Kathleen Rice Adams
Descended from a long line of Texas ranchers, preachers, and teachers on one side and Kentucky horse thieves and moonshiners on the other, Kathleen Rice Adams is an outlaw to the bone. For the past thirty years, she’s stayed two steps ahead of a lynch mob as an award-winning news and features writer, editor, and columnist.
When she’s not chasing the news, she commits crimes against fiction. Her short novella The Second-Best Ranger in Texas won the prestigious Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Award for Best Western Short Fiction. Her debut novel, Prodigal Gun, won the EPIC Award for Historical Romance and is the only novel-length western historical romance ever to be nominated for a Peacemaker.
