Within the pages of the Painter Place Saga, the characters refer to legends about the island. These short stories enhance the meaning of these references in the books or stand alone as historical tales. Each has a distinct personality of its own!
The Wind Songs of the Marsh, Painter Place Legend 1
Before Painter Place became inhabited, Native American legends arose about the White Spirits that lived there.
Long ago, in a time so far past that the names of the people in this story have been forgotten, the Wind Songs came to sing on White Island. The enduring heart of the story remains, passed along from generation to generation as a legend. The color white was the Indian symbol for "south," and it denoted peace and happiness. They believed the White Spirits lived in the south, and that the island was an idyllic place. When the unthinkable happens, the tribe witnesses how the Creator of All assures them of ultimate hope.
King's Ransom, Painter Place Legend 2
A shipwreck. A faithful dog. A legend.
King was a great swimmer and might survive if the unthinkable happened. But would the well-trained retriever leave his station of guarding an ominous old chest to save himself?
The Castaway and the Mermaid, Painter Place Legend 3
The greatest treasure that washed ashore wasn't the gold.
Fleeting moonlight revealed the ghostly outline of a pirate flagship riding distant waves. Then all was dark again under scurrying clouds before a mermaid rose from the sea, shimmering under a moonbeam. The man who called himself Castaway stood spellbound as she promised treasure and a message to the master of the island. But the treasure she offered was lashed to small powder kegs that formed a makeshift raft. Could he trust a woman bearing pirate plunder?
These three exciting, clean short stories are written from a Christian worldview.

About the Author
Pamela Poole's love for the South inspires all her books and paintings. It's why she describes her work as "Southern Ambiance." She and her husband Mark currently live in Raleigh, NC, but she considers the Lowcountry of SC "home."
Her perspective on writing books and painting is like that of the iconic artist Norman Rockwell, who once said he knew life was not ideal, but it should be, so he chose to paint that way. Pamela has experienced enough "reality" in life and pursues the warm, whimsical, loveable, and ideal in her creativity. She hopes readers will laugh out loud, sigh, be inspired to reach higher, and feel refreshed, as if they've been for a walk in warm Southern sunshine!
Pamela writes clean fiction from a Christian worldview, but she was an artist before she became an author. Her stories often feature artists and art perspectives that help any reader have a deeper appreciation for painting. Her devotionals are written in hopes of helping fellow believers have a fresh, meaningful walk in their faith with Christ.
Pamela lives life loving Jesus and her family as a wife, mother, and Gigi, and she is blessed with true friends. She is a member of various artist and author organizations.
"Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us— to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen." Ephesians 3:20,21
