Biographical Sketch

Pam Conrad was born Pamela Stampf on June 18, 1947 in New York City. She married Robert Conrad in 1967 (divorced 1982), and they had two daughters. After attending Hofstra University, she received her bachelor's degree from the New School for Social Research in 1984. In the same year, she published I Don't Live Here, her first children's book. She wrote mostly young adult and juvenile fiction, often on serious topics. For example, Prairie Songs, which won numerous awards, concerns a pioneer woman who goes insane after moving from New York to Nebraska. Conrad died in 1996 at the age of 48.
