I learned very early on that Vy is dedicated. One thing she always carries with her is a sketchbook. Personally, I'm lucky if I remember to bring chapstick.
When I got my hands on one of her many sketchbooks I was wowed. Vy, is a ridiculously talented artist. She puts her heart into her work. And it pays off. You can see the effort she makes.

She will be doing all the artistically inclined things on Read & Riot unless I tell you otherwise.
Even I don't know everything she has in store, but I trust her and her ability completely.

I think it's past time that I showcase Vyvyenne's talent. Don't you agree?
You can see is a one of Stacey O'Neale's dashing characters on the left. I made up my own embarrassing word that describes Rowan (pictured left), and I prefer not to repeat it. If you ask nicely I might tell you ... Or Vy will.
(If you would like to read an excerpt written by Stacey click HERE).
I always love seeing what Vy is working on, and to date have not been disappointed.
I just know her incredible talent is not going to go to waste.
I am so grateful to have met her, because now I can share her work with all of you.
A asked Vyvyenne a couple of questions so you could get to know her a little better. Funnily, I learned things too.
