by BWW News Desk - Sep 9, 2016

'The Beautiful Home of Chase S. Squirrel': a beautifully illustrated tale of friends walking with God. 'The Beautiful Home of Chase S. Squirrel' is the creation of published author, Pam Watson, born and raised in North Carolina in a wonderful home by a loving mother and father that everyone adored. Her parents tried to instill Godly values and the golden rule into Pam and her Brother and Sister. Pam has had many wonderful family, friends, and pastors to help guide her on her journey to having a closer walk with the Lord. Several years ago, some friends flew her to Florida for vacation.
