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

Come to the I-Team party and meet me and Kaleo Griffith!




I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last posted anything on this blog.

I did finally finish Striking Distance and turned it in. My editor got back to me last week and said she loved it, which took the weight of the world off my shoulders.  I’m still waiting for a final cover, which, of course, I will share with you. This was one of the toughest books I’ve ever written, very complicated and requiring a lot of nuanced planning, but my editor said it was definitely worth the wait.

Striking Distance will be out on November 5! Watch for excerpts soon!

In the meantime, it somehow became July. Say what?!?! No, seriously. It’s July, and I’m chasing my tail trying to catch up. I’ve spent the better part of two weeks trying to clean and reorganize my office, focusing on the monstrosity that is my desk, and am finally making some progress.

But more than that, I’ve been getting ready for the Romance Writers of America conference being held in Atlanta, Ga., July 17-20. I wanted to invite you to a couple of events.

RWA “Readers for Life” Literacy Book Signing  — Wednesday, July 17, 5:307:30 p.m. in the Atrium Ballroom A-C of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. I’ll be signing books together with more than 400 other authors in a special event that raises thousands of dollars each year that go to literacy signings in the conference’s host state. As a RITA finalist, I’ll get to have a pretty blue flag on my table. I may be doing some audiobook giveaways and coupons courtesy of Tantor Audio at the signing, so if you live in the Atlanta area, please come!





Pamela Clare’s I-Team Party — Join me and Kaleo Griffith, the sexy voice/actor behind the I-Team audiobooks, for a special get-together. Meet us face to face, have us sign your books and audiobooks, and enjoy a tasty buffet and drinks. Space is limited, so RSVP as soon as you can.

Here are the details:


Where: The Media Room of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, 265 Peachtree Center Ave., Atlanta, GA

When: Saturday, July 20, 3-4:30 PM

Admission: $30 per person to cover the cost of the buffet and drinks

RSVP by July 11!


 If you’re already attending RWA as a writer or live in the Atlanta area and are just planning on coming to the public events as a reader, please join us!


In the meantime, I wish you a Happy Fourth of July if you live here in the U.S. and hope you’re having a great summer!

Yay! STRIKING DISTANCE is done! Cannot wait to read it.

Wish I were going to RWA. Instead, I'll be frantically packing and trying to figure out what to do for the month I'll be homeless between leases. But have loads of fun and take loads of pictures with Kaleo for those of us suffering from OKD :P
