The Romance Review

July 2018

     With the kids out of school, my schedule has been hectic but has slowed enough for me to get serious again with my writing. Friday, June 22nd kicked off the start of my signings in N St Paul. The weather was awesome! As always, it was great to see all the fabulous cars, smell the wonderful variety of foods from the vendors, hear the live music, and meet new people. The inaugural Royal Readers @ Rosedale Signing on Saturday, June 30th was a fun event. I met some new readers and authors and got to hang with familiar author friends as well. I have several more Friday nights in N. St. Paul at Paperbacks Plus Bookstore. You can find the dates and a map HERE. In September I’ll be in Madison, WI for the Mayhem in the Midwest Signing event. You can learn more about the event and what authors will be attending HERE.
     My son and I spent time volunteering during the past month at a local food shelf. It was a great experience. My oldest son and his fiancée have set a date for their wedding and are checking locations for the wedding and reception. By this time next year, they will be husband and wife. Hard to believe he’ll be married. I’m not old enough for that. Oh, wait, I am. This month I celebrate the big 5-0. Not a big deal really for me. Check back when I hit sixty. I think I’m off by ten years because thirty wasn’t hard for me but forty was difficult. This month also marks the one-year anniversary of my mother-in-law’s passing. The year passed quickly, yet it feels like only yesterday she left us. Make sure to tell the ones you love that you love them.
     Since I don’t have more to say about my writing, I’d like to hear from you. What would you like to know about me, my published stories, the upcoming Seasons of Change series, or maybe ask about my writing process or writing in general.
     Thank you for visiting and enjoy looking at my site. If you want to be the first to get writing news, join my newsletter group.


The Romance Reviews

"Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create."  
~ Maria Montessori

Night Owl Romance

"Each writer gives the reader a different story with a little magic thrown in! It's quite true food leads to a mans heart!" ~ LiverpoolCathy on Food and Romance Go Together, Vol 1

"In typical romantic suspense style, it’s the suspense that keeps these characters apart more than their own choice. However, where sometimes the suspense seems overdramatized with its only purpose to keep the characters apart, that’s not the care here: the suspense feels very real..." ~ InD'tale Magazine on Taming the Texas Beauty

"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."

                                                                            ~ RT Book Reviews on Florida Heat
