"Welcome to my online haven for book lovers and avid readers alike! I'm Pamela Atherstone, a firm believer in the transformative power of stories. I'm passionate about crafting tales that can transport you to new worlds, ignite your imagination, and stir your emotions. From fiction to non-fiction, my dedication lies in creating works that inspire, educate, and entertain you, the reader."


I began writing for pleasure in 2009 following my retirement and enrolling in the writing class at Modesto Institute for Continued Learning (MICL). This class at MICL was the impetus I needed to take my writing seriously.  Because of the support and encouragement I received, I wrote and published “…Like Footprints in the Wind,” a historical fiction novel based on my ancestral history. I also thoroughly enjoy writing children’s picture books and any story about animals, particularly dogs.

I have been instrumental in the publication of two cookbooks for non-profit entities. Additionally, I’ve had articles printed in The Journal, the international publication of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia. I am working on a sequel to my novel and a compendium of my writings.

I am a member of the Dog Writers Association of America, The National League of American Pen Women, and Northern California Publishers and Authors


 My other interests include horses, dogs, and genealogy. We live in the country with one horse, two dogs, a pot-bellied pig, and numerous barn cats
