Pamela writes overly long e-mails, the What Doesn’t Kill You romantic mysteries, and (possibly) hilarious nonfiction. She resides deep in the heart of Nowheresville, TX and way up in the frozen north of Snowheresville, WY. Pamela is passionate about hiking with her hunky husband and pack of rescue dogs (and an occasional goat and donkey), riding her gigantic horses, experimenting with her Keurig, and traveling in the Bookmobile.

Pamela’s mysteries have won a lot of awards, from the 2017 Silver Falchion for Best Adult Mystery WINNER (Fighting for Anna) to the 2016 and 2015 WINNERS for USA Best Books Fiction: Cross Genre (Hell to Pay, Heaven to Betsy). With downloads of nearly 2,000,000 for the What Doesn’t Kill You series, readers seem to enjoy her smart, sassy female sleuths.

    So, as you were poking around my blog, leaving a few comments, I was poking around yours, being the total creep-o who doesn’t comment. 🙂 I clicked over after I saw your follow in Twitter.

    Then I got your comment notification via email. Um, so, yeah, here’s me, trying NOT to be creepy, saying hello. 🙂 Nothing better than meeting a smart girl actively working at NOT working in law.

    Nice to meet you!

    Hi Pamela,
    I am a journalism student at NYU and am writing my final piece on ADHD medications. I need to speak to a parent on a child who is on meds. Does your son take them? If so could I ask you a few questions about it?

    I love having met you. I’ve been here, at your blog, for the past 25 mins.

    I met you through an emergency email alert from erin margolin re posting to blogher. By accident.

    And I had to meet the woman who is in the dork at the keyboard sisterhood like me.



    So, you were primed for instant love right there.
    And, now, going over your old posts?

    Oh, yeah, I’m subscribing.

    Beyond lovely to meet you. You have a definite style that I can see easily coming across into books.

    I’m on the same writer’s road: right now, in a writer’s group, and an online class, and writing everyday.

    To get the story down.

    Lovely to know you.
