Pam blends realism and small-town practicality stirred up with intrigue, suspense, and a little murder to bring stories to her readers she hopes will cause them to reflect on their own lives. She weaves her love of reading and her Appalachian [App-a-latch-cha] heritage into a tapestry of snapshots of life she has experienced while growing up in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.
Having family and friends gather at her home on Hobbit’s Bend Farm gives her a chance to enjoy fun fellowship and to experiment with her cooking.
“I’m a wannabe ‘Barefoot Contessa’ Appalachian-home style,” she says with a smile as she stokes the fire of her wood cook stove. “I do love trying out all kinds of dishes from gourmet style to down-home recipes. My hobby interests are eclectic. Besides reading, I enjoy fishing, gardening, knitting, crocheting, quilting, and going to plays, movies, and concerts – folk, rock-n-roll, and blue grass.”
“I am obsessive about reading, though I read slowly. I have a library full of books I want to read, I have read, and will read again. I’ve joined a few reading groups on Goodreads. The group members must think I’m a ghost. I never seem to finish a book within the allotted time. I love learning about authors that are new to me. When I’m writing and creating stories, I like to listen to radio classic shows streamed on Sirius XM on the RadioClassics channel. Sometimes, the characters in my head seem to talk all the time. Thank heavens for the pause button or the replay button,” Pam laughs. “There are days I’m up by four or five in the morning. I’ll have a cup of Joe and settle down into my cozy writing chair where I try to put those voices to paper. It doesn’t always work.”
Pam married her best friend, which has made her life journey all the more fun. After thirty-nine years, Pam and her husband share incredible memories from the birth of their daughter to the building of their dream home. They have seven acres of land they lovingly call Hobbit’s Bend.
“The name of our home and farm is in tribute to my love for J. R. R. Tolkien and his writings. The “Bend” is because we have a large creek that flows around the bend of our property. Our life together on Hobbit’s Bend is full of fun and laughter. My husband is the eternal jokester. His laugh is infectious and he brings great joy to my heart.”
Pam is working on her next book along with a couple of technical writing projects.
“Connect with me. I’d love to talk with you,” Pam says as strolls back into her writing room that looks out over the landscape. She picks up her pen to write. “If you talk with me about your dreams and ideas, I’ll listen.” Pam winks. “Of course, it means you may see them in a future book, too.”
