Vivienne Dockerty


I was born on the Wirral in 1947 and attended Wirral Grammar School until I was 17. I had a Saturday job at Heswall Library and my love of books was encouraged from an early age. My father inspired me to write my stories, having listened in my childhood about the lives of my ancestors who had come over from Ireland during the Famine years. I have written eleven titles, nine are available in paperback and two as ebooks only.
