Dee Ann Palmer
Dee Ann Palmer's love of language and words began as a small child while listening to her mother practice as a member of the Texas Storytellers Association. Later, the King James language of the Bible and Shakespeare's works increased her fascination. Lonely as a child, she entertained herself by making up stories, first writing them down when she was eight.
Although a registered nurse with bachelor's and master's degrees, she didn't realize she was also a writer until she mailed an article cold to a magazine. They bought and published it, and, soon after, she won First Award for Writing from RN magazine. After such encouragement, even marriage, a career and children couldn't squelch her need to write. She wrote while her family slept and the night birds sang.
Now an award-winning, multi-published author in fiction and non-fiction, her focus in recent years has been on tales of romance, murder and suspense. "Where Eagles Cry" is her first publication as an independent author.
Palmer is a member of the Published Author Network of Romance Writers of America (RWA-PAN) and Sisters in Crime. She was a Guideposts Writers Workshop winner, and in 2002 The National League of American Pen Women honored her as Pen Woman of the Year.
She's married to her college sweetheart, and they live in southern California.
