Vicki Tapia

After teaching somewhere around 10,000 mother/baby pairs the art of breastfeeding, Vicki Tapia found her energies redirected to the other end of life, after both parents were diagnosed with dementia. A diary written to help her cope with caregiving morphed into Somebody Stole My Iron: A Family Memoir of Dementia, published in 2014 by Praeclarus Press. Tapia, a blogger for the Huffington Post, was a finalist for Best Woman Writer in The 2015 High Plains Book Awards, and is currently at work on a semi-biographical account of her great-grandmother's tumultuous life from Michigan to Montana around the turn of the 20th century.

Vicki is an author member/owner of This House of Books since April 2016.
