About Me

Vanessa K. Eccles has had a writer’s spirit since before she could write. She won her first short story contest at the age of six and was first published at thirteen. Words have always been a part of her life, but it wasn't until 2009 that she began focusing on novels and has been pursuing her dream ever since.

Her deep love of literature inspired her to study English at Troy University before founding Belle Reve Literary Journal, where she currently serves as executive editor. Before starting her own journal, she spent a year interning with Deep South Magazine, editing and scheduling publication dates for short stories and poetry.

When she's not writing or devouring books, she enjoys living the lake life with her Prince Charming and their four dogs.
