Pamela Hinkson (19 November 1900 – 26 May 1982) was an Irish writer.

Hinkson was the daughter of Katharine Tynan and barrister Henry Albert Hinkson (1865–1919). She was widely published[1] and her book, The Ladies' Road (1932), sold over 100,000 copies in the Penguin edition.[2]

Under the pseudonym of Peter Deane, Hinkson wrote The Victors (1925) and Harvest (1927) set during and after the First World War.[3] The identity of 'Peter Deane' was revealed by the writer Hugh Cecil following research into his 1995 book The Flower of Battle: British Fiction Writers of the First World War.

Her last publication was Golden rose in 1944.

She died on 26 May 1982 aged 81.[4]
