Pam Webber – Creating Meaningful Historical Fiction

Pam Webber’s latest novel, Moon Water, takes us to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and its rich Native American history, where sixteen-year-old Nettie is coming of age and experiencing its associated complexities. While dealing with a life-time bully and fallout from boyfriend issues, other problems arise. Nibi, an old medicine woman for the Monacan Indians, gives Nettie a cryptic message of impending danger during a blood moon that will threaten her and her loved ones. To protect themselves, Nettie and her friend Win, who is Nibi’s granddaughter, must build a mysterious dreamcatcher that requires them to search the dangerous mountains for the needed elements.

An excerpt from Moon Water and a captivating trailer is on Pam’s website.

Pam, I’ve always loved physical maps, so of course, I love this miniature postcard version! Thank you for sending it for my collection, and for detailing how it relates to Moon Water and your real-life migration through parts of the state of Virginia. And yes, I see the peaches. 🙂
