Pamela Duncan Edwards grew up in northern England and moved to the United States twenty-five years ago with her husband and two sons. She has lived in the Washington, D.C. area every since. Her father wrote children's stories for magazines in England and his love of children's literature was a huge influence on her. Pamela taught preschool for eleven years in England before becoming a children's librarian when she moved to the United States. Because of her teaching background, Pamela's books present early learning concepts and use many literary devices, but also entertain as they teach. She believes laughter is a great learning tool. For seven years, Pamela has wowed audiences with a wealth of winning tales and continues to inspire young ones to read.
