Pam Watson Releases THE BEAUTIFUL HOME OF CHASE S. SQUIRREL
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. They lived on the Gulf of Mexico where every day, Pam could walk on the beach, watch the dolphins play, see the birds, and enjoy God's beauty. Then Pam was hooked. The idea formed over time for her to move to Florida herself. After much prayer, she took the leap of faith and moved to Largo, Florida, to be close to her friends. Pam is excited to have written her first book. (more...)
