Pam Howes is a native of Stockport that was born a few years after the end of the Second World War. The author has come to be known for writing family sagas for a mature audience.

Her indie work has a rock and roll flavor and appeals to most audience groups. She has asserted that in the future she would like to pen a crime thriller if she has the time for it.

While Pam was an avid reader for most of her life, writing is not something she ever planned on doing. In fact, she ran an interior design business that was very successful before she became an author.

It was only in her late forties that she started putting down ideas she had for articles. It was from these articles that she expanded and ultimately penned her debut novel.

Pam published her debut novel “Three Steps to Heaven” in 2009 and has not looked back since. She now has more than 20 works to her name across several series, single-standing novels, and collections of short stories.

he loves to call herself a mother of three daughters and grandmother to seven grandchildren that is still at heart a Sixties Girl.

While Pam Howes enjoyed reading the likes of Enid Blyton as a child, writing is not something she saw herself doing as an adult. Nonetheless, she had her fun with trips to Kirrin Island, Uncle Quentin, and Aunt Fanny not to mention Ginger Beer lashings.

Upon graduating from school, she decided to find a career in something more exciting and found work at a recording studio.

But she soon found that making coffee for stars did not have a clear path to following in the footsteps of Geroge Martin or Phil Specter. Howes quit and found a job at a local record store and it is from that time that her life took on a new meaning.

She kicked her books to the side as she devoured “Roxy, Oh Boy,” and “New Musical Express” magazines.

She got to hang around boys that left school and started bands. Pam was also involved in the writing of lyrics some of which would become hit songs for some boy bands. She had a lot of fun going to clubs and getting free passes to exclusive events and parties.

She even had the honor of meeting then-young celebrities such as Rod Stewart, Jimi Hendrix, the Small Face, and Reggie Dwight, a chubby guy that would later be known as Elton John.

Hanging around music-minded people and groups ultimately turned out to be Pam Howes’ inspiration when she had a midlife crisis.

She abandoned the interior design career as she decided to write articles for music magazines. It was from this that was born the idea for her rock and roll novels starting with three Steps to Heaven.

Howes has said that her greatest thrill is when she is compared to her favorite authors such as Joanna Trollope and Lesley Pearse.

She has had the honor of rubbing shoulders with many bestselling authors on the Amazon charts and could not be happier with how far she has come.

While she initially planned on writing just one novel, she has become quite prolific. In 2012, she published “Fast Moving Train,” a stand-alone novel that also did very well on Amazon Kindle.

She is happy to be an Indie author as she gets to choose her cover designers and editors and can work at her own pace without having to follow house style.
