Even as a child A.M. Vivian was drawn to the tragic and darker side of human nature. The Spanish inquisition, historical diseases, and Jack the Ripper were early topics of interest. As she’s aged she’s become fascinated by dying civilisations, gothic motifs, the Old Testament, and Jungian psychology. Intrigued by fellow loners and misfits, she likes to explore why we do what we do, how and why we lie to ourselves, and whether there’s such a thing as truth. All with a touch of operatic drama.
In her spare time she can found soaking up the wails of a guitar at the front row of gigs or stumbling through dark city streets singing to herself and pretending she owns the night.

Work In Progress
Where to start? There is a first draft of Ammi’s story marinating, a rewrite of a companion novel for The Family Care that’s being allowed to heal before I take the editing tools to it again, and an eclectic collection of short stories & poems that needs sorting into a pleasing order.
I’ve now set up a mailing list (click any of the buttons on this page) so that people can get access to exclusive book related content, updates on new projects, sign up for the chance to act as advance readers, and other goodies. I’m working on that first newsletter now along with a free book.
Work in Progress
The Family Care is now with my editor.
I can’t wait to have this novel out in the world. I’ve been working on it for over 20 years in one way or another.
Time to get on with writing the sequel. Wish me luck.
