Pamela was born in New Jersey and grew up in Tucson, Arizona, where she graduated from the University of Arizona. After decades of working in both the corporate technical and creative worlds all over the U.S., she has returned to writing, substitute teaching in the Ouray and Ridgway, Colorado school districts , and also works part-time for the non-profit Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership. Pamela has two amazingly successful children, a son and a daughter, and is blessed with four beautiful grandchildren, who have been the inspiration for her books. She has lived in many places across the country, one of her favorite being Eagle River, Alaska. After moving back to Colorado from Alaska, Pamela settled just outside of the quaint town of Ridgway, at the base of the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado.
