Pamela Dangelmaier was born in Vancouver, BC and now lives close enough that she can still smell the fresh ocean air. She graduated with a BFA in Theatre from UBC and although she’s not acting full time she’s still considered a bit of a ham.
Co-owner of the nationally recognized mail order plant company, Botanus, Pamela has enjoyed being a ‘gardening expert’ on television, radio and YouTube. When she’s not wearing her many hats at Botanus she’s either knitting socks, tending her beehives or spoiling her two cats. Flour Garden is her first novel.
Pamela began work on Flour Garden after many 'inspirational' visits to garden clubs as an invited guest speaker. She has a keen eye for interesting personalities and revels in the uniqueness of what makes us all tick. In Flour Garden she offers a veritable smorgasbord of literary treats.
If you love baking, gardening and quirky fun characters then you'll love Flour Garden.
THEY'VE HAD A NIBBLE
FRESH OFF THE PRESS
The Kerrisdale Garden Club is teetering on the brink of disaster. Its aging group of gardeners have allowed their apathy to grow like weeds in an unkempt garden and the club is about to take its final horticultural gasp before plunging into obscurity.
That is until a not-so-mysterious stranger suddenly appears at their weekly meeting and things quickly descend into a cacophony of star-struck chaos. Little do the unsuspecting octogenarians know but the newcomer is about to breathe new life into their withering club. Why is it, though, that for one member in particular, the stranger’s unexpected appearance will dig up painful memories from the past that perhaps best remain buried?
This romping story takes place in a blossoming, springtime Vancouver. Join the effervescent owner of the city’s hippest bakery, the quirky members of Vancouver’s oldest gardening club, a captivatingly charismatic television celebrity and the flamboyant head horticulturalist of the Shaughnessy Botanical Garden as together they sow the seeds of self-discovery, fertilize them with a good dose of forgiveness and reap the fruits of their labour.
