Pamela Krueger writes in multiple genres, although her most recent foray has been in the realm of creative nonfiction. She recently completed her M.F.A. in Creative Writing with an emphasis in this genre. Attending a low residency program through Oregon State University, she was a member of the “Wheels of Fortune” cohort and also experimented with short story and poetry with her Wheel friends. She writes in whatever genre speaks to her at the time she sits down to write, with an eye towards lively and vibrant experiences that speak to our common humanity. A natural born collaborator, she loves to learn from and connect with people with varied perspectives and life experiences.
She has recently completed a nonfiction book that is comprised of seven linked and segmented essays organized around themes that relate to her experiences during her oldest son’s three and one-half years of chemotherapy treatment for a rare form of leukemia. As witnessed medical memoir, these essays invite the reader to engage with the unfamiliar landscapes wrought by sudden, tragic change, all the while following a labyrinthine path towards the culminating transformations that occur within her family. These experiences are at once unique and universal for anyone who has had a loved one face tragedy.
She lives in Issaquah, Washington, with her two young adult sons, middle-aged Corgi, and husband of over a quarter of a century.
