When I was younger, people would ask...who's your hero? My answer was always my father. They'd say things like, no no, like an actor or actress? Someone famous?
And my answer would be -- Yes, my father.
If I can be half the man my father was, I will be doing just fine.

He has always been my hero. And not just because he was my father, but because, he was a hero. A highly decorated war veteran, Pearl Harbor survivor, radioman, Black Cat....after the war, a fire fighter, and then onward to work for Raytheon, working with military contracts, etc.
Who could top that? No one. He's my hero and always will be.
Now, please understand, I have made every attempt to keep these memoirs as accurate, true to history, and non-emotional (on my part) as possible. Neither the fiction story, Dear Margaret, nor the memoirs have been padded or exaggerated in any way. The events and historical details have been taken, practically word for word from my father's memoirs and personal collections.
I made a promise to him that I would not let anyone forget what happened in the Pacific Theatre. This is my way of keeping that promise.
I Was Just a Radioman is a compilation of his memoirs and memorabilia.  It's available for purchase at your favorite bookstore.
*****Now Available in Audio!*****
Wondering why/how I came up with the title?
It's a quote.
We were watching television and an ad for the movie Code-Talkers came on. I think that's when it hit me. My mouth dropped - I looked at him and said. "You were a code-talker."
He shook his head, laughed, and said. "That's Hollywood talk. We were just radiomen. I was just a radioman. That's all. Just a radioman."
So, of course, being who I am I asked. "Do you remember the codes?"
He nodded. "Yah."
"Wow! Can you tell me some?"

DearMargaretCoverweb.jpg (150×225)
Dear Margaret, is a fictional story based on Henry P. Lawrence's memoirs. 

Two young teens, in a world that had gone bonkers, try to keep each other grounded by writing letters to each other during WWII. Although what happened in their lives was vastly different from each other, they found a common ground, a way to keep each other sane.

From mundane daily chores to life threatening events, these letters from two pen pals take the reader on a journey into the past, a past where nightmares came true, and when hatred reigned.

A time in history that we should never, ever forget.

Pamela Ackerson started writing poems and short stories as a teen. Later, as a young mother, she continued writing children's stories and poems. Born and raised in Newport, RI where history is a way of life, Pam now lives on the Space Coast of Florida, a hop, skip, and jump from Orlando, where imagination and fantasy abounds. She has three children, all girls, three grandchildren and a wonderful husband. (Obviously, don't we all say that?) But, it is true and she will be the first to admit it. He is a wonderful husband and she has concrete, undeniable proof. She has not plotted his demise ... yet.

Pam may have majored in child psychology with a minor in English, but her distinguished choice of careers never made fruition. Instead life led her to working in restaurants, interior decorating, owned an advertising business, content editor for a publishing house, owned a ballroom dance studio, and real estate investments. Pam is a practicing herbalist and has been involved in the use of natural treatment with raw herbs for almost thirty years. As her day job, she currently works as the V.P. of Marketing and Advertising for the book review magazine, Affaire de Coeur.
