About the Author
Rebecca Cale Camhi, a native of West Virginia, earned a BA in English from Marietta College, Marietta, Ohio, and an MLS from SUNY at Buffalo, New York. She was a Fellow of the Western New York Writing Project, at Canisius College, also in Buffalo. This background was ideal preparation for her current professional work as a School Library Media Specialist, as well as her personal work writing poetry and fiction. Her first novel, Deepwater Mountain: A Novel of West Virginia, was published by McClain Printing in 2000. It was very well received, and is in the Appalachian Studies Bibliography for both West Virginia University and Marshall University, Huntington, West Virginia. Some of her poems have been published in the US and in the UK, and one of them garnered third place in an international poetry contest. Several other poems have received editor’s choice awards, and were recorded on poetry CDs. In new novel Deadly Legacy, she combines her coal mining heritage with her interest in conspiracy theories surrounding the JFK assassination. She and her husband live in Buffalo, and have two grown children.
