Vicki Hopkins made her debut in 2009 with the release of The Price of Innocence. Since that time she has written multiple novels in various genres – historical fiction/family sagas, Gothic romance, and Victorian romance. Her tagline is “Taking Readers Into the Romantic Past.”

In 2014, she decided to try her hand at something different and chose the pen name of Nora Covington to cross genre lines. “Romance With  Kiss of Suspense” is her new endeavor of novellas, which has been well received.

With Russian blood on her father’s side and English on her mother’s, Vicki blames her ancestors for the lethal combination of her genes that influence her stories. Tragedy and drama might be found between the pages, but she eventually gives her readers a happy ending.

Her passion, besides writing, is researching her English ancestry. To her dismay, Vicki’s DNA test results revealed that 57% of her genetic make-up originates from Eastern Europe, only 21% England, and 16% Scandinavian. Regardless of her results, she is obsessed with her English ancestors. You will find the names of her distant relatives sprinkled throughout her novels.
