Meet Children's Author, Vikki Ford






I am thrilled to host day one for Children's author Vikki Ford:


Welcome to day one of Vikki Ford’s 6-day NWFCC April Author Showcase tour. Enjoy your time with Ms. Ford as she provides a glimpse into her creative world.

For years I always wanted to write but never knew how. One day I was studying at Delphi University and I went into a deep meditation. Upon finishing the meditation, I had completed Angel Anya’s Adventures: Angel Anya’s Magic Heart. I suppose you can call that an inspired book from Spirit!

I wanted my family to be a part of this unique spiritual adventure so I utilized both my mother, Mary D. Ford and my daughter Anya’s incredible artistic talents. It is a three generational project of love and heart. Anya’s grandmother is in her 80’s and Anya is just 11.

We all worked on the book with my direction that I wanted the illustrations to look like a child had painted all of the photos. My mother is a gifted artist so she was able to do this along with my gifted daughter.

As a licensed Georgia attorney who has represented children in abuse and neglect cases and as the mother of two beautiful children, one an easy birth and one from the tummy birth, I felt the need to let children know that loves comes from within. They can have love no matter their circumstance.

Children are our gifts and we need to share with them that love gives them their value and their self worth. Regardless of whether they are in foster care, have separated family lives or have the greatest families in the world; they are love.

This book can be read by and shared with people of all religions and those who are spiritual in nature. One needs to know about love and this book helps to open up the magic within each child through their own individual love.

It is written for very young children and my daughter still enjoyed it at 11.

It also opens up the care and love for our animals, those creatures who cannot speak as we do but truly know how to communicate. Our children have these gifts and they need to know that they truly are unique and beautiful just as they are.

A portion of the book profits go to Maps Adoption Agency for they help children from Russia and American find beautiful homes.

My daughter Anya inspired me to write this book because of her heartfelt love for others even though her life started out not so joyously.

I want to write more adventures and eventually would love to have one of the books be about Angel Anya’s Adventures in Russia, a story of adoption. It would be sent to Russian children in their spoken language. Spirit will have to provide for this project I’m sure!
