About Me

My name is Vicki Scott Burns. I've been married to my high school sweetheart, Rick, for 30 years. We have three grown children and one grand-daughter.

I graduated from California State University at Northridge with a BA in English. I worked as a technical writer for IBM and Great Western Bank. I later returned to school and became an elementary school teacher, focusing on the second and third grades.

Writing has been a crucial part of my life since I was a young child. I have always loved words and the images that they create. I am a voracious reader, with a particular fondness for children's literature. At the age of 8, I shared with my father my desire to be an author. My specific dream was to write children's books. My dream was realized with the 2007 publication of my first children's book, Zamboni's Bath. What a delight it is to see my book in the hands of a child!

I also write Bible study curriculum for BibleShareware.org, Inc., which is a non-profit ministry offering high-quality Bible study free of charge. For more information, click on the Bible Study Curriculum link under Navigate This Site.

My journey has just begun. I hope to publish many books to come!

Thanks for visiting!
