Vicky Aram's childhood was within a Catholic community, surrounded by the sky-high coal heaps of the north east and hard-working miners trudging home with coal black faces. Her musical talent revealed itself at an early age. She attained the A.L.C.M diploma at fifteen years of age in Newcastle, for pianoforte performance. Inspired by her mother and sister, her drawing skills led her to art college and before her twentieth birthday she was a fashion artist in London where the swinging sixties took off, one of her early jobs was to meet Vidal Sassoon in Bond Street and sketch the ultra simplicity of his hair cuts. Vidal insisted on trimming her hair as she completed the drawing for The Daily Telegraph. A successful artist, her musical skills attracted attention and this autobiography shows that the opportunity to work beside famous jazz musicians and personalities opened up as natural as the spring develops into summer. She writes this first book, Coal mines, Confessions and Dancehalls, title describes the culture of her roots, and the journey up to the period when the music stopped in 1999. Already immersed in the sequel to this first writing, Return to the North brings very different experiences and another journey into the learning process of the art of Metaphysics while the Kings Cross to Newcastle train thundered forward and back again. A third book is planned-following on from the knowledge and experience in understanding the extraordinary complexities of our human selves, the mysteries of the occult sciences and experimenting with our own unconscious as being the true source of problem solving.
