Hi, I’m Vikkie and I’m an Author, Writer and Journalist (with a BA Hons degree in English & Journalism if you want to get technical).
I love writing, it’s what I do but what you might not know is that I left a 10 year career in Fashion Retail Management so I could spend more time with my fiance, dog and hopefully one day start a family. But what does retail have anything to do with writing? Well, let me tell you. Apart from the obvious crunching numbers, it’s also given me foresight of what is newsworthy and marketable while working on a project.
I’ve written umpteen press releases for ad campaigns and businesses and have been featured in numerous newspapers and magazines. I’m also a chatty one too and have been a guest speaker on radio and TV, alongside public speaking for audiences of up to 250.
Here’s a photo of me on the right, about to compère for a charity Fashion Show with Afternoon Tea at the Henley-in-Arden Golf Club. (I’m meeting with the Chairman of the MS Society and the Former Mayor of Solihull, Irene Chamberlain).
But once my glad rags are off, you will most likely find me cosied up at home or tucked away in my kitchen, developing new healthy recipes to feature the best ones on my blog and YouTube Cooking Channel.
Also, since starting my food blog in 2015, my recipes have been widely spread though social media by people, word of mouth and brands, such as Denby, and more recently in an appearance in the Coop Magazine. And in May 2016, I became a self published author which stayed in the Top 10 selling Kindle cookbooks for a week called, Tastefully Vikkie Soup Maker Recipes: 65 Low Fat Bowls of Health. I’m pretty proud of that claim.
So if you’re a brand or publication looking for a copywriter who knows her features and benefits, then I’d love to hear from you. I am also available for the following:
- Freelance work
- Feature article writing
- Recipe developing
- Hosting and public speaking
If you would like to be featured on my blog or YouTube channel, I am also available for:
- Healthy recipe developing
- Restaurant reviews
- Reviews related to healthy living: (Note they will always be tactfully honest and my own opinion)
- Unboxing videos
- Demonstrations & Tutorials
- Dog Friendly Holiday & Travelling content such as our camping & campervan vlogs
- Dog related product reviews, such as my popular Tropiclean Teeth Cleaning trial video on my 2nd YouTube channel.
If you require a media kit or would like to discuss anything, then please feel free to get in to get in touch.
