Since then she has written short stories, features and slice-of-life articles for magazines and newspapers ranging from Woman’s Weekly to The Times Educational Supplement, Your Cat to Christian Woman and Yachting Monthly, to The Sunday Telegraph and The Telegraph Magazine. Among her prize-winning stories She can’t take them with her was broadcast on Radio Oxford.
She has won poetry prizes, had poems published in The Lady and Wild About Animals. She has a published anthology, Osterley Park and Other Poems.
A lover of animals, gardens, classical music and art, Pamela delighted in hosting a small, but very talented Writers’ Circle.
She sadly died on 23 December 2020 on the Isle of Wight.
