Meet the Author

While living a childhood in the ranch country of Nebraska’s sandhills, I grew to love the Old West. It seems I’ve written forever about that era–from the time my four daughters were just toddlers, in fact. Now, I’m a grandmother (but a young one, right?)

When we moved to eastern Nebraska and after I discovered Romance Writers of America and my local chapter, I learned the nuts and bolts of the publishing business. I studied, wrote, got rejected and wrote some more. Gradually, I began to place in contests, then win them. My writing became good enough that an agent signed on to represent me. I kept writing, got more rejections, but persevered, until one day–at last!–I sold a manuscript to Dorchester Publishing for their Leisure Books line.

I went on to release four novels from Dorchester, and Harlequin Historicals picked me up with my fifth book. As you read this, I’ve released my fourteenth romance, and I’m currently working on a project that’s new and different and quite exciting. Stay tuned.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit more about me!

In 1876 in Niobrara City, Nebraska, railroad owner Reese Carrison leads the town in celebrating the completion of his Nebraska Dakota Railroad line. His best friend Bram Kaldwell also appears accompanied by his widowed daughter, Rebecca Ann and his granddaughter Margaret. Reese plans to ask Rebecca to marry him because he wants a wife and family. He is not opposed to using Margaret as a tool to that end by insisting the rambunctious child needs the strong hand of a father. However, Reese admits to himself that he does not love the steady Margaret.

A group of Gypsies arrive during the gala event, but one of the band, Liza, is charged with attempting to abduct Margaret. Liza flees on Reese's horse and he quickly follows, but soon a monster storm with a tornado threatens the lives of both. Liza hates the Gaje as her people call the whites after what her biological father did to her mother, but to her chagrin finds she is attracted to Reese. He reciprocates those unwanted feelings even knowing that Rebecca is better suited as his wife.

Readers who enjoy an exciting western romance that brings the era to life through two engaging lead protagonists and a powerful support cast will want to read LADY GYPSY. The audience will feel the prejudice that the Gypsies felt and how easy the sons and daughters on both sides learn to hate, but will wonder how Liza could trust any Gaje. Still love conquers all in Pam Crook¿s winning novel.
