use it to create."  ~ Maria Montessori 

This Month

August 2018

Time is passing quicker than I realize, and here we are into August. I’ll be signing at Paperbacks Plus Bookstore on Friday, August 24 and my final night will be on Friday, September 14. You can learn more HERE. The Friday nights in N. St. Paul are full of entertainment, food and fun. If you love classic and muscle cars, with some motorcycles, you’d get your fill at History Cruzer’s. Oh, and don’t get me started on all the food vendors. Yum!


There is plenty of time for you to join me and the other authors at Mayhem in the Midwest Book Signing in Madison, WI on Saturday, September 22, 2018. Drawings will be held for gift baskets to be given away. At the pajama party with DJ later in the evening after the signing there will be contests for best pj’s and more. You can learn all about the event HERE. I hope you join us.


Congratulations, to Heather of Farmington, MN, she was the winner of my quarterly newsletter subscriber drawing. Since I celebrated my 50th birthday in July, I also gave away a small gift to a newsletter subscriber. Congratulations, to Joy of Mesa, AZ. Thank you to all of my subscribers for following me in this crazy writing world of mine! Next subscriber drawing will be held in October. If you’re not a subscriber to my newsletter and would like to be a part of the drawing, as well as be first to hear news, click HERE.


Along with writing Autumn Falls, I’ve been helping my son and fiancée with wedding stuff. They are using a planning company and decided on an outdoor garden location for the wedding and the reception venue. The reception venue also takes care of the meal to be served, which means they choose their dinner menu. The DJ is also a part of the reception package. There is more included but I won’t drag on about that here, but it’s nice that a large portion of the planning is taken care of. Don’t get me wrong, they do have important details still to decide and finalize. As mother-of-the-groom, I’ve been looking at dresses online to have an idea of what’s out there and what I like. I’m also working on something bigger but don’t want to share until it’s a for-sure thing. Stay tuned (maybe January or February).


I’m excited to be attending Hamilton in Minneapolis at the end of the month with my daughter before she heads back to college in September. The musical is her reward for making the Chancellor's list for both semesters while being in their honor’s college program during her freshman year. I couldn’t be happier for her success.


Thank you for stopping by! Make sure to look around, and feel free to contact me.

Review Quotes

Florida Heat

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

Texas Two Step

 "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

Taming the Texas Beauty

 "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

Rescue Me

 "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

Up Close and Personal

 "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
