About Pam Logan

I, Pam Logan, live in Western New York with my husband and kids and my trusty dog Sabre. I enjoy reading, writing, gardening and sitting by my self-made pond. On those hot summer days, I love to ride with my husband on our Honda Goldwing as I wind dance to our favorites tunes.

My first book, HOW DO YOU SAY GOODBYE, was at first meant to be a song. As my thoughts kept returning to my mother, my brother-in-law and a couple cousins, who had all passed away due to cancer, the song was too sad to continue. With those thoughts still in mind, I wondered how they must have felt, knowing the end was coming soon.

That is how Samantha Collins, the main character, came to life. I just sat at my computer every chance I got and Sam just took over. She quickly drew me into her life; her friends became my friends, her funny antics made me laugh and her hardships made me cry. There were times that I couldn’t type fast enough to keep up with her.

When the story ended, I missed her and her whole gang terribly, and so, LIFE GOES ON began. It is based on the same family and group of friends, but a totally different genre and story line. I hope to continue writing many different kinds of books revolving around the same characters as they go through the same types of things every family goes through - good times and bad, funny, scary, life threatening, loving, childish and even growing old.

I hope the reader enjoys them as much as I do.

Review by: Jan Brown on Sep. 08, 2011 :
After reading Kim's review of this book I just knew I had to read it as "biker" and "cancer" perked my interest. I had to smile, laugh and cry and loved spunky Sam in the end for her spirit. Sam has brain cancer and wants to die on the beach rather than in the hospital so she gets with an old friend to hop on their motorcycles and make that one last trip to get to the beach. She finds she wants one last thing done before she dies and though I had a good idea of the answer, there is some real surprises thrown in that I never expected to go with it. I love stories that give you a surprise ending! I would love to see more by this author!

This was a fantastic book. Be warned though, it is a major tearjerker. It is a tale about Sam, a woman who had a shocking life and has found out she has an inoperable brain tumour. The story follows her journey to hook up with her old biker 'clan' finishing up at her friends grandparents. Her wish is to die by the beach so they take her to the beach where her friend has a house. More happens along the way but I don't want to spoil it.

I was moved by Sam's plight. I found myself laughing and crying with her. The love all her friends had for her was tangible and I felt it too.

It was a real page turner and got me from the first page. Read it, you won't be disappointed.
