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.

Biography[edit]

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]
