An author with a wicked sense of humor is how you can described Vivienne Diane Neal, the new author on the block.
Born in 1946, Vivienne has been writing articles for over twenty years, and started writing fictional short stories in 2007. She gets her story ideas from observing people, places and things and watching true TV court cases.
While she has never taken a course in creative writing, she contributes her love for writing to her college professor who taught English and stressed applying proper sentence structure when writing. In fact Vivienne will tell you , “I did not learn how to write until I went to college.”
Her first book, Making Dollar$ And Cent$ Out Of Online Dating is a true -life and humorous account as to why and how she got into the dating business and the problems she has encountered and still does while trying to keep afloat in the ever-changing world of the Internet dating business.
In 2009, she authored and self-published her second book, Shades of Deception, a collection of ten fictional short stories centering on diverse men and women, who in their speedy search for love, romance and bliss, become the targets and victims of deceit, betrayal, fraud, revenge and scandal.
She has just completed her third book Malicious Acts, an anthology of five short stories that centers on people who will stop at nothing to get what they want. If it means disguising themselves as benevolent individuals and destroying lives along the way, they are up for the thrill. They will use romance, lust, greed, manipulation, and deceit as preludes to suck unsuspecting men and women out of their life’s savings.
Wicked Intent, her fourth book, is a fictional short story about a successful businessman who is planning to marry his self-centered fiancée, but he is sidetracked by a beautiful stranger who will brings lust, desire and eroticism into his life, but will ultimately destroy his relationship with the one person who has always stood by him. The book is set for release in spring 2012.
Vivienne has been featured on SingleEdition, Black Love is Beautiful, A Book Inside, and Susan Whitfield’s Blog and was a guest blogger on Cluculzwriter.
Now, semi-retired, she continues to write short stores and articles on love, romance, relationships and other topics of interest and manages a weekly Blog called One World Singles Magazine Blog which includes informative and entertaining articles and advice on dating, romance, love, relationships, featured authors, interviews, virtual book tours, news and so much more.
