At an early age Pamela loved to read, her local bookmobile introducing her to the wonderful world of books. Pamela went on to work in libraries and now she is writing books. I was very happy to be asked to read and review her book Damaged and also in the pipeline is an interview with Pamela – so be sure to keep an eye out for it. A guest post will also be up very shortly.

In the meantime please visit Pamela’s author profile by clicking here where you will find links to her website, info about her book Damaged and a link to her Goodreads profile.

And to get the ball rolling here is a little bit of background on Pamela from her website:

I was born in Ontario, Canada, the youngest child of two immigrants. My mother emigrated from East Germany after World War II. My British father was hired to work as an engineer on the ill-fated Avro Arrow project.

At the age of two, my family moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Growing up by the ocean has shaped my life, and has, in turn, shaped my writing. I attended the University of King’s College, where I took the Foundation Year Program, studying the greatest works of Western Civilization. I graduated with an undergraduate degree in English Literature. Following that, I studied law and was admitted to the Nova Scotia Bar. I’ve always had an interest in public policy, so I returned to university to complete a Master’s Degree in Public Administration.

I then worked as a strategy consultant for an international consulting firm, travelling all over North America. When I had my first child, my local office closed. I decided to stay home with my young family, a period in my life for which I am very grateful. It also gave me an opportunity to exhume an old passion: writing.

I’m very happy to annouce coming up in a few weeks will be an interview with Teresa Geering, author of The Eye of Erasmus. In the meantime please get to know Teresa a little by visiting her author profile on my website by clicking here. Teresa has also kindly agreed to do a guest post for me so make sure you keep your eyes open for what should be a great post.

And a little something from Teresa’s website to get you started:

My name is Teresa Geering; I grew up in Hastings and was tutored by nuns in a convent.

I spent many days walking barefoot for miles – through choice. (Think hippy and you wont be far wrong.

I then went to Orpington near London in my teens. This is where I met my first husband but the outskirts of London was in my blood and we moved to the South East of England – farming country with wellies provided! I then married a second time, had a son and became a stay-at-home mum.

I then worked and continue to work as a volunteer for Kent Police.

It was in my quieter moments as I sat in my garden sipping wine one balmy summer evening that I started to write and completed a trilogy of books for young adults set in a fantasy time travelling world.

All three books were completed within the year.

In the meantime I give you the following to read over:

Writer, Carrie King’s Idyllic Life came to an abrupt end in April 2000, when her husband and childhood sweetheart was killed in a horrific accident at work.
