EQ: Welcome to EQ! Tell us a little bit about yourself!
Pamela: Hi! I’ve been a huge reader since I was a kid back when there were only three TV channels and kids programming was only on Saturday morning. Reading fast became my refuge and later, dreaming about stories I would write later on. I started out reading the Gothic romances my mother gave me, then science fiction and fantasy. Later, when I was grown with my own young children, I fell in love with the romance genre.
EQ: Tell us a little bit about your most recent release.
Pamela: Grave Danger is the first book in my Blue Star Baby Trilogy. Essentially the first book in a ‘post apocalyptic zombie killing love story.’ Nineteen years old, Maverick Dunne was one of a select group of babies born under a radioactive ‘blue’ star in the midst of a nuclear winter. A ‘re-animator’ she is able to bring all sorts of nasty dead things back to life. She is kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend, mutant destroyer, Daniel Wolfe. Together they travel to the site of the first nuclear blasts to stop the development of virus created zombie soldiers.
EQ: What has been the most exquisite moment of your life?
Pamela: I’m so blessed. Actually, I’ve had three. The moment I realized my husband and I were in love, and at each moment my daughters were born.
EQ: What was your defining moment as a writer?
Pamela: The day I got the calls for my book Spirited Away by the RITA coordinator—I’d finaled in 2 categories: Best First Book and Best Paranormal.
EQ: Pick out one of the best lines in your novel. What do you love about it?
Pamela: “Two knives, a long sword at his side, and an ion blaster hanging low on his hip—the evidence was clear and my throat dried up to dust—the love of my life was a killer.”
EQ: What are your top three guilty pleasures?
Pamela: Dark chocolate
Playing solitaire when I should be writing
Benedict Cumberbatch as BBC’s Sherlock (totally)
EQ: Which of your characters do you connect with the most and why?
Pamela: In Grave Danger, Maverick Dunne is totally me (if I were nineteen again, could bring stuff back to live and be a kickass heroine!) She’s had a rough life but compassion still thrives in her. (As a nurse for many years I have to say, compassion is the one thing that has guided me and I’m so thankful for it.)
EQ: What kinds of male characters do you prefer to write?
Pamela: Broken. I like guys that need the heroine to save/heal them. A combination of Alpha when they need to be and Beta when the heroine needs them to be, too. Stubborn to a point, but forgiving when they need to be. Oh and hot. Totally hot. (wink!)
