Vicki Hinze has written nearly thirty novels for Dell Publishing Group (Waterbrook-Multnomah and Bantam), Bell Bridge Books, St. Martin's Press, Pinnacle, Harlequin and Silhouette, Medallion Press, her own imprint, Magnolia Leaf Press, and four nonfiction books for Spilled Candy Traditional and Magnolia Leaf Press. She's an active lecturer on the writing craft and the business of writing, sponsors the Writers' Zone mentoring program, and the Edna Sampson Benevolence Fund to assist writers in financial straits. She maintains a free library for writers, On Writing, on her website.

Her first book was an award-winning bestseller published in nearly a dozen foreign countries. Subsequent books have won numerous awards, including the Maggie Award for Excellence, Daphne de Maurier for Mainstream/Suspense, been nominated for multiple RITA® Awards and awards for Best Suspense, Best Romantic Suspense, Best Mainstream, Best Science Fiction and Best Action/Adventure Best Romance of the Year and Best Faith-Affirming Thriller of the Year. Vicki has been nominated for multiple Career Achievement Awards and Service Awards. She deeply appreciates them all, but there have been two highlights in her career that stand heads above all others.

The first came in 2000, when AP ran a front-page photo in newspapers of a soldier in Kandahar who hadn't made it home for Christmas. He was reading a copy of Vicki's ACTS OF HONOR. That day, he knew what he was doing was appreciated, that it mattered. He knew that he mattered. This is the reason Vicki writes her military books.

The second highlight came when an abuse victim phoned her unexpectedly, saying that she had lost her way due to a suicide in the family and that in reading MAYBE THIS TIME she had found her path again-a way she could heal and go on living.

"As a writer," Vicki says, "I discovered in those rare and privileged moments that life just doesn't get much better than this."
