Writer Biography

At the age of six Pamela Turton was already writing proper stories, all essentially medieval romances. She was spurred on by winning a prize in a Brooke Bond (the Tea Company) Creative Writing Competition a few years later. Being mocked by Big Sister for waking up in the middle of the night to scribble poetry, and brought to the Headmaster’s office for using the word ‘voluptuous’ in a poem submitted to the school magazine did not deter her.
Teaching got in the way.

Member of a huge Northern tribe, Mum and teacher turned author Pamela Turton has published four novels: ‘So Sister,’ Selling Short’, ‘The Life Coach Less Travelled’, ‘Blue Is the Object’ as well as poetry and non-fiction. Find out more about her work and 5 star reviews here: and her website:

Her fifth novel, (Crime novella) is due to be released in May 2018.
