Vickie Adams

Alumna Feature

Vickie Adams recently published her first novel titled “The Source of Smoke.” The author focused on writing during the pandemic and self-published under the name V.L. Adams.

The novel is a mystery about a woman who begins to question whether her sister was murdered by her boyfriend, the person who was tried and convicted of the crime.

Adams earned a degree in photojournalism from Central. After graduating, she took the LSAT on a whim and ended up going to law school. She practiced law for a few years before working at a nonprofit organization that focuses on providing continued education for lawyers and law enforcement. Through her work with the nonprofit, Adams became interested in the issue of wrongful conviction, which influenced her writing.
