Hi! I’m Vicky Daddo and I live in Hazelwood South, in the Latrobe Valley, Victoria. I write. A lot! I write short fiction and novels as well as fanfiction under a pseudonym.
My stories have appeared in The Big Issue Fiction Special, Award Winning Australian Writing, Women’s Day, That’s Life and other anthologies. I have won or been placed in many competitions including the Hope Prize, the Scarlet Stilettos and the FAW National Literary Awards.
In 2018, I received a women’s writing scholarship through The Hope Prize.
I am a Writers Victoria Regional Ambassador for Gippsland and President of the Gippsland Writers Group. I teach Introduction to Fiction at the Warragul Community House and program the Latrobe City Literary Festival.
Outside of writing I enjoy reading, watching the X Files, listening to music, walking and eating dark chocolate. I am a mother of four and work in local government. I have an enduring love for Doris Day and Duran Duran. I love animals and have two dogs, a cat and ten alpacas. I love the ocean.
