Pamela fell in love with Prince Edward Island when she moved there in 1983 with husband, Peter and daughters, Tanya and Joanna.

For each of Pamela's books, the images for her Title Pages come from her original paintings - acrylic on canvas, as well as the images included with each of her poems.

Thank you for reading Pamela's work and may each one bring enjoyment and stimulation to telling your own stories.
A single event, vision in our sight-paths, a memory from our past or a Divine Whisper from God can solicit feelings that inform us, inspire moral choices and actions or console us in difficult times. For me, these occurrences find me picking up a pen and paper. The poems, Drawn to Trees, Wrinkles and Rented Garments, As a Dove, I wrote recently. Dead in a Clean House came from an old scribbler.
Journey, Arrival and Retreat
If the past informs the future we, as seniors, must glance over our shoulder careful not to repeat a misplaced step and stumble, keep our eye on what lies ahead to ensure our destined arrival...but what if our progressive existence takes a detour leading us down a lane inviting shrugging acceptance of retreat? Journey, Arrival and Retreat is the eighth book of free verse in Pamela's series.
Faith and Fortitude
Exhale, laugh, wipe a few tears with me, and above all keep growing in faith (and fortitude). Faith and Fortitude adds to the author's series of Journey of Living with Faith through Verse. Poems share words of faith and feelings when faced with new experiences of pain in daily living.
Reaching In Faith
Reaching In Faith is the sixth in the series: Journey of Living with Faith through Verse. In this collection, Pamela has recounted uproarious observations of toddler grandchildren as she celebrates her abiding faith in God through a selection of Poems inspired by family and nature while navigating her way into old age resisting mirrors or makeovers!
Is it "suddenly winter" for you? Do feelings of shame permeate your being as you respond irritably in response to snowy, ice filled days? Does disgruntlement fill you as you host uninvited gray hairs, arthritis and other physical and situational interlopers into your life? These verses encapsulate the perspectives of different old women. Let us thank God for our blessings.
Pause for Thought
A collection of verse written between painting with her grandchildren, taking advantage of her husband's immense capacity for patience, and her obsession with making chicken soup stock! Pamela recounts experiences that retrieve joy, philosophic meandering and the power of faith.
In Faith, Still Growing
A sampling of verse spanning mid-life to grandmotherhood, including nature, nonsense and introspection - poems seek to stimulate examination of poverty and oppression with affluence across the world.
Celebrating The Weeds
This collection celebrates the beauty and inspiration of weeds in our gardens and country sides. Perhaps what appears unexpectedly in your garden is indeed critical to the growth, wonder and magnificence of your life. This collection of verse, prose and weedy words comes from my garden of life.
When You Wonder
This collection represents a 'freefall' of love, wonder, and self-awareness, rediscovered in worn scribblers, filed in bottom drawers here and there, over decades. My purpose in sharing is in the hope that you will realize how special the gift of your life and every life is to the world.
Woman of Heart Man of Clay
The world has fallen apart for the Harrison family. Their precious son needs a life-saving bone marrow transplant. A confession and search for the true father results in the arrival a former U.S. Senator who defined passion for Bethany many years ago.
