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.

Late-breaking news....

I am very excited to tell you that Pamela Clifton will be joining us on my blog during the month of March as part of my month-long "Prison Diaries" series of blogs.

Unlawful Contact is dedicated to Pam's daughter, who was stillborn after guards neglected and even teased Pam when she went into labor at eight months gestation. When I first "met" Pam, it was over the phone, as she was an inmate in the women's prison. But she's out and doing very well and will join us to comment on the book and on the issues it explores.

I will probably interview her and then ask you all to jump in with your questions. I'll let you konw when this is going to be so you can write it on your calendars and not miss it.

Pam is a very special woman, and I felt that I was really doing my job as a journalist when I broke her story. I got fired from one newspaper for covering her situation, and then became editor of another. But I won't tell the story here...

So please join me in welcoming her to the blog. She posted a message to me below, and she'll be back.

Hope you're all doing well.

In the meantime, I'm going through my jail notes in preparation for "Goldilocks Goes to Jail," which will launch either tomorrow or Friday, depending on how late I can stay awake.

Hi Pamela too cool on Pamela Clifton joining you on here. I can't wait to read the posts and hear from you both. WELCOME Pamela Clifton! I have had the pleasure of reading Unlawful Contact and I was floored and deeply touched by the issues it addressed. I'm so so sorry for all that you went through. God bless you.

HUGS to you both!

I am very excited to be able to join you all. My issue is a national one and I was lucky enough to have someone as talented and gifted as Pam to tell the story.

Welcome, Pamela Clifton! I look forward to getting to know you better and learn from your experience.

Goldilocks Goes to Jail is a must read and I will definitely be here for that one! It may become the primer for all little would be hoodlums in elementery school.

I can't wait to see you in your prison garb. I am going out on the internet to see if I can find your articles.

Welcome Pamela, or "P.C 2" as you will be guest blogging maybe? I was horrified by the conditions that P.C 1 described in Unlawful Contact.

Once we start to lose our humanity in the treatment of others we kinda lose our right to judge others....IMHO.

I am looking forward to reading your interview and of course "Goldilocks goes to jail"!!

I would have the Holly approach to jail "Please sir, may I just straighten my hair before I attend court? I can't deal with frizz, and I gotta fix my makeup too!"

That won't mean much if you haven't read UC yet, but just wait. I love Holly!

Thanks, everyone for making Pam feel welcome. I realized that she and I share initials. Makes it confusing! Joanie, that may be a solution.

I had planned to start Golidlocks' jail diaries today or tomorrow, but I'm delayed now till Monday for technical reasons.

Then I thought I could interivew Pam about her experience and post that on Saturday so that you all could ask her questions. So we'll try that.

In the meantime, rest assured very interesting things are coming your way on this blog. ;-)

Hugs to you all,
P.C. 1
