HER jewellery has been worn by a Lady and now Mallow woman Vikki Shorten has written a book that young Princesses will go Ga Ga for.
Having designed jewellery that has been worn by celebrity A- Listers including Lady Ga Ga, Rhianna and Fergie, Vikki has turned her talents to writing, releasing her first book just in time for the Christmas market.
'Emily and the Prince' is a charming storybook based on the adventures that the eponymous hero has while exploring a hotel.
As its title might suggest, Emily eventually meets her Prince Charming, who gives her a heart pennant as a token of their undying love.
The book, which was featured on last Friday nights Late Late Toy Show and is on the Toy Show recommended reading list, comes complete with a VSL sterling silver heart pendant, making it the ideal gift for little girls this festive season.
Speaking to the Corkman Vikki, the owner of VSL Jewellery which sells to the stars in LA and Las Vegas, said the idea for the book was loosely based on her experiences as a child in New York.
"I always loved the glitz and glamour of places such as the Plaza Hotel, and thought it would be fun to write a book about that," she said.
"The response has been so huge that Argosy Books are now distributing it and the book has nearly sold out for Christmas," added Vicki.
However, young Mallow Princesses need not be too disappointed as Vikki will be delivering copies of the book to Ideas in Mallow this coming weekend.
"The aim was to spark the imaginations of little Princesses everywhere and the addition of the silver pendant gives it that extra little bit of something special," said Vikki.
She revealed that the success of the book has inspired her to now write a whole series o f books about Emily.
