More About the Author
Pam Howes was born in Cheshire, UK. She is a retired Interior Designer who loves creating stories, but only started writing seriously about twelve years ago. The idea for her first novel, set in the sixties, came from her time as a teenager, working in a local record store and hanging round with the musicians who frequented the business.That first novel evolved into a series, three books now published. The first, Three Steps to Heaven, is the tale of rock'n'roll band, The Raiders, and their lives and loves. The sequel, 'Til I Kissed You, featuring the same characters, is set in the eighties. This book sees the reformation of The Raiders after a spell of retirement. Always On My Mind, set in 2001,is a further tale of love, betrayal and music. Pam is a big fan of sixties music and it's this love and the support and encouragement of her musician partner that compelled her to write her series. She has three adult daughters, seven grandchildren and lives in leafy Cheshire. As well as writing novels she writes short stories, which have appeared in charity anthologies and online e-zines, and poems, many of which are published. She's a member of on-line peer review group You Write On and a part-time roadie to her partner. She much prefers writing to curtain-making as no ladders are involved. A stand-alone true-life romance, Fast Movin' Train is now available.
Check out her new website-still in its infancy-but she's promised to add more as soon as time permits. Updates on future novels will be posted on the site.
