winning author, Vicki M. Taylor writes dramatic fiction with strong,
unforgettable women characters.
She attacks the hard issues and brings them to the forefront with a
deftness that outshines most other authors. Her ability to sink her
teeth into these headline issues and pull the reader into the story
makes her one of the best authors of this new century.
No issue is too controversial for Vicki. Murder, teenage suicide,
domestic violence and more, you'll find her stories not only give you
the harsh realities of the character's life but she wraps you up in
their private emotional lives as well -- daring you to not care, not
feel, not read.
OUT FOR JUSTICE
Rookie Detective Karen Sykes is out to prove she is good at her job,
finding justice for the darkness in her past through law enforcement.
She gets her first chance to shine with a case that hits a little too
close to home. Like her younger sister, a four-year-old boy, has been
brutally murdered. The case pairs her with Mike Connelly, an
attractive crime scene technician, and sparks fly between the two of
them. Mike resists the attraction and only adds more emotional
conflict to the case.
When her partner becomes the latest victim and ends up in the hospital
near death, Karen sets out to find the murderer before he hurts anyone
else. Only the case gets trickier when the murder suspect ends up
dead, leaving new clues to the real killer. Finding comfort in Mike's
support, their relationship heats up, but so does the investigation.
The killer has a plan. One that involves a Cat and Mouse game of hide
and seek inside the hospital, where her partner struggles for his
life. Karen discovers it takes more than catching a killer to make the
pain of her past go away. It also takes opening her heart and learning
to trust in others.
OUT FOR JUSTICE - Coming Soon!
TRUST IN THE WIND
When pregnant teen, Joanne, chooses single motherhood,
she loses everything, including her family. Four years later, she's
fiercely independent, trusts no one and is barely keeping her head
above water. Roy is a Hillsborough County Sheriff, and a widower who
lost his wife and child during a burglary gone terribly wrong. Six
years later, he still refuses to love for fear of losing it again.
Together, these two just might get a second chance to learn about
trust and love. When you can't count on people, TRUST IN THE WIND.
Reviews for Trust in the Wind
"...an enjoyable, easy read." -
Cindy Himler, Romantic
Times Book Reviews
"...Strong characters, suspenseful, and a love
scene that massaged my heart. This was one time where the romance
was beautiful; a gift . . . in a sense. As I read parts of it, I
found myself saying, "I want that kind of love!" Every scene, every
exciting movement, and yes, even the kisses exchanged, were given to
me in such a way that an artist could not have painted a better
picture for my senses to enjoy." -- Georgia Richardson
Book Buzz, Lisa Ciurro "...Taylor makes it work. Her
characters are vivid and believable, and she makes you care about
what happens to them. Trust in the Wind is a touching
and hopeful book that left me smiling long after I'd finished

BIG RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT!!
To all my fans, family, and friends. I've so appreciated your support
and love throughout the years as I've traveled the winding and
sometimes lonely path of writer. You've put up with me not returning
calls, not cooking or cleaning, and dashing to the computer at a
moment's notice no matter the time of day or night with more text for
It's like saying good-bye to an old friend who's passed on. I'll find
things to do to fill my time. I've already discovered the fun of
container gardening. I have three grandchildren now. They are keeping
me rather busy! More traveling is in the works! I have a good circle
of girlfriends who I adore. My dog, Jack and my parrot, Bailey are
very happy that their "Mommy" gets to spend more time with them!
I've discovered the love of reading again, for the enjoyment of
reading. Instead of editing all the time! What fun!
And, best of all, my husband and I get to spend more time together.
Love to you all,
Vicki M. Taylor
