Pamela Humphrey was inspired to write after researching her genealogy. Intending to create a booklet for her mom and immediate family, she set about gathering stories and pictures of the Ramirez family. She ended up writing her first book, Researching Ramirez: On the Trail of the Jesus Ramirez Family, a family history of her great great grandfather’s family. During that research, she found a christening record that ignited her imagination. Using the documentation she’d found as a backbone for the story, she imagined what life was like for her ancestors and wrote The Blue Rebozo, a fictional account of her great grand aunt’s life.
On a road trip, when driving through the Texas Hill Country, the landscape sparked the idea for a book. Weaving mystery, genealogy, and romance, she wrote Finding Claire. Characters are never easy to let go of, so she made it a series and wrote Finding Kate, and Finding Treasure. She continues to write romance–often paired with suspense–set in the Texas Hill Country.
She is a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom who enjoys many creative outlets: sewing, paper-crafting, jewelry-making, reading, and conversing with imaginary characters (what most call writing). She lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her husband, sons, black cats, and leopard gecko.
