Pamela Cook - Australian Fiction with a Country Heart

Hi and thank you for visiting.

I’m a city girl with a country lifestyle – and too many horses! My rural fiction novels feature feisty women, tangled family relationships and a healthy dose of romance. My first novel, Blackwattle Lake, was published in 2012 after being selected for the Queensland Writer’s Centre/Hachette Manuscript Development Program. Essie’s Way, my second book, was published in 2013 and Close To Home was released in July 2015. The Crossroads is my latest novel, released November 29, 2016.
