Pamela B Cherry

Biography

I was born and educated in Ireland. I had a lovely life growing up . Always loved the outdoors spending summers by the sea. I played lots of tennis, hockey and every spare moment was spent with horses. I finished my school education at Dundalk Grammar School and unlike many kids sent to boarding schools, I absolutely loved it. I emigrated to Canada and became a Canadian citizen. Growing up, like most kids I had a vivid imagination. I would spend hours reading and writing stories. Unfortunately the demands of life, earning a living and my joy of being outdoors at every opportunity, took my mind away from writing. I relocated to Ireland in 1986 and discovered that I had a bit of a talent for painting. The new millennium brought me into a new chapter of my life, met and married Robert and moved from Ireland to live in France in 2007 and spend the winters in Florida. My love for the USA is bottomless - having been a native indian in a past life .... but that's another story. Over the past few years I have found time to write. Now that Robert and I are of retirement age there seems to be so much more to do, and the days are just not long enough! Deja Vu is my second novel.... but not the last.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Ireland, Dublin born, then my family moved to 'the Garden of Ireland' known as Wicklow. I was packed off to boarding school north of the country to Dundalk Grammar School. I absolutely loved my years there. I have only happy memories of growing up, summers in a caravan by a big sand dune by the sea at Brittas Bay, apple pies and ice cream and riding my bike. My Dad was hard working, loved gardening, the countryside and the seaside. My Mum was at home caring for my two elder sisters and me. When we moved to Wicklow I was about nine years of age, my sisters had married and so I enjoyed the life of an only child. I spent all of my free time at a big country hotel where there was an equestrian centre. I used to cycle there every day (about five miles) and work with the horses, clean stables and tack and hope that I would be rewarded with a free ride in the afternoon.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing stories when I was about nine. I was the bain of my teacher because she would set the class to write a one or two-page 'composition' and mine always ended up six to ten pages of a story. My grammar and spelling was not the best in those days, so she had a lot of correcting to do!
