About the Author

K.T. Blakemore grew up in the west and never left. Her novels The Good Time Girls and The Good Time Girls Get Famous are the first in the Wild-Willed Women of the West Series, featuring women who take no prisoners and succeed through sheer grit, determination, and a parcel of luck.

Under the pen name Kim Taylor Blakemore, she is the author of the historical thrillers The Companion, The Deception, and After Alice Fell. Her YA historical novels include Bowery Girl and Cissy Funk.

Awards include a Willa Literary Award, A Tucson Festival of Books Literary Award, Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award, and was a finalist in the New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards and the Pencraft Awards.

She has hung her hat in California, Colorado, and currently the Pacific Northwest. The rain does not deter her research whether it be train timetables from 1905 or the best way to catch a loose horse.
