Local author hits Denver best-seller lists

Cheyenne writer Pam Nowak joined the likes of John Grisham and Stephen King on the Denver Post’s list of local best-sellers on Feb. 23. I bought a copy of Pam’s novel (her first one) that same day at City News in Cheyenne. I showed up a half hour after the signing started and got the last copy of the book, already in its second printing. In the interest of full disclosure: Pam is in my writing group.

Here’s the entire Denver Post listing:
