About the Author

Pam Franklin spent a lifetime trying to escape her past. Pam was born and raised in and around Jackson, Mississippi where she spent most of her life. At sixty-five years old, she decided to embrace her early childhood and write it down in a journal. The process was so cleansing she wanted to share her story with other people who had lived through the same type of abuse she had endured at the hand of her mentally unstable older sister. As a successful businesswoman for the past forty years, Pam feels her ability to overcome such a challenging childhood made her into the strong and versatile person she is today. When not working or writing, she spends time in Charleston, South Carolina with her daughter, Whitney, and her grandsons, Teague and Crews. She now resides in Celebration, FL with her husband of twenty-five years, Bobby. For more information, please consult:

I was given this book to read and I have to say it was hard to put down. The book kept me on the edge of my seat thinking about the little girl suffering daily! Great read! Interesting insight into the world of multiple personalities.

An incredible book!! Hearing the interview of the author encouraged me to purchase this book. The book is fiction; but it is based on the horror that the author had to live through. The interview that I heard was only the tip of the iceberg. This book gives more insight as to what she had to live through. How she made it through is just incredible. A very well written story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Reviewed by Viga Boland for Readers' Favorite My Five Sisters by Pam Franklin is one of the most riveting reads I’ve ever had. Categorized by the author as a “psychological thriller” based on a true story about multiple personalities, Pam Franklin had me tightly gripping My Five Sisters from the moment I read the chilling opening lines. From that point on, I was turning pages as fast as I could go as I read about a little girl, Patra, being terrorized by her sibling, Angela, until Patra was finally old enough to stand up for herself and Angela…well…I’m not going to spoil the ending for you by telling you now what happened to her. But why is the book titled My Five Sisters? Because the tragic Angela has inwardly split into 5 personalities. Patra relates to each of them through their adjectival names: Angry, Sad, Normal, Kind and Hero. Unfortunately, it’s the dominant personalities of Angry and Sad that make Patra’s life miserable. Patra lives in constant fear of being killed by Angry or watching Normal die at the hands of Sad who is forever cutting herself. What has brought the normal Angela to this sorry state of existence? Sexual abuse at the hands of her father. And where and when do Hero and Kind come in? When Angry and Sad sacrifice themselves to prevent the same sexual abuse from happening to the beautiful little Patra. Oh, what a story! However, is it realistic? Well, those familiar with the Three Faces of Eve or who are themselves victims of incest (as I was), or those who work in mental health will tell you it’s all too believable. And then there’s Pam Franklin’s own comments, both on her website and in the book: “Pam Franklin spent a lifetime trying to escape her past”…a past that included “abuse she had endured at the hand of her mentally unstable older sister.” One of the interesting asides to this book is the author herself: Pam Franklin grew up to have a successful career in the film industry, and at the end of the book has included many photos taken with celebrities like John Candy, Jeff Bridges, Tom Selleck, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez…just to name a few. Is there the possibility of a “happy ending” for little Patra? If little Patra is Pam Franklin, as I suspect, and given the happy ending that many of us with traumatic childhoods achieve, yes, it is entirely possible to survive and thrive, something I think Pam Franklin wanted to show in writing My Five Sisters. Is there a future movie in My Five Sisters? Given Pam Franklin’s connections, that wouldn’t surprise me at all. Will it be as riveting as the book? Good question. In case there isn’t a movie planned, read the book.
