Pam McWilliams is passionate about the Arts. She loves a good story, particularly one that illuminates the complexities of people’s lives or lets her explore the unknown.
Pam grew up in a suburb of New York City and returned to Manhattan after college to work in Corporate Communications. An unexpected job offer from a Wall Street brokerage firm allowed her to buy her first apartment, but, ultimately, she preferred working with words to talking about stocks and bonds. She’s written a modest amount of published short stories–and a not-so-modest amount of unpublished fiction. Her short stories have appeared in several anthologies and one literary magazine, and a new short story, “Road Rage,” will be published after the first of the year. Her play “Twister” was selected for an evening of staged readings meant to increase awareness of domestic abuse.
Home for many years has been in the Dallas area, where she’s mostly raised two children, three dogs, and one husband. She co-hosts an After-school Book Club (The REEL Club) at a south Dallas elementary school because “Reading Empowers Every Life”–and that’s especially true for disadvantaged kids.
