BIOGRAPHY International bestselling author, and time travel adventurer Pamela Ackerson was born and raised in Newport, RI where history is a way of life. Pam lives on the Space Coast of Florida, a hop, skip, and jump from Orlando, where imagination and fantasy abounds. She has three children, all girls, three grandchildren and a wonderful husband. (Obviously, don't we all say that?) But, it is true and she will be the first to admit it. He is a wonderful husband and she has concrete, undeniable proof. She has not plotted his demise ... yet.
Pam may have majored in child psychology with a minor in English, but her distinguished choice of careers never made fruition. Instead life led her to working in restaurants, interior decorating, owned an advertising business, content editor for a publishing house, owned a ballroom dance studio, and real estate investments. Pam is a practicing herbalist and has been involved in the use of natural treatment with raw herbs for almost thirty years. As her day job, she currently works as the V.P. of Marketing and Advertising for the book review magazine, Affaire de Coeur.
