All About Vivi Andrews

Vivi Andrews was born and raised in Alaska, and still lives in the Last Frontier when she isn’t bouncing around the globe. After graduating from Northwestern University, Vivi tested out a variety of careers—from the movie industry to accounting—but kept coming back to her first two loves, writing and travel. She lived in nine cities—on two continents and one tropical island—while pursuing her dream of writing romance professionally.

In 2009, Vivi won the Golden Heart Award, presented by the Romance Writers of America®, and her debut novella, The Ghost Shrink, the Accidental Gigolo & the Poltergeist Accountant, hit the digital shelves. Since then, Vivi has written and released over twenty paranormal romance novels & novellas, including the popular Serengeti Shifters series.

Vivi is currently hard at work on her next happily-ever-after. For more about her books or the life of a nomadic romance author, please visit her blog Ramblings from the Road viviandrews.blogspot.com, email vivi@viviandrews.com or stop by her website www.viviandrews.com.
