Pam Bayfield was born in Mt Isa, Queensland in 1940. As her father was a Mining Engineer the family lived in many different places. Most of her schooling was done in Broken Hill. She completed her education at PLC Armidale, went to Teachers' College there, and became a teacher. She taught in Sydney for many years before marrying and having three sons.
Pam left teaching to help in the family Real Estate business. When the boys were older she returned to teaching and taught at Pittwater House, Collaroy for ten years. Pam retired in 1998 and began writing. She started with her mother's life story to be followed by a book about her sons.
After attending a writing course she embarked on her first novel, To Those Who Wait, about her father's side of the family. From Ochre to Azure Blue, Pam's autobiography, was her second book. Her third book, Anneke's Story, is about a Dutch woman interned by the Japanese in Java during the Second World War. These have all sold out.
