About Pam

Pamela Kramer has been a voracious reader since the age of five and has reviewed hundreds of books. She has been rescuing animals for over 30 years. Pam was the National Book Reviewer for Examiner and the Chicago Book Examiner. She has interviewed award-winning and bestselling authors including Katherine Applegate, Claire Cook, Michael Grant and Peter Abrahams (Spencer Quinn). She is a teacher and a former attorney.

Pam also wrote a rescue column for Examiner which called for shelter reform and highlighted animals urgently in need of rescue. Before that she had written a local Pet of the Week column for over nine years, and 90% of the animals featured were adopted. She has adopted from many local rescues and three of her four cats were literally rescued from the street outside her house. She has fostered too many kittens and dogs to count, rescued (and kept) a rabbit, four rats, two feral kitties (who are now eight years old), and much more. In her household right now are three dogs, four cats, a bird and two African clawed frogs. She is not shopping for more animals, although she does foster whenever possible. Pam has even traveled to China to bring back two dogs her daughter rescued there. One dog, Chloe, lives with her.

Pam reads at least four books a week (while teaching, cleaning dog/cat/bird messes, and gardening). She is also a contributor to Huffington Post.

Pam has combined her passion for reviewing books and saving animals at PamelaKramer.com. Contact her at PamelaOKramer@gmail.com.
