Pamela Jarmon Wade is a writer, actor, and human resources professional. Pamela is the author of the children's book series The Adventures of Little Leroy. Her new books, Things That Go Bump In The Night (Little Leroy Series) and Single Parent Support 2nd Edition, were both published in 2016.
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 had a passion to act and write since her teen years, but was a late bloomer.
She followed the advice of practical peers who were not dreamers and pursued a college education and business career/employment. She earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Texas Southern University, a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Phoenix, and attended Champions School of Real Estate. In addition to working in city government, Pamela has been a part-time Realtor, Adjunct Business Instructor for a community college, and also prepared for the teaching profession via the Texas Teachers Alternative Certification Program and passed the state exam for certification in the area of Generalist Grades 4-8.
Pamela could not deny her passion for acting and writing. She began writing and taking acting classes which led to her books and her performances in several plays, four independent movies, two commercials, and an industrial video. She is very excited to have been cast in the new short film, Row, which can be viewed on YouTube and on Green Eyed Theater's Facebook page . She says, “It’s in my blood honestly…my dad was a renaissance man. Over the years he was a Korean War Veteran (U.S. Army), truck driver, Certified Auto Mechanic, owned a lawn business, owned a hot shot delivery service, and was a Manager at Wessendorff & Nelms Company. There was nothing that my dad could not fix, do, build, and manage.”
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”. She feels that her writing and acting is not about money…it is about her passion and creative expression. Pamela has been a participating author at the National Black Book Festival (Houston) for the past few years. In 2014 she was invited to host / MC the Welcome to Houston Reception that kicks off the annual NBBF. She returned as host / MC in 2015 and 2016.
In her free time she enjoys traveling the world, participating in Middle School Career Days, and volunteering in her community. Pamela's social media sites are at PamelaJarmonWade.com; Twitter @pamjarmonwade; and Author Page at amazon.com/author/pamelajarmonwade.
