Pamela Ackerson’s storytelling all began with her younger brother, creating wonderful children’s stories on vacation trips to keep him occupied. Later, she started writing poems and short stories as a teen.
Born and raised in Newport, RI where history is a way of life, Pam now lives on the Space Coast of Florida where you are encourage to reach for the stars. She’s just a hop, skip, and jump from Orlando and Disney World, where imagination and fantasy abounds. She has three children, all girls, three grandchildren, and a wonderful husband who puts up with her writer quirks.
Pam may have majored in child psychology with a minor in English, but her distinguished choice of careers never made fruition. Instead, life led her to working in restaurants, interior decorating, owning an advertising business, content editor for a publishing house, teaching and owning a ballroom dance studio, and real estate investments. She is a practicing herbalist and has been involved in the use of natural treatment with raw herbs for over thirty years. As her day job, she currently works as the V.P. of Marketing and Advertising for the book review magazine, Affaire de Coeur.

The Wilderness Series all began with a dream.
Determined to write my first book I started researching about the Cherokee Indians. Piles of research, books loaned from the library, and a foot high pile of spiral notebooks with notes about who I wanted to write about and why. Open encyclopedias, tagged pages lay strewn across the furniture and on the floor of our family room.
It was forced. It felt forced. I wasn’t listening to my voices. I should’ve known better but it had been such a long time, almost twelve years, since I had sat down to write. It was frustrating and I was ready to give up.
Then, the eagles returned. It was mating season. It was comforting, they were always near me. We had them flying overhead, nests in our backyard. They were my eagles.
At first I wasn’t paying attention to the dreams. I was dreaming about eagles. I set it aside as normal, typical… I had seen them earlier that day. That’s why I was dreaming about them. Until they had me fly with them.
Yes. Off I went flying beside them. Three nights in a row they took me to the same spot. Three nights the eagles would turn into Indian warriors after we landed. Three nights I heard them speak to me. It was a place I’d never been, had never seen. What was the dream trying to tell me? Where was I going? The hills were lush and green but in the distance the mountains were dark, almost black. I had no idea but being who I am, I was going to find out.
The rectangular table at the library was covered in books, opened to pictures of mountains from all over the United States. There was one picture from South Dakota that looked familiar. I took the book home and stared at the images of the Black Hills. I knew where I landed. I knew who the warriors were.
I knew who I was going to write about, the Lakota. A year later, with a huge amount of research under my belt, I started writing. Every once in a while the eagles would come back to me in my dreams and I embraced their guidance. I listened. (Yes, my Native American name that was given to me is Spirit Guidance.)
The Wilderness Series is a time travel saga about a modern day surgeon who finds herself in the wilds of Lakota territory, living through the Little Big Horn battle, and finding true love. It will make you laugh, cry, angry, and just about any other emotion you can think of, but in the end, there will be no regrets. A slight cliff-hanger in the first book gives subtle hints which help the reader see that it’s a happy for now.
