Vicki Peyton is a retired educator. While working in the public schools from 1985 to 1999, she earned two education master’s degrees. Wanting to further her career and her education, she transitioned from the public schools to the California State University system where she became a regional director for an elementary teacher preparation program. She completed her education doctorate in 2003.
Up until 2013, all of Vicki’s writing has been academic, however, once she retired, she realized that she had a desire to begin writing short fiction stories. She has been learning as much as she can by participating in a weekly writers’ workshop and taking writing courses. She hopes to publish a collection of short stories in the near future.
