PAM CROOKS, a native Nebraskan, is a published writer of historical romances and westerns. "I've long enjoyed the Old West era," she says. "I've lived in Nebraska all my life, and a good chunk of those years were in western Nebraska, so it was only natural, I guess, that I grew to love the time period. Watching all the popular westerns like Bonanza, High Chapparel, Gunsmoke, and Rawhide — with that cutie Rowdy Yates &151; influenced me a bit, too. It seems I've written forever. While waiting for my husband to return from the graveyard shift at Union Pacific years and years ago, I'd pen my story in a spiral notebook with only Johnny Carson and his Tonight Show to keep me company. When I received an electric typewriter as a birthday gift, I thought I'd hit the big-time." Pam Crooks is the author of Broken Blossoms, Hannah's Vow, Lady Gypsy, Wyoming Wildflower, and other books. She is president of the Omaha chapter of Romance Writers of America, CAMEO, and is a member of Prairieland Romance Writers and the RWA mystery/suspense chapter, Kiss of Death. She is employed at Clarkson West Medical Center in Omaha.
