More About the Author

Pamela (Pam) Mordecai was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and educated there at Convent of Mercy Alpha Academy. Alpha was one of the first places in the island to develop indigenous theatre and had a strong creative tradition, especially of performance in the arts. At Alpha she acted in many plays, developing an early love for theatre. As a child she played Cobweb in Midsummer Night's Dream, as a teenager, Hecuba in The Trojan Women. In 1960 she went to a small Catholic college for women in Newton, MA., one of a few women of colour. Returning to Jamaica, she taught at high school and then teacher training college. She also worked part-time in TV, hosting shows like "Saturday Magazine" and "Bambu-Tambu" for the Jamaica Information Service, where she met husband (and fellow writer), Martin Mordecai, whom she married in 1966. In 1974 she went to work at the University of the West Indies as Publications Officer in the Faculty of Education. During her time at UWI, she began a writing partnership with the late Grace Walker Gordon that lasted over twenty-five years. She also began a PhD (part-time) on the poetry of Derek Walcott and Kamau Brathwaite that would take her 18 years to finish, every minute of which she enjoyed. Her first publication in 1987 was a book of children's poems, extension reading for Ginn & Company's highly successful Reading 360 Series. In addition to stories and poetry for children, she has written a play, "El Numero Uno," which had its world premiere in Toronto in 2010. Pam and her family emigrated to Canada in 1994. She and Martin live in Kitchener, Ontario.
