Colorado Authors -- Robin Owens and Deb Stover

My list of Colorado authors is growing instead of shrinking. As a result, I'm featuring two award-winning authors today, both multi-published in romance and cross-genre romance/mystery/paranormal/fantasy/etc.


Robin Owens writes fantasy and futuristic novels of romance. She has more than fifteen books published or scheduled for upcoming release. The most recent is Heart Change, the eighth novel in this series.

"The story of Cratag Maytree, a guardsman, and Signet D'Marigold who has a strange and unusual talent...their protection of prodigy Avellana Hazel and their love despite their differences."

Visit Robin at her website, or drop by her blog On Writing & Publishing.


Deb Stover's latest release, The Gift, is a cross-genre mixture of romance, mystery, and ghosts. By my count on her website's book page, The Gift is Deb's fourteenth novel. It features Beth Dearborn, a former Chicago homicide detective. From Deb's website:

"A gift turned nightmare drives Beth Dearborn to abandon all she holds dear, until fate demands she face Ty Malone, danger, and destiny...."

Deb's website contains her presentation and signing schedule as well as reviews and information on the rest of her books.

If you have gifts to buy for readers of these genres, consider these two fine Colorado authors who have been recognized with several awards for their work.

Both sound wonderful, Pat. I don't think you can go wrong giving books for Christmas. Now when I don't give books . . . people complain! : ) Thanks for the post.

I'll look for them and have put a sticky in my wallet. They sound interesting.

I also love giving books as gifts, Drue, especially to the kids on my list. If I have to go shopping, there's nowhere I'd rather do it than in a bookstore.

Both books sound wonderful. And I am constantly amazed by the bookcovers on books being published. Makes me wish I had artistic talent. Both of these are great - and a cover can make a big difference in sales, I think.

These are excellent bookcovers, I agree. Since I'm often drawn to the covers first, in bookstores and in libraries, I think they're pretty darned important.

Thanks for the suggestions on books to offer as gifts. Is it this weekend that you shall meet Jeanie, another blogger friend who loves your writing?

No, unfortunately that didn't work out so well. The signing was supposed to be in Denver and I was up here in Northern Colorado where we received a lovely snow dump just in time to keep me off the roads. I'm hoping our mystery panel will be rescheduled at the Broadway Book Mall after the first of the year, so maybe we'll have another chance then.
