Jarmon-Wade in red

From the time that Pamela was a teen who attended Francis Scott Key Jr. High, she knew that she wanted to be a writer and actress.  Despite a myriad of interests, which included Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps, she ultimately decided to attend Texas Southern University in her beloved hometown of Houston.  She earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a concentration in General Business, became a Realtor and Adjunct Business Instructor for a community college.   She forged a career in the public sector that has spanned 30 years, went on to earn a Master of Business Administration degree, and is now a Human Resources Professional.

Pamela considers herself a renaissance soul which means that she prefers variety and combination over focusing all of her energy on only one thing.  It has been speculated that this is why “late bloomers” in acting eventually become writers to explore their varied interests and passions.  Pamela never gave up on her passion to act and write.  Her motto was adopted from a quote by Belva Davis, “Don't be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality.  If you can dream it, you can achieve it”.   Pamela studied with acting coach Joanna Sanchez and voice-over coach Jim Conlan.  She took acting classes at the Lone Star Actors Studio and A.D. Players Theater Arts Academy in addition to various other acting workshops.  She is represented by Pastorini-Bosby Talent Agency.  She continues to build her acting resume with credits in film, theater, and television commercials.  Film credits include “Row”, “Blink”, “The Timelord”, and an episode of the “G.R.U.$.T.L.E Diaries”; Theater credits include the stage play “When Children Pray”, “My Life On Earth Expired”, and “The Other Side of Me”; most recent Commercial credit is with the Steve Lee Law Firm.

Pamela has written books in several genres.  She concentrates most on her children’s book series, “The Adventures of Little Leroy”.  She says, “My Sam Houston High Creative Writing instructor Michael Delaney and Journalism instructor Nancy Barton would be proud!”   Illustrator Melanie Crawford, also a native Houstonian, has a God given artistic talent that helps to bring the Little Leroy series to life.

Pamela is an annual participating author with the National Black Book Festival (NBBF) in Houston.  She has been selected by the Co-Founder, Gwen Richardson, for the past four years to Host/MC the Welcome to Houston Reception which kicks off the book festival each year.  In 2017, Pamela along with two other children’s authors (Shelita Anderson and Mary Evans) were selected to coordinate the first NBBF Children’s Festival.  The event was successful and will now become an annual part of the NBBF.  The 2018 Children’s Festival Coordinators will be Pamela Jarmon-Wade, Shelita Anderson, and Mary Evans.

Pamela loves her family, friends, and traveling.  Her love of both have taken her many places, but the most memorable trips have been to the East Coast, Canada, Dominican Republic, California, Eastern Caribbean, Hawaii, St. Kitts & Nevis, China, and France.  Pamela continues to live, laugh, love, and keep the faith in one of her favorite bible scriptures… Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me.”
