Welcome to Vicki Kondelik's home page! I am currently working in the Monograph Cataloging Unit of the Hatcher Graduate Library at the University of Michigan, where I have also worked in the Authorities Unit and the Clements Recon Project. I have a M.I.L.S. from the University of Michigan and a B.A. in History, Latin, and Greek from Butler University.
I am the author of two historical novels (as yet unpublished), one based on the opera Tosca and one about the 16th century Roman noblewoman Beatrice Cenci.
Read the prologue to my novel about Beatrice
Cenci (The prologue might not make it into the published novel,
but it introduces you to the character.)
I love to read! Here are some links to my favorite authors:
Katherine Neville is another of my favorite authors. Her novel The
Eight is, possibly, my favorite book. Unfortunately, I could not find
a home page for her, so I decided to create one of my own:
The Unofficial Katherine Neville Home Page
And now Katherine Neville has her own home page.
My brief review of The Eight
My longer review of The Eight
My review of Katherine Neville's A Calculated
My review of Katherine Neville's
The Magic Circle
My review of
Katherine Neville's The Fire, the sequel to The
Fan fiction based on The Eight at fanfiction.net and at Archive of Our Own
You can also read the list of my favorite novels. Of course, this list
gets longer all the time!
Here are two
versions of my review of City Of Darkness, City Of Light by Marge
Piercy; I liked this historical novel of the French Revolution very much,
but not enough to put it on my list of favorite novels. You can read the shorter version and
the longer version of this review.
I am a fan of Les Misérables, both the Victor Hugo novel and the musical. I wrote a story based on one of the characters. It was also inspired by a (much better) story by Sharon L. Taylor, editor of THE BARRICADE.
I am currently working on a website about the soprano Meta Seinemeyer.
