More About the Author
Pam Howes was born in Cheshire. She is a retired Interior Designer who began writing seriously about fourteen years ago. The idea for her first novel, set in the sixties, was inspired by her time as a teenager, working in a local record store and hanging around with musicians who frequented the business. That first novel evolved into a series set in the fictional town of Pickford, based on her home town of Stockport. Three Steps to Heaven; 'Til I Kissed You; Always On My Mind; Not Fade Away, and That'll Be The Day, follow the lives and loves through the decades of fictional Rock'n'Roll band The Raiders. Pam is a big fan of sixties music and it's this love that compelled her to write the series. A stand-alone true-life romance, Fast Movin' Train, set in the nineties, was published in early 2012. A new series of Fairground Romances, set in the sixties, begins with Cathy's Clown, to be followed by Ruby Tuesday late 2014. Pam is mum to three adult daughters, grandma to seven assorted grandchildren, and roadie to one musician partner. She still lives in Cheshire and also writes short stories and poems which have appeared in charity anthologies and online e-zines. She is currently involved in raising awareness of her home town's musical background with campaigns to have Blue Plaques erected on the walls of local clubs, The Manor Lounge and The Sinking Ship, where the likes of The Walker Brother's, The Who, and Jimi Hendrix played live; now closed, but still firmly in the hearts of Stockport's recycled teenagers.
Update: By popular demand, there will be a sixth Raiders' novel. You Better Move On will be published in spring 2015.
All books are available in Kindle format, paperback, and Fast Movin' Train is also available as an audio book.
