Amelia C. Adams is the author of twenty-five sweet Western romance novels, the mother of four children, and the eater of chocolate cake and tacos. Many tacos. Too many tacos to count. Because cheese. And meat. Meat and cheese.
She has hit the Amazon bestseller list three times and has the screenshots to prove it. Even though she’s only been publishing Westerns for two years, she plans to do it forever and ever, or until the cows come home, whichever happens first. She credits her own pioneer heritage for this new interest, and is glad that she doesn’t have to wear twelve petticoats to be considered modest.

Hi! I'm Kristin Holt, USA Today Bestselling Author.
I write frequent articles (or view recent posts easily on my Home Page) about the nineteenth century American West–every subject of possible interest to readers, amateur historians, authors…as all of these tidbits surfaced while researching for my books. I blog monthly at Sweet Romance Reads, Sweet Americana Sweethearts, and Romancing the Genres.

I love to hear from readers! Please drop me a note. Or find me on Facebook.

A transplanted Scot, Margery now lives on a lake in Canada.

Although she grew up as far away from the old west as possible, she’s always had a love affair with the men and women who settled the untamed land west of the Mississippi. Glued to TV westerns like Maverick, Rawhide and Gunsmoke, and reading stories of Annie Oakley, Roy Rogers and Rin Tin Tin, it was only natural that when she started writing, she wrote what she loved to watch and read. When she’s not writing or travelling in search of the perfect setting for her next novel, you can usually find her wielding a pair of knitting needles or a pool cue.

Amelia's Top Ten List
1.   When I was growing up ... I loved to make things out of paper. Little houses, dolls, books … I’ve always been in love with paper.
2.   I once ... wore a plastic alligator nose in public. Because it was fun.
3.   Readers would be surprised to know I ... never even dreamed of writing Westerns. I’ve done historical fiction, but Westerns had never crossed my radar until Kirsten Osbourne suggested I give it a try. And now this novella is my 25th Western release!
4.   Every day I ... check my emails before I do anything else. It’s like my brain can’t function otherwise.
5.   I like to ... take really long naps during the day because I don’t sleep well at night. I think I must be a vampire. The kind that doesn’t drink blood.
6.   I have always wanted to ... be a singer. Sadly, that’s not a talent I have.
7.   I will never forget ... marrying the love of my life back in 1995. And he’s even more handsome now than he was back then.
8.   The best thing about writing is ... I can make anything in the world happen. Oh, and I also love the surprises when the characters take over and tell me what *really* happened.
9.   When I am not writing, I like to ... think about writing! And also watch movies. And take naps.

10.               I am working on … I have several more planned in the Kansas Crossroads series, and River’s End Ranch is going strong. I have about four more books planned for the Hearts of Nashville series, plus a secret series that hasn’t been announced yet … kind of crazy, huh?

Snippet from The Echo of Music

Orinda Lou Britt stood on her front porch, scanning the horizon for the tell-tale plume of smoke that would tell her the train was coming. She felt quite ridiculous at being so excited, but she couldn’t help it. It had been a year since her piano had been tuned, and she was desperate to have it done. And the fact that it was Nathan Perry who would be tuning it had nothing to do with that excitement whatsoever.
At last she saw the smoke, and a moment later, the whistle sounded. She imagined it would take Nathan about fifteen minutes to disembark, grab his bag, and walk the few blocks to her house, so she went back inside, smoothed her dark hair, and made sure the tea kettle was hot. Then she sat on the edge of the sofa in her parlor and waited.
For forty-five minutes.
Had he missed the train? Had she read the telegram wrong? She pulled it out and checked, but no—he gave the date and the time. She shook her head. What could be keeping him?
At last she heard his boots crunching up her lane, and her heart gave a mighty leap. She’d almost given in to the belief that he’d been attacked by robbers or something.
“Miss Britt, forgive me,” Mr. Perry said when she opened the door. “I stopped at the Brody for something to eat.”
“Of course,” she replied, holding the door open wider so he could enter. That was a relief—his delay was perfectly natural, and not brought about by bandits and evildoers. “I’m sure you were quite hungry. Would you like some tea as well?”
