Vivian Oakes


Born in Ashby de la Zouch, grew up in Coalville and now live in Leicester with my husband, mother and two daughters.  I worked in administration and reporting for thirty-five years but have recently retired.  Being included in the "Life's Great Journey" anthology has been a big boost and I am going to write short stories and TRY to sell them!

Any money that I make will be used to fund my travel plans.  At the moment I haven't earned anything from writing but if I make enough money for a bus ticket to Whitwick I will let you know!
