Pamela Crane is a professional juggler. Not the type of juggler who can toss flaming torches in the air, but a juggler of four kids, a writing addiction, a horse rescuer, and a book editor by trade. She lives on the edge (ask her Arabian horse about that—he’ll tell you all about their wild adventures while trying to train him!) and she writes on the edge. Her characters and plots are her escape from the real world of dirty diapers and cleaning horse stalls, and she thrives off of an entertaining tale.

Authors supporting authors is an effective way to promote each other and thus expand word-of-mouth about each others' books. I've cross-promoted with fellow authors on Goodreads and we both saw excellent sales increases.

As a reader, I love that I can find new "undiscovered" books to enjoy. Goodreads offers the best of both worlds--fresh talent to discover for readers, and plenty of networking for writers.(less)

“lips wide with the smile that only fatherhood can bring. I was meant for this. I allowed a vision to permeate my mind’s eye… a picture of me nestling my namesake to my chest, my firstborn son, my legacy. I had always considered my film projects to be my fame, my future. Forever my name etched”
Pamela Crane, A Fatal Affair

“I had battled my own demons that day, facing down the thing that imprisoned me since the accident-a scar and the diffidence it created inside of me. But it was just a physical blemish, not something that made me who I am. It took a mentally disturbed murderer who gave me a sneak peak at death to show me that.”
Pamela Crane, A Secondhand Life

“A row of daffodils and red tulips nestled against the walkway beneath my feet. Stray weeds peeked up through the cracks in the concrete, a reminder that that nature had the final say. No matter how much mankind bulldozed or built, all was vulnerable to Mother Nature's whims.”
Pamela Crane, A Secondhand Life
