About the Author

Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson is one of the most recognizable women in the world and the mother of two. She lives in a small town on the California coast. "Ghostwriter" Eric Shaw Quinn lives and works in Los Angeles. She's from Ladysmith, British Columbia, he's from Natchitoches, Louisiana -- just two small-town kids trying to make it in the big city. They are very proud of Star, their first work together; but a little disappointed that they could spend this much time together and not be linked romantically in the tabloids.
