"I'm pleased when a book captures me early and keeps my attention until the end and Up Close and Personal certainly did that. There are multiple plot lines to follow and enough action that kept me from wanting to put this book down!" ~ Room With Books on Up Close and Personal

"Texas Two Step is a swirl of wounded relationships, tempestuous love, and spinning plot lines. The author does a terrific job starting things off with a bang and expertly keeping that heady pace through to the end." ~ InD'tale Magazine on Texas Two Step

"This sweet love story's focus is on family and relationships. The bond between the families and long time, small town friends is very refreshing." ~ InD'tale Magazine on Rescue Me

"This tautly woven story builds to a fever pitch as Vitek sorts out the good guys from the bad."

November 2016


The election is over and we return to our regularly scheduled program. I’m super excited with all that has happened since I last posted. The biggest news is that TAMING THE TEXAS BEAUTY is up for pre-order. You can get the eBook for $2.99 up until release day. The price will go up on Tuesday, November 22. You can catch excerpt teasers on my Facebook author page, Twitter, and LinkedIn. I created a book trailer and have shared that HERE, as well as, on the social media sites.

Do you remember when I told you about two short stories I was working on for a food anthology? Well, I’m pleased to announce that in April/May 2017, you can read my short story
PEANUT BUTTER KISSES in the Food and Romance Go Together anthology from Satin Romance. In July/August 2017, you can read BEER BUN BEAU in Volume Two of the Food and Romance Go Together anthology. While PEANUT BUTTER KISSES are new characters, in BEER BUN BEAU, I give Jackson from my book RESCUE ME a Happy For Now (HFN in the writing world) story. Both of these stories, as with all of the shorts, contain a recipe.

With this last bit of my exciting news, comes a little bad. I more than likely will not have a full-length book release in 2017, but have big plans for 2018. In October I went to Turtle Lake for my annual writing retreat. The ladies helped me brainstorm a four book series set in MN, with the main character of each book being one of four siblings. My goal is to write the first book and get a good head start on the second before releasing the first of the four books. Stay tuned for more details as I start this wonderful journey.

As for my personal life, well, we’re entering my favorite time of year. My husband is settling nicely into his new position at work, my oldest son has been promoted at his job, my daughter is busy with school and college prep (received her first scholarship), and my youngest son finished his fall traveling soccer season, as well as his school soccer season. We’re all healthy and that’s all I can ask for.

Wishing each of you a thankful filled Thanksgiving Day. Thank you for visiting.
