Pam Eaves is married with two grown-up sons and lives in the Epping Forest area of Essex. She began writing at the age of 60 whilst still working as a legal secretary, and entered her first essay in a competition organised by Age Concern. It was placed second and published in their anthology and her second essay was published in the June 1997 edition of the new writer magazine. When she retired at 65 Pam began writing full time, concentrating mainly on short stories. Since then, she has had many of her stories, and some poems and articles, published in various magazines and anthologies.
Having entered short stories for an Earlyworks Press competition, Pam was delighted to have four of them published in their subsequent anthologies, Survival Guides, with islands in mind and the most recent, Rogue Symphonies and she then joined the EWP Writers’ Forum, deriving tremendous benefit from the critiques of other writers in an extremely friendly atmosphere.
When Kay Green, the editor of EWP, set up Circaidy Gregory Press in order to give new writers an opportunity to present their work under their own name, Pam was invited to collate a selection of her short stories for publication, and thanks Kay for the opportunity and valuable assistance and advice she has given throughout the preparation of Light in the Shade.
Pam now leads a Writer’s Group under the auspices of the local branch of the University of the Third Age (U3A) and also paints.
