Min Edwards – 2016

Min Edwards is the pen name of Archaeologist, former bookstore owner, and proprietor of A Thirsty Mind Book Design, Pam Headrick.

She’s lived in many countries in her life: England, the Philippines, Cuba, Texas (yes, Texas thinks of itself as a separate country), gathering experiences for her writing along the way. She earned Undergraduate and Graduate Degrees from Texas Tech University and The University of Texas at Austin in Anthropology/Archaeology with minors in Art, Geology, and Geography, but spent her early career as an Archaeological Illustrator of some renown.

Radically changing track in 2004, she opened an independent bookstore in an affluent community outside Austin, A Thirsty Mind Words & Wines (one of the first bookstore/wine bars in the country). This started her on the road to careers in bookselling, book formatting and ultimately writing.
