Pam Farley was raised in Adelaide, South Australia. She moved to the country twenty-five years ago to live her dream; a quaint cottage with a garden, and a view of her horses from the kitchen window.
Her husband and assorted animals now have the house to themselves, but she has children and grandchildren living nearby.
Pam has worked as a Veterinary Nurse since leaving school and has a special interest in surgical and emergency nursing. She also works as a volunteer Ambulance Officer.
She has always enjoyed writing, but annoyed her teachers at school with her choice of subject matter, horses, so much so that she gave it up. She remained an avid reader, with horror books becoming her favourite genre.
Pam took up writing again while skylarking from postgraduate studies around 2002, and began writing short stories, always with a dark twist.
Her other interests include horse riding, gardening, motor cycle riding, kayaking, travelling, walking her dogs and hanging out in her hammock (whilst reading a book).
Pam has written more than sixty short stories and has had many published in various literary magazines and anthologies. The Hunter Within is her sixth novel length story and is the first one published.
The Hunter Within won the 2015 Murray Book Prize.
