Vicky Whedbee was born and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida, where she resided until her 40's when she relocated to San Mateo, Florida, where she currently resides with her husband. She wrote her first novel over a period of years as a labor of love and fulfillment of a life long dream. With a diagnosis of cancer for her dad, she decided to become an independent publisher, and published her novel on her own, in order to present a finished product to her father before his demise. She was in the process of reading said novel, "Things He Hadn't Told Her" to him at the time of his passing. She has since written her second novel, "Sarah's Song" that was a collaboration with her father, set in the time of his childhood, in the rural Appalachian mountains, with notes taken prior to his demise.

Christian Mystery Suspense
It’s the 1940’s, in rural East Tennessee, Appalachian country. For most everyone, there is only work, and possibly church, if there’s one nearby. People rise before the sun is up, work hard, go to bed early, and rest in church on Sunday. Little chance for much else to happen. Right?
So, why would keeping one little secret for over sixteen years be so important? What could possibly have happened, that could change the lives of so many people, if the secret were to be revealed?
There are only three people alive that know the answer to that question. For now.
