Pamela Turner's writing career began at age 11 when her family moved to a rural town in west-central Wisconsin. Influenced by writers such as August Derleth, H. P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and Stephen King, she penned short horror stories and novellas while her parents disapproved of her career choice. After high school, she attended Mount Senario College where she edited the student newspaper, The Saint, and reviewed performances for a local arts association for the Ladysmith News. Like many an aspiring writer, she majored in English and graduated cum laude.
After college, Pam moved to Louisville,
Kentucky. She worked at various jobs, including bartender, waitress, telemarketer, secretary, receptionist, and substitute teacher before beginning her professional writing career at a local magazine. After two years of freelance writing, Pam decided to reenter the world of fiction, particularly novel and screenplay writing. Her short
screenplay, Cemetery, won second place in The Writers Place short screenplay
contest, and she has written two full-length scripts. A participant in NaNoWriMo, she wrote two novels and discovered that she's a plotter and not a pantster. She's also published a few poems and had a 10-minute play locally produced. She is a member of the RWA and focuses on writing paranormal romances.
Pam lives with her husband,
daughter, and black cat. She collects dragons and swords, and enjoys going for
walks in old cemeteries. She's also accident prone and not allowed around heavy machinery. That's okay. She'd rather be on the computer.
