Raised in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, but forever longing for the white sands of her 'native' New Mexico, Pamela loves mysteries and the macabre. Hours spent watching 'Monster Movie Matinee', 'Twilight Zone', 'The Night Stalker', 'In Search Of... ' and a myriad of Hammer Films probably helped, too.

Pamela proudly claims the title of a 7x great grand niece to Rebecca Towne Nurse of Salem Village, MA. Her many years of research into the subject have been an inspiration to her writing. Witches, both good and bad, play a predominant role in several of her novels.

I have a goal I try to reach on the weekends and another goal for during the week and if I don't make them, I don't stress about it. I let the characters come to me when they are ready. I may not write anything for months, then suddenly, I'll write a lot for another month. (less)

“The Story Of Your Life: The world and everyone you meet will not revolve around you. You're not always going to get what you want. You are going to make compromises every single day. You're going to get smacked down a time or two, or three, or fifty. Throwing tantrums, sitting in the corner pouting and crying over what you didn't get that you wanted isn't going to help you get it. Likewise, pissing and moaning to other people about it all being so unfair. We're all in the same boat, my friends. You can chose to sit in the corner and sulk your life away, crying about the unfairness of it all, bemoaning how everyone is making you miserable, or you can do just the opposite. You can stand up and BE GRATEFUL for everything you do have. You can look back and see how many obstacles you've already overcome, realizing that with each conquest you've become a stronger person. You can realize that your happiness is not and should never be dependent on other people. None of us is going to get out of this Story alive, dear reader. Make the best of the time you have. Make a positive difference. Make your own happily ever after.”
Pamela Morris

“Horror writers shouldn't play nice. Disturb & unnerve your reader. Make them uncomfortable, but not so much they stop reading.”

“No person, relationship, or religion should complete you. They can enhance whatever is already there, but completion of the self comes from within, not from anything beyond that.”
