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.

Unlawful Contact is out!

It took a year to write, then there were months of typesetting, copy editing and proofing. Then it hit the printing press. And now a long last Unlawful Contact is out!

Yes, Libby’s widget has done its job and counted out the moments, and somehow it’s April 1!

I’m so excited to finally see Marc and Sophie’s story on the shelves and to be able to share it and discuss it with all of you.

Lots is going on today in honor of the big day.

The Good, the Bad and the Unread has an interview with me posted on their site, together with the interview of Pamela Clifton that already ran here. You can read it at Sybil and Gwen have been running the Goldilocks blogs in tandem with my blog and have been awesome about getting them out there.

Kristie J also has an interview on her blog. Today is Part II. Go to and say hello.

And at long last, I have a new Web site. It’s got much of the content it had before, but lots more, as well, including a page of Fun Stuff, a photo gallery at the bottom of my bio page, author’s notes on all my books and little tidbits and extras. It went live at 12:40 a.m. Mountain Time. And it will continue to grow, as I post more deleted scenes and fan art and fan fic and whatever comes my way.

Also, I now have a Yahoo group, and we've been having a great time discussing romance and hero sandwiches and Marc and Julian. Go to to sign up and join in the chat.

Last but not least I’m having a contest. So in honor of the big release day — that’s TODAY! — I’m giving away a signed copy of the book together with samples of “Marc” and “Sophie” perfumes from Dawn Spencer Hurwitz!

To enter, go check out my new website (you can click on the link at the right) and send me a message using my new Guestbook by next Monday — that’s one week from yesterday. I’ll draw a name Monday night and post the winner here. Be sure to write “Blog contest” in the comments section.

Thanks to all of you who’ve done so much to help me get to this day! Your support means more to me than you could ever know. And to my Gangsta Bitches for those early A.M. text messages and emails — I love you!

I'll be heading out tonight to sign books in my local bookstores and to make sure they have it on the shelves.

I can't wait to hear what you all think of Marc. Speaking of hero sandwiches, who wants to be the creamy filling between Marc and Julian?


Debbie_D said...

I've been anxiously waiting for Marc... Starting the book tonight (had to finish another i was reading).
I want to be the filling!!!!

Libby Loo said...

Yippee! I can't wait to read this in book form, especially knowing my hands will be touching the hottie-bo-bottie version of Hunt on the cover ;)

For some reason, I can't get into your site right now, but I bet it's just overloaded right now. I shall try back again latah!

If I can take a moment...I got to smell the perfumes Pamela's giving away myself, and they are just fabulous! They are not your run of the mill scents by any means, and definitely some of the highest quality stuff I've ever used (and you're hearing from a former designer perfume junkie).

Anyway. Best wishes today, PC! XOXOXO

Debbie H said...

Congrats, PC! I finally get to discuss it with others. I have been re-reading it and enjoying each read. I went to the bookstore today to get my copy in paperback. LOL

Cheryle said...

Well you will be happy to know it is out here at the bookstore but Stupid me ordered it from Amazon and now I have to wait LOL! Oh well good things come to those who wait right!

Christi said...

Oo-oo-oo-oo-ooh I am too excited. I got my hands on a copy and am just dying to start reading it!

Sin said...

WOOHOO! Today is the day! I've been in a child like excited state all morning!

I'm off to hide underneath the desk and read!

Congrats Pam! On both the release of UC (finally!) and the new website! It's gorgeous!

Denise A. Agnew said...

Hi there! I had to stop by your website today and discovered your blog. How did I find you? Through my buddy Bonnie Vanak. I'm always in the mood for an excellent romantic suspense. When I read the excerpts on your website, I knew I had to pick up you I-Team series. Looking forward to reading them. May you have many, many sales!
All the best,
Denise A. Agnew

Hi, Debbie D — So what you're saying is that you're going to spend the night with Marc? I hope you enjoy him! ;-)

LibBAY, my sista! Don't know what's up with the site. Hopefully you've gotten in by now. Thanks for the good wishes. I'll have to see about getting some "Marc" and "Sophie" to you. :-)

Hi, Debbie! Yes, finally, you can talk about it with people. There's going to be a discussion on my Yahoo group. I can't remember the URL to save my life, but it shouldn't be hard to find. There's lots of Marc lovers there, so come by and play! It would be awesome to have you there.

Oh, Cheryle, I feel your pain! I hope Amazon sends your copy soon. What a bummer to have to wait when it's out. ARGH!

Yay, Christi! I can't wait to hear what you think about Marc and Sophie. Pop by the Yahoo group if you can.

Hi, Sin! I know you won't see this response because you're hiding with dust bunnies beneath your desk right now. LOL! I hope you're enjoying the story!

Hi, Denise, and welcome! A friend of Bonnie's is a friend of mine. So good to hear from you! Thanks for the good wishes. I hope you enjoy the stories! Come back again!

Thank GOD that UNTAMED is backed up. Right now I'm on Benjy's computer.

Sorry about that everyone! This is a royal bummer!
