Pamela Turner divides her time between writing paranormal and urban fantasy and being her cat’s human scratching post.
After graduating from college, she worked as a secretary, artist model, exotic dancer, and substitute teacher before being hired as a freelance magazine writer for two local publications. After two years of interviewing people, she decided to return to writing fiction. In 2004 she participated in her first National Novel Writing Month challenge, completing a short vampire novel. In 2008 she wrote Death Sword, which was contracted by Lyrical Press in 2010. A screenplay writer, she won second place in The Writers Place Short/Teleplay screenplay competition in 2004 for her short screenplay “Cemetery.”
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, Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal and Kiss of Death chapters.
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), physics, aviation, the Tarot, and hanging out in cemeteries.
Making a deal with the Devil is the least of his problems.
Zaphkiel, a chain-smoking, hard-drinking archangel, never intended to unleash the sun demon upon the city. Bad enough his boss wants him dead, and this recent crime is the perfect excuse. The timing couldn’t be worse. Somehow, Zaphkiel’s executed lover, Caliel, is alive and reincarnated as Sean. Zaphkiel is thrilled to be reunited with Caliel again, but will his lover feel the same when he learns Zaphkiel’s darkest secret?
Hired by Lucifer, Sean wants nothing more than to fit in. But how can he compete when the Devil’s friends include archangels and a Tarot reader, and he was born without special abilities? Or so he believes. The Tarot hints there may be more to him than he realizes.
Recruited by the Devil to find the two pentacles sun demon Sorath plans to use to destroy the universe, Zaphkiel and Sean find themselves pawns in a game of power and control. If the archangel gives his boss the pentacles, Ophaniel will overlook his crime. But Zaphkiel knows he can’t trust either Ophaniel or Sorath, and the deal he’s made with the Devil could cost him not only his life, but also the lover he believed gone forever.

The only thing more dangerous than an angel of death is one obsessed with vengeance.
Karla Black has always known she’s different from other people. She learns just how different after she's fatally stabbed and brought back to life as a half-human angel of death.
With newfound power comes a newfound boss.
Samael despises her. He considers Karla impure and resents her relationship with her partner Xariel…who also happens to be Samael's ex-lover. When he takes that hatred to a higher level, Karla vows vengeance - a task easier said than done.
With the loss of their angelic powers, Karla and Xariel face a dilemma – how will they defeat an unstoppable Samael, whose poisoned rapier can kill human and angel alike?
If Karla doesn’t awaken to her true identity, both heaven and earth are in danger of annihilation.
