About Me

My photo
I grew up in Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, then lived in Denmark and traveled throughout Europe before coming back to Colorado. I have two adult sons, whom I cherish. I started my writing career as a columnist and investigative reporter and eventually became the first woman editor of two different papers. Along the way, my team and I won numerous state and several national awards, including the National Journalism Award for Public Service. In 2011, I was awarded the Keeper of the Flame Lifetime Achievement Award for Journalism. Now I write historical romance and contemporary romantic suspense.


Seductive Musings

Untamed has a pub date!

That's the good news. After having precisely ZERO books out in 2007 — count 'em, zero — I will have two books out in 2008. The bad news — and it's not really bad news — is that it's November 4, 2008. The long lull is due to the excruciating amount of time I put into Unlawful Contact. Hopefully, the books will be worth the wait, and you will all still remember who I am. Pamela who?

Yes, I write at roughly the same speed that sap flows in January. A large part of that is due to being a single mom. Unlike a lot of authors, I don't have a spouse working to pay the bills while I climb the lists. And I don't have another person in the house to take care of things like proofing college applications and soothing teenagers with broken hearts.

I am just starting Chapter 7. Other things have taken center stage the past few weeks, as you all know, and I'm hoping to make real progress this weekend.

Thanks so much for your wonderful, healing words for Ben. He is doing better than he was a week ago, for certain. I've gotten great support from his teachers at school, who know him well enough to realize his world had just been toppled and took the time to call me.

Aimee and Bo, I haven't gotten your cover flats mailed off yet. Sorry! I will do it soon!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Awesome 2 in 08' very excited about that! I will make sure I double check the dates and add them to my important reminder that pops up on my computer.

Debbie H said...

Wow, 2 in 2008! Good for you! I see you have our favorite highlander pic out. Yummy, wish he could find me dressed just like that! Tingles!

Pamela who? Are you kidding! We won't forget you! You, my dear, are unforgettable! We love you and your characters so much. You write, put out fires as needed and take care of yourself.

Aimee said...

No worries Hon, we are leaving tomorrow & going to be gone for a week so no rush :)

You know I'm all over your books whenever I can get them!

Karen said...

Forget you? NEVER!

And regarding Benjy, please give him a huge hug from me. I can't say anything better or wiser than anyone else. But one thing is obvious. It has happened to all of us at least once. It sucks moosecock! And a huge hug to you too. It was obvious in your posts that you adored her too.

Can't wait for 2008!
