Pamela grew up as much in Avonlea and Narnia as in England but she eventually moved to Melbourne and the real world, where she became a software developer and dance teacher. But that little girl who loved books was still inside and trying to get out. She eventually did get out (it was messy) and set about writing poetry and books for children – everything from picture books to middle-grade novels. She particularly loves writing humour, fantasy and rhyme. In 2018, she published her absolutely-hilarious-not-scary-at-all chapter book for reluctant readers, Zombies Alive! and is published in three short-story anthologies. Pamela also reviews books for the CBCA publication Reading Time, co-hosts the podcast Middle Grade Mavens and volunteers as a magazine editor. Her greatest loves are her family, her collection of smelly old books and her other collection of even-smellier old ballet shoes.

Pamela homeschools her two boys, who inspire her every day.
