Jody Vitek, author of Texas Two Step

Thank you, Mysti, for hosting the Melange authors on your blog this month. I have so many things to be thankful for but this year, I am thankful for life. Not my own in particular, don’t get me wrong, I am thankful for my own life and the journey it’s taking me on.

This year I’m thankful for my father’s life. He found out, after waiting too long to see his doctor, he had a tumor in his rectum. Further testing led to Chemo therapy and radiation treatments to shrink the tumor. I was informed that the tumor wasn’t cancerous, but early this fall when he underwent surgery to remove the tumor, I was shocked to hear the doctor use the words ‘remove all of the cancer.’ All this time I thought my dad didn’t have cancer, when in actuality he did. Surgery was a success and I am proud to share that he is now cancer free.

This brought me to thinking about my time with my father, all the things he taught me without knowing, and for this, I am thankful for having him in my life.


Born and raised in Minnesota, Jody remains close to home living with her husband and three children. Growing up, she enjoyed reading V.C. Andrews' the Dollanganger series, S.E. Hinton, and many more. Between watching soccer games, scrapbooking, gardening and being the COO of the Vitek household, she writes contemporary romances.
