A native of Chicago, Illinois, Val Thompson-Walker relocated in recent years to Southwestern Wisconsin where her husband is employed as a military paralegal specialist. Prior to relocating to Wisconsin in 2013, the family was stationed at Fort Hunter Liggett, CA. During that mobilization, Val completed a Master’s program in Communication, Media, and Theatre, worked as a Continuing Education Instructor for the City of Chicago Colleges Wright College campus, and welcomed their first child, Nathan Elijah, into the family. Since that time, she has enjoyed serving her family in the roles of homemaker, homeschool teacher, caregiver for her lovely mother, and the family's newest addition-- Naomi Elise.
In addition to caring for her family, Val has founded Vatic Publishing, LLC, “…so that I may have a platform from which to launch the books I am writing, and to provide publishing, ghostwriting, and editing services to other authors.” When asked about her favorite things, Val says "I really enjoy reading Proverbs, so much so that we often play it on cd's in the house. I also love photography, dance, theater arts, travel, and especially, the privilege of being Nathan and Naomi’s Mom!”
