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 had no choice but to become an outlaw. Maybe that's why in her stories, even the good guys wear black hats.

For the past thirty years, she's stayed two steps ahead of a lynch mob as an award-winning journalist. She also has ghost-written or edited several nonfiction books.

In addition to her gig in the news biz, these days she also blogs at Prairie Rose Publications, Petticoats and Pistols, Sweethearts of the West, and Western Fictioneers.

A Texan to the bone, when Kathleen's not being a nuisance she bows to the whims of the Hole in the Web Gang — a herd of tiny but enthusiastic outlaws with four legs.
