Vicki Pettersson is an American author known for her Signs of the Zodiac urban fantasy series and "Celestial Blues" trilogy, both set in modern day Las Vegas. The Zodiac series follows casino heiress Joanna Archer, who discovers on her 25th birthday that she has superpowers.[2] The Celestial Blues features a P.I. angel and a rockabilly reporter who join forces to fight crime in a noir/paranormal hybrid fiction.[3] As of 2013, she is actively writing straight thrillers.


Pettersson was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada and was a showgirl for “Les Folies Bergere” for 10 years at the Tropicana before giving up show business to be a mother and author.[4][5]

Pettersson chose Las Vegas as the setting for her Zodiac series because she says, "it's the best possible place in the world for strange characters, and because I know it well."[6][7]
