Pamela Clare writes historical romance and comtemporary romantic suspense books. She loves history, having studied Archaeology in college, and has traveled extensively, living for almost three years in Denmark, which feels like home to her. She attributes her love of historical romance with the years she spent visiting ruins and castles in Europe. She says: "I love nothing more than the moment my characters come alive in their own time period and begin interacting with the world they inhabit. Through them, I am able to travel to other times and places -- colonial America, 18th-century Ireland, the Viking age".
She began her writing career as a columnist and investigative reporter and eventually became the first woman editor-in-chief of two different newspapers. Along the way, she and her team won numerous state and national honors, including the First Amendment Award and the National Journalism Award for Public Service. This year, she was honored by the Colorado Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists with their Keeper of the Flame Lifetime Achievement Award for her work. As romance novelist is a RITA finalist (Surrender, 2006) and a three-time Daphne du Maurier finalist (I-Team series).
A single mother with two teenage sons, Alec and Benjamin, she lives in Boulder, Colorado, next to the unbelievable beauty of the Rocky Mountains. She loves to hike and enjoys watching birds and wildlife with her two sons. Her other interests include drawing and painting, quilting, listening to music, horseback riding, world travel and reading.
