More About the Author

Vicky Kaseorg, describes when she first knew she would become an author: "I used to ride my horse through the neighborhood,though all the neighbors could see was a girl on a blue bicycle.Sometimes I ended up falling off the edge of the earth, but rode to safety on the back of a friendly dragon, rising unexpectedly through the mist. My brain rarely paused in the internal narration of stories. I should have known I would either end up in an institution, or become a writer."

Kaseorg, born in Pennsylvania in 1956, studied art and writing at Binghamton University, and became a professional artist early in her career. She went on to graduate school at USC Los Angeles where she studied Occupational Therapy. She owned her own Occupational Therapy practice for many years in NY, and with the birth of her prodigiously gifted first son, began homeschooling. She has bicycled across the USA, run a marathon, completed a biathalon, learned to ski at age 50, successfully graduated two of her three children to prestigious universities, yet still feels the most difficult task she has ever had to accomplish "is living a consistent, righteous life before God and my family."

Between running a business and homeschooling, Vicky never stopped writing. Upon moving to NC, she retired from Occupational Therapy and focused on art, teaching art, and homeschooling her three children. She began writing her first book in 2009 when the rescue and rehabilitation of a homeless, hopeless, vicious dog sparked the desire to capture the story in prose.

She is the mother of three children, two now grown. She homeschooled them all from Kindergarten until graduation. The oldest, Anders, graduated from MIT. The second son, Matthias, graduated from UVa, and then law school at Washington and Lee. A 16 year old daughter, Asherel, remains at home, and is being homeschooled, taxing Vicky's abilities in highschool subjects..
"This is proof that God exists," she says, "As there is no way I could teach those on my own power."

She is the published author of I'm Listening with A Broken Ear (published July 2011), which was a top ten dog training best seller for two years on Amazon ebooks. It continues to be among the top highly rated dog training books after three years from publication. Her second book, God Drives a Tow Truck was published in February 2012 and within the first weeks of publication had 25,000 downloads. When released, it was the top best seller in the Angel category and remained in the top ten in its genre on the Amazon E-book list for several months. While clearly spiritual in nature, she wrote both books with the desire that the books be accessible to believers and non-believers. Her books are spiced with humor throughout, as she recognizes " that life is very hard. If one doesn't seek the humor in how miserable and weak we humans tend to be, we would spend most of our hours weeping. Laughter is a gift of God." Following her two non-fiction adult books, she published three illustrated books, designed for children and adults alike- Tommy: A story of Ability, The Good Parent, and The Illustrated 23rd Psalm. Turning Points- the Life of a WWII Milne Bay Gunner was published in Oct. 2012. Her sixth book, The Well Trained Human, explores the way that our canine friends mold and shape us. Saving a Dog is a sweet story, illustrated and written by Kaseorg to introduce children to the rewarding world of animal rescue and caring for creatures less fortunate than us.

Family members and friends used to chide Vicky for "seeing God in everything", when she would squeeze out a biblical message in not only the common-place events of her day, but in secular movies, books, and activities. With the rescue of the dog that led to her first book, Vicky realized that perhaps this tendency of hers was not a flaw. Perhaps it could even be used to help others find that God was indeed speaking to them...had always been speaking to them.  To this end, she also is going on her third year of writing a daily inspirational blog, which she illustrates, at vickykaseorg.blogspot.com.

She is currently at work on her latest book, while continuing to homeschool her highschool age daughter. Vicky is active in volunteer work, promoting responsible animal rescue, kayaking, bicycling, running, skiing, and art. She continues to teach art classes, and coach various teams in which her daughter is involved. She lives in Charlotte with her husband of 33 years, Arvo, along with her daughter, two dogs,and countless spiders which her daughter and she actively rescue and set free whenever possible. She is a regular contributor to converservativefifty.com , a political blog.

OH MY GOD!!! This was fantastic! I read it twice. If the title chapter isn't a Hollywood movie in the next year, I'll just poke my own eyes out. Ms Kaseorg is a once in a century author. The precision, depth, tone and tenor in her writing is exquisite. The ups and downs she takes you through, combined with a highly refined sense of humor makes this such an exceptional read. I usually shy away from books with a religious overtone but you can't help but deeply admire Ms. Kaeorg's discovery of faith and how it weaves into her everyday life. Her writing style is so honest, natural, humorous and genuine that I felt I was a part of the story. This isn't a book, it's an experience, I highly recommend it.

It is rare that I read a book of non-fiction where I don't question the validity of some of the events. Okay, let's face it, it's rare that I read non-fiction to begin with, but when I do, they are usually the biographical sort where the subjects are full of themselves or the authors are trying the justify their motives throughout their lives. However, in Vicky's book, it's clear that she has taken a huge bit of humble pie and baker is God; for this I am grateful to see that there are people in this world that can see through themselves into the heart of what it takes to be a citizen of His wondrous world. There are few situations in Vicky's books that I can't relate to in one way or the other. Her fears, doubts, loves and hopes are spilled out in such a candid way that I doubt any reader won't want to give her a big hug after reading this anthology.

As a believer and doubter myself, I read stories of miracles and chance with skepticism and woe. I sometimes revert to the scientific kind who says, "if I can't see it, it can't be true". I sometimes put all of my faith into prayer. Wishy-washy, I think that's what they call it. After reading God Drives a Tow Truck, I realized that God is there regardless of my beliefs at that time. Kaseorg says "God wisely chooses not to listen to most of my suggestions, and thus, we are to know Him by faith...This presents inestimable obstacles for people who like to be certain only of what they do see. Somehow, they can make a leap of faith that protein strands combined and suddenly became complex enough to look around and know that they were looking around, but those same folks cannot have faith that consciousness was actually designed." Perfect!

Kaseorg's book isn't all preachy and hum-drum with professions of God's miraculousness.

Vicky Kaseorg is a Christian with a sense of humor. She describes her path to faith through short story vignettes from a humble life of enlightenment featuring family, friends and work. Unexplained miracles. Impossible results. The kindness of unidentified strangers. Mysterious, but real true-life accounts of the numerous ways that the presence of God has been felt in the life of the author, leading her on her personal path to faith. Told with humor, pathos, and wit that will have even the staunchest atheists in your family, rolling with laughter, smiling with delight, and nodding with recognition. Humanity and godliness are explored in all their inexplicably intertwined moments that define both life and the great mysteries of the Unknown, in a style that is folksy, not preachy, and sure to appeal to peoples of all denominations and persuasions.

PS. Don't miss the chapter on speed skating, the most hilarious insight into perseverance ever written by the hand of God. Ooops, not really. Vicky wrote it, but it is very funny.
