Midnight's Author

Vivian Zabel (aka Vivian Gilbert Zabel and V. Gilbert Zabel) started writing when a child. She told friends that someday she would write a novel, but their laughter didn’t deter her ambition.

While teaching for 27 years, she couldn’t carve enough time from her days to write a book, but she wrote poetry, short stories, and articles, which were published. After leaving teaching and entering the writing field full time, she finished two young adult and three adult novels.

A lover of mysteries since she discovered Nancy Drew, Vivian always wanted to write one. Finally, she conquered her tendency to hurry to the end, jumping over needed leads and red-herrings, and created her first suspense/thriller novel, Midnight Hours.

Vivian lives in Edmond, Oklahoma with her husband of over 46 years. Her interests, besides writing, include her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and reading.
