Light in the Shade by Pam Eaves
Launched at Loughton Library
February 25th 2008
The launch, held in the Jazz Archive Room at the library, was opened by Jeff Sedley, the Chairman of the Epping Forest Branch of the University of the
Third Age. Pam then gave a short talk on why she started writing at the age of sixty, how the book came to be published and why she prefers short
stories, before reading a selection of excerpts from the book.
Here, in Pam's own words, is a flavour of the content:
'My stories are drawn from incidents in real life which trigger my imagination. I wonder how the people felt in those particular circumstances
and endeavour to portray characters dealing with difficult situations. They are not 'sweet little old lady' stories; in fact some are gritty or even
sombre, but with the variety the book contains, I am sure that everyone will find something to their taste, even to their amusement.'
'Follow the Dream' - an article by Pam about how the book came to be, will appear in the forthcoming issue of 'Yours' magazine (March 2008).
