ABOUT

Pam 1 green.jpeg

    Surprisingly, I did not read as much as many of my author friends growing up. I spent endless hours outside playing sports and games with my sister and the neighborhood kids. 

   I did love library days in elementary school. The idea of getting to borrow a book was the best! Picking out a book back then included liking the cover and then smelling the pages. If I didn't like how the book smelled, I put it back. Most books, then and now, pass my nose test! 

    While reading as a child, I discovered that books could make me laugh, cry, and inspire me. I hope that the picture books and middle grade novels I write will make readers laugh and inspire them - and maybe cry occasionally, but in a good way. 

     I also aspire to help other creators on their publishing journeys as a member of the board of directors at The Writers’ Loft, the director of the SCBWI Whispering Pines Writers’ Retreats, and as the Assistant Regional Advisor for SCBWI-NE. Writers and illustrators are awesome!
