Pamela McCreary is an award-winning author, editor, actor, public speaker and television producer.


Ghost Road Press recently released her memoir, Dancing On The Head Of A Pin, to much acclaim.


I have been a professional actor in Denver for the last twenty-plus years, appearing in numerous television commercials, a few television shows: Lewis and Clark, The Corp of Discovery, a one-hour television special for the Discovery Channel that is still in syndication nationally, a video on MTV (no lace or leather was involved), corporate films and voice-overs. This summer I was cast in the Disney Channel’s latest film, Lemonade Mouth, which will air sometime early 2011.


A brief stint in the early 90s as a co-anchor of the morning drive on news-talk radio station KDEN was notable for one reason: My on-air partner Gene Towne was a seasoned radio veteran who called me “kid.” I was forty at the time. I will always love him for that.


For the most part I have been able to indulge my passion for performing by stitching together enough work to keep body and soul (and three kids) in food, clothing and shelter. Over the years, in addition to the on-camera work, I have worked in corporate entertainment as a Marilyn Monroe and Mae West impersonator, along with a variety of whacky walk-around characters, including Dr. Ruthless, a spoof on you-know-who.


As an improv comedian I performed with two of the western region’s most notorious improv comedy troupes: Chicken Lips and Plastered in Paris, and spent eight months as one of the theater’s silliest diva’s, Holly Pharme, in the hit comedy, Murder Most Fowl, at the Avenue Theater.


I have joined the ranks of the full-time employed a few times, once as an associate producer for Aspen-based Freewheelin’ Films and once as a sales rep and corporate trainer for Human Synergistics, Inc. There was this other job, too, but since they fired me after three months it hardly counts. They know who they are.


Most recently I was managing editor of Lifestyle Publications, a monthly magazine in south metro Denver, where I got to meet and write about, among others, Denver Broncos’ John Lynch and Dominique Foxworth, as well as Colorado Avalanche’s Dan Hinote and Milan Hejduk, in the locker room no less! Be still my heart …


During that time I shopped around my self-published memoir, Out of the Shadows, and two years ago Ghost Road Press picked up the option to re-brand and re-publish it, and Out of the Shadows was reborn as Dancing On The Head Of A Pin. It made its debut at a coming-out party in Cherry Creek on November 12, 2009.
