Biographical and Professional Information

Pamela decided to be a writer in the fifth grade. Her first idea was to be a poet, and her first published piece of work was a poem called “After Sorcery,” which appeared in Seventeen Magazine sometime around 1969. However, when she realized that, at the age of thirty, she was still writing very good poetry for a fifteen-year-old, she gave up the idea.

She has a B.A. in English from Carleton College and an M.A. from SUNY-Binghamton, and quotes too much as a result. She wrote her master’s thesis on Shakespeare’s problem plays, and has never really been free of Shakespeare since. Fortunately, he is an enjoyable ghost to have haunting one. She enjoys hiking, gardening, cooking, being an intermittent part of local science-fiction fandom, and attending the theater. She lives in Minneapolis.
