about Queen Victoria and her dog, Dash (May, 2019). Other books in the works are about Benjamin Franklin and his squirrel Mungo and the Wright Brothers and their dog Flyer.
Vicki has a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism from the University of Colorado. She is a breast cancer survivor and had been an advocate for 10 years. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Children’s Book Writers of Los Angeles (CBW-LA), Independent Writers of Southern California (IWOSC), The Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) and the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi). She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their golden retrievers, Georgia.
