About mePam Torres was born in Logan, Utah and spent most of her childhood in Prairie Village, Kansas. Besides playing Dorothy during tornado weather and digging Peter Pan-like underground forts she also played piano and ran cross-country.

She started her family early, had five energetic and creative children, and returned to school when the last one was four. She has fond memories of reading to and playing with her children in between hefty amounts of volunteering at church and their schools. Several of her favorite activities were doing Writer’s Workshop, updating the art docent program, recruiting volunteers, working as the parent liaison for the curriculum team, publishing articles in the newsletter and directing a very popular after-school art club.

About this time she met and married her current husband, who had a four-year-old son of his own, making them a lopsided Brady Bunch. In college she majored in communication with an emphasis on journalism and writing. As managing editor of the UWT's literary magazine she learned to format, work with editors and produce a quality product. Working as an advertising and contributing editor for Walk About Magazine, she quickly learned that in order to move up in the public relations and advertising fields she was up against stiff competition: twenty-somethings willing to work 80 hours a week. Pam’s children were all blessed with huge teeth for their small mouths so her job search priority became finding the best orthodontia coverage. After researching several companies she took sales management position in downtown Seattle.

Writing was the one constant in her life through all the struggles of single parenthood, step-parent issues and bringing a large family together. She continued to write her brains out in hopes of writing full time one day. After five years in sales, she quit her well -paying job to devote herself to full-time writing. Her supportive husband is her biggest cheerleader and she frequently acknowledges that she couldn’t have done it without him.

Madison Morgan: When Dogs Blog is her debut middle-grade novel. She organized Project Madison around the book’s release and is donating 10% of her proceeds to the ASPCA®, animal shelters and other programs to benefit homeless and abused animals.

About my libraryMy library is very eclectic and I will read anything with compelling characters and interesting premise.
