Bio: Pamela Cummings has been fascinated by the drama of American?s past since she was a child. Growing up in a history-buff family, she read both history and fiction of all varieties. Undergraduate and graduate degrees in American History, separated by a stint as a market research analyst, turned the interest into a full-blown passion. Eight years ago she decided to combine her love of history and fiction and has been writing both historical mysteries and historical romances while keeping research going for non-fiction books on the Civil War. Her novels include My Rebel Belle, An Affair Of Honor, The Old Maid And The Sea, and the soon-to-be-released Duty, Honor, Murder, all from Amber Quill Press.
