Pamela Tuck is a native of Greenville, NC.
She was inspired to become a writer after her grandfather,
the storyteller in the family, captivated her with his tales. When she was a child, Pamela remembers entertaining her family by recording her own voice and telling “made up silly stories.” She won her first poetry contest in elementary school and continued
to write short stories and plays. Most of Pamela's ideas come from her family and life experiences. She says  “I have such a rich family history. . . there’s not enough room for it all on paper.”

Pamela is the 2007 Lee & Low Books New Voices Award winner for her children's book,
As Fast As Words Could Fly

I hope my books offer inspiration. They often reflect life experiences, thus being written from the heart. Each reader is invited to take a journey into the lives of my characters, and witness the struggles they face within their own communities. But more importantly, I hope each reader is encouraged to embrace diversity and have the courage to make a difference.
