Pam is a writer and storyteller ("Lady Amuck") who lives with her husband in Asbury Park, NJ. She does not suffer from empty-nest syndrome, whatsoever, after raising three boys!
Pam taught drama overseas, as well as being founder of many writing groups in the states, England, and Singapore. Her family was lucky enough to live in England for four years and Singapore for eighteen months.
While in Singapore, Pam was privileged to be asked by Singapore General Hospital to entertain (as "Lady Amuck") at Raffles Hotel for a benefit for children suffering from leukemia and lymphoma. It was an extremely moving experience, one that touched her heart tremendously. She still thinks about those precious children and their families.
Pam is currently in the process of writing a book concerning memoirs of her family's hilarious exploits as expatriates.
While living in Savannah, Pam wrote The Hannah Savannah Series for Children ("Hannah Savannah Finds the Missing Key," "Bully for Hannah Savannah!" "and "Hannah Savannah's Favorite Tales"). Her purpose was to delight tourists concerning the adventures of a local ten-year-old girl living in a rowhouse in downtown Savannah. To this day, many teachers and students are using the book to teach diversity, tackle bullying, and for use in teaching creative writing to children.
Pam's written short children's stories and poems in The Public Pamphet (NJ), and essays concerning expatriate life in The American (England).
"Pen-to-Paper" Writers was founded in Virginia by Pam while she lived in the state.. She no longer is in charge of it as she has moved back to NJ.
