Author: Pam Kelly
Pam Kelly has written poetry all her life and still has little sentimental
written when she was a tot, and longer, surprisingly adult and insightful
written when she was eleven and twelve, some lines of which she occasionally
steals for her work today. As a teenager she wrote songs and comic
school productions and this talent for making people laugh has continued
present day when she regularly performs “party pieces” of the
stand-up-comedytype. Poetry, however, is the mainspring of her life,
and she has hundreds of ideas
for poems scribbled on the backs of used envelopes, till receipts
and table napkins
when she is “caught out” by a poem in an awkward place.
Two years ago, she had a brush with the Grim Reaper, and her first
thought was,“I must publish my poetry”. This resulted in “On
the Edge”, a collection which
won instant success, got excellent reviews, and is now reprinted
and published by
She is about to publish her 2nd book, “Fiesta”, poems written
earlier this year in
Andalucia, and a 3rd book, “Random Atoms”, will be published
in time for the
Mere Literary Festival in October where she has been asked to be
a poetry judge
and do a book signing.
She lives alone in Shaftesbury, Dorset, where she performs with
the local theatre
group and leads U3A groups in Circle Dance and Philosophy.
She has a son and daughter, a grandson and two granddaughters.
