Your Innkeepers: Pam Dehnke and Darrell James

Pam Dehnke is a California Court Reporter and novelist. The Diary of an Extraordinarily Ordinary Woman and Her Rather Eccentric Sister was released in December and is available on Amazon and at your local bookstores. Pam is currently working on a mystery series, The Court Reporter Always Gets the Last Word, as well as a memoir, I Remember Dale, a tribute to her beloved brother who died on his twenty-third birthday. Pam first came to Ashland as an English Lit major forty-three years ago. She became enamored with Oregon Shakespeare Festival and returned every year to spend her summers here.

Darrell James is an award-winning author of Mystery/Thrillers. He hails originally from Northern Kentucky, and has lived more than thirty years collectively in Arizona and California. In addition, Darrell is a gifted craftsman. During the pandemic year, he single-handedly designed and  constructed a garage and is currently working on decking.

“Together we both share a love of people, life, and the culture that is uniquely Ashland.”
