Hi, I’m Vicky Quinn Fraser, writer, storyteller, book coach, and performer.
Every day, I bring the magic of books to the world by helping the most incredible misfits to hear and trust their own voice…
Which is how the most weird + wonderful books are born—and released into the wild, where they go about their business making people think, changing hearts and minds, and showing the world a new story.
Because I know you have a story inside that’s worth telling. That will make someone, somewhere, glad you spoke up. I know you can write a magnificent weird + wonderful book that’ll set someone’s world alight—a book that’s far, far more than just another business book nobody will really read anyway.
You can use your voice to write a book that looks deep into the souls of people ready to hear your message, yanks on their feelings, and pushes them to make a change.
Crystallise your message + mission + vision + distinctive *you-ness* in a book that will become the beating heart of your business.
Release it into the world where it can bring the kind of people you long to work with right to your door, so you can stop chasing them down.
Since 2012, I’ve helped dozens of writers hear and trust their voice, find the confidence to tell their stories, and create books that have changed people’s lives. Now it’s your turn.
But wait—where did all this come from, exactly?
Here’s my story.
I’ve been obsessed with books since the moment my mum put a book into my hands aged around 2
Every birthday and Christmas gift was a book token, and every trip out went via a library. I fell in love with storytelling—as we all do—early.
When I was 6 years old, I got the slipper* for daydreaming in class when I should have been writing. That was the start of my rebellion against “what writers do” and also against being bored.
* The slipper = spanked with a slipper by Mrs Stubbs, the headmistress. Teaching in the 80s, friend, was different.
Around that time, I disappeared for an afternoon and my parents got the whole neighbourhood out looking for me. They were about to call the police when my dad found me under the dining room table hidden behind the table cloth and under blankets, reading a pile of books, having disappeared into another world.
I learned a bunch of important life lessons. Stuff like how stories can literally change us and the way we see the world.
Then I learned the true power of words when I was 16. I learned how sentences slung together with passion behind them can show us a different way to move through the world. In the midst of my first heartbreak, when I thought my world was ending, I got a letter from Mandie, a family friend. She told me I could do anything I wanted. That things were shit right now, but they would get better—and I was young and beautiful and had the world at my feet. That letter changed everything for me, but I wouldn’t realise it until much later.
I filed that away and got on with the important business of f*cking things up: a-levels, a marriage, various jobs. (I got fired.)
And learned another lesson: I didn’t have to follow the path laid out for us. I could choose something else. So I did. I started my own business as a copywriter, telling other people’s stories.
Then, because I hated the gym and the box it tried to put me in, I joined the circus to channel my need to be silly and creative and expressive. I became a pole dancer and trapeze artist, and wrote stories in the air. I learned a lot about creativity and storytelling…
And then one of my copywriting clients asked me to ghostwrite a book for them. I had no idea how to do that, so I said yes and found out. I wrote that book, and another, then found out something else: I didn’t want to help businesses tell better stories so they could sell more…
I wanted to help humans tell their stories and put them in books, so more and more of us could read more and more diverse stories and see a more complete picture of the world.
I swerved away from a successful copywriting and marketing business to do what I do now: help the most incredible, weird, and wonderful people tell their stories with grace and passion so the world sits up and listens.
It’s an honour every single day. I help the world’s most interesting, cool, and exciting people do an incredibly hard thing they’re not quite sure they’ll be able to do: write a book that’ll change someone’s world.
