My name is Vickie Schellert.

I’ve told 5 stories. I joined Cowbird on December 4, 2014.

In past lives I've:

- studied journalism (that ended with me walking out after cursing out the editor for cutting my piece on the new rage of 90s body modifications. Cut me some slack; I was 16)

- graduated with a degree in marine biology (I've tagged sharks and lived to tell, even if it was an experience I had to pay to enjoy and it ended up in various shades of vomit over the side of a small boat)

- attended a fundamentalist, charismatic Bible College where the President swears he is not gay even though he slept with the male youth leader

- moved abroad from yellow California to bleak London (it was meant to be for a year but 11 years later, here I am, paler than ever)

- always wished I'd have followed my dreams of being a writer (so here we go!)

I blog infrequently at and tweet even less at
