About Vickery

I'm a freelance writer and journalist covering animal scandals and industries in the news. My writing has exposed the pipeline of racehorses to slaughter, wild horse politics and roundups (for Forbes); billionaire welfare ranchers (Alternet and Salon); and horse drugs and food hazards (Newsweek/The Daily Beast and the HuffingtonPost). I am also the Executive Editor of the Daily Pitchfork, a new animal journalism site that critiques media coverage of animal and food politics.

I just completed my second screenplay (optioned), about a courageous, Harvard-educated, small town mayor in E. Texas who shook things up, shut down a bloody business — and saved her community. I am now at work on a comedic feature about church, latin lovers and motorcycles.

Unique traits: I am most known as a journalist for writing about racing, ranching and the slaughter industry. Not your typical career-building move, but fascinating subjects for their politics, lack of transparency and brutality.
