Pam was born in Regina, Saskatchewan,
Canada. Her father was a wildlife officer and by the time she was 16 she had lived in almost every region of Canada as
well as a stint in northern Idaho. Her first trip into the wilderness was as an infant on her dad's back. By the time she
was ten years old Pam was more comfortable in the wilderness than civilization. It was here in the wilds she learned the art
of stillness, which she considers to be the source of her creativity. Pam spent 14 years as a syndicated garden writer and
has been published throughout Canada and the United States. Pam spent most of her adult life on the West Coast, including
many years on Vancouver Island and in Washington State. She now lives on Gabriola Island, British Columbia.
