Pamela Lynne grew up in the American South, surrounded by Southern Gothic works by Faulkner, O’Connor and the like. These authors helped shape her evolving mind and continue to influence everything she produces as an adult. It was a Regency-era wit from across the Atlantic, however, who lit a life-long interest in 19th Century England.
Pamela cites Jane Austen as her primary literary influence and she delves into the darker aspects of Regency life in all her novels, most
particularly in The Granville Legacy Series, where she explores the bonds of family and what it costs to break them.
Dearest Friends: A Jane Austen Inspired Novel, Pamela’s debut work, won the Independent Publishers 2016 IPPY Awards Bronze Medal for Romance.
Pamela currently lives in the rolling hills of Tennessee with her husband of more than a decade, five kids, one cat and two entertaining dogs. She is still a Marianne hoping to grow into Elinor, or Clairee from Steel Magnolias.
