Pamela Turner divides her time between writing dark genre fiction and being her cat’s human scratching post. Although she started writing in middle school, Pam’s family urged her to get a “real” job. She worked as a secretary, artist model, exotic dancer, and substitute teacher before being hired as a freelance magazine writer. So when her parents told her she’d never make any money writing, they were wrong. Except they’re dead, so it doesn’t matter.  

She’s a member of the Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition (EPIC) and the Romance Writers of America (RWA), including the Louisville Romance Writers, Rainbow Romance Writers, Kiss of Death chapter and Fantasy, Futuristic, and Paranormal chapter.  A screenplay writer, she won second place in The Writers Place Short/Teleplay screenplay competition in 2004 for her short “Cemetery.”

Originally from Wisconsin, Pam moved to Kentucky where the bugs are bigger and allergies aren’t an option but the law. She lives near Louisville with her family and aforementioned feline. Besides writing, she enjoys reading, photography, playing chess (although she’s lousy at the game), studying physics, aviation, the Tarot, and hanging out in cemeteries. And yes, she’s flown a Cessna 152 but never soloed. Not only does she play a abysmal game of chess, she has an even worse sense of depth perception. Takeoffs were fine but she could never master those pesky landings.
