Author Biography

My name is Victoria Staat and writing has always been what I've wanted to do. However, as everyone can attest to life often gets in the way of our dreams. For me it was a husband in my early 20s, then children, sick parents, even a young daughter with heart problems, all seemed to take prescedence over those dreams. It wasn't until I was 50 years old that I could finally leave my job and go after that dream. With lots of encouragement from my daughter I started writing 10 years ago and I haven't stopped.

One year ago my first book was finally published by Eloquent/Strategic books. and I'm very excited to see people enjoying my book, 'The Sixties Girl.'

I'm very lucky because My husband of 38 years is excited for me and helps me with lots of surport and encouragement. We lost our daughter 6 years ago and we miss her very much. I also have a son, a daughter-in-law and a beautiful granddaughter.

And now I'm an author, boy that sounds good after all these years. Yes, I'm a lucky lady.

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

In “The Sixties Girl,” Victoria Staat tells a story of when life was quite a bit more innocent that it is today. With the setting in the 1960’s, readers can enjoy the signs of the times as it was back in those days. Brad Montgomery had the things that count going for him, women loved him and he had money. But Claudette wasn’t about to let anyone else have Brad, for she wanted him all for herself. All of this changed though after Brad went off on a business trip. Brad and Claudette had an argument before he left, so he felt free to look when he saw the cute car hop at Lou’s Drive-In. Kit was sure to check out Brad as well, especially with his shining Shelby Mustang. Sparks seemed to fly hot when these two young people met. Imagine miss Claudette when she meets Kit! Of course she did try her best to pull the breaks on their relationship, but did she really have it in her to break them up? Don’t miss this sparkling romance and a nice trip back to a funny and exciting time in history.

I love the book cover, with the car hop Kit in her bobby socks, tennis shoes and ponytail. And then there is Lou’s Drive-In Restaurant. I love meeting Lou and the restaurant gang. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip back to the 1960’s era, enjoying everything as it was back then. Remember the jukebox music? Victoria Staat pens a fun and enjoyable story with characters that are so realistic and believable for the 1960’s. She so vividly details the story to make you feel as though you are back there in time. I enjoyed Kit and Brad’s story, with their romance and struggles, love and war, and the determination to make their love work. If I were you, I would run out and grab a copy of this book to read and enjoy for yourself.

It was the cover that also got my attention, I picked up the book and skimmed though a few pages. I was hooked and had to read the whole story. I'm glad I did. Its a fun and easy read very enjoyable.
