Pamela Harris graduated from Reading University and then moved to Switzerland, where she taught English and Classical studies at international schools in the Geneva area. A long-time member of both the Alpine Club and the Swiss Alpine Club, she has walked and climbed extensively in the mountains of Europe and the Himalayas, and organises walking holidays in both areas for these clubs.
For many years Pamela walked with Janette Norton and assisted with previous editions of her guides. On Janette’s death in 2013 she helped Janette’s husband Alan to complete new editions of Walking in Provence, and more recently has helped him to prepare updated editions of the two Haute Savoie walking guides and Walking in the Dordogne.
Pamela writes articles for various journals, and has now joined the ranks of Cicerone Extra authors with articles and blogs on Bhutan, Sicily and the Haute Savoie.
