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.
Pamela lost her dear husband, Joel Tuck, on November 11, 2014 after 18 years of marriage and 22 years of friendship. Joel was a loving husband, father, and friend. He will be deeply missed.
Joel was a native of Philadelphia, PA. He joined his wife in the field of writing in 2005, when he became the voice behind "Sheldon".
Joel studied various writing styles and techniques. He collaborated his research with Pamela's writing, and provided essential ideas for character and plot development.
Pamela claimed him to be the "fire" behind her writing.
