Hello!  My name is Vicki A. King.  After raising two children and completing a twenty year career in the financial industry, I retired to pursue a life-long dream of writing a novel.  In today’s changing world, where children often identify with unsavory characters in books, film and television, I wanted to write an uplifting, heart warming story the entire family could enjoy. My first fantasy novel, Kingdom of the Green Glass Straw, was published in May of 2011.  I hope my readers enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed the journey in writing and publishing it.






Kingdom of the Green Glass Straw

It has been nine long years since the car accident, which sent Tristabelle Kelley on a catatonic journey to the Kingdom of the Green Glass Straw. But occasionally, Trista still dreams of the Kingdom and Aunt Emma, the doting caretaker who resides there.

Letting her mind carry her back to the day she found herself standing on Aunt Emma’s porch, Trista recalls her time at the Kingdom – memories too fantastic to be real, but too vivid to simply be a dream.  Unsure of the circumstances of her arrival, Trista and her new friends soon embark on an adventure complete with fairies, trolls, a mysterious cave, an enchanted house – and, of course, the magic green glass straw.

Eventually, after Trista regains consciousness in the hospital, she learns to accept that the entire incident was induced by injuries she sustained in the crash. However, an unusual birthday gift from her grandmother shakes her to the core, sending her on a quest to investigate the Kingdom of the Green Glass Straw. Is it just a figment of her imagination, or does it really exist? And, most importantly, how does she fit into the picture as a Child from Another Time and Place?
