I have been asked to answer some questions about my writing etc. so here goes….
Where do you live?
I live in Loxley in Sheffield England. I have lived here all my life. I come from a working class family and I am a yorkshire lass born and bred. I have had various jobs throughout my working life and ended up working for the National Health Service in Quality and Development Management. I am now retired.I was married for ten years when I was younger then I got divorced and married a lovely man who sadly died. I have three children and had two stepson’s, one sadly died aged 20 of cancer. My late husband Clive Griffiths died aged 54 of a brain tumor that was fifteen years ago. It made me realise that life is short and we must make the best of what we have. I met Sandy my partner four years ago we live together in Loxley and have a lovely house in the countryside which is wonderful in the summertime but not so good in the winter if it snows.
Do you get encouragement when you write?
My family have always supported me, my late husband encouraged me to write well before I was published.
My mum and dad always supported my writing and my children and grandchildren, My partner Sandy supports me too.
My Dad passed away just over a year ago and my mum is housebound so she has carers four times a day. I visit her three times a week to make sure she is ok. My sister sees her three times a week too.
I miss the encouragement dad gave when he was alive but now I write in his memory, I know he would have supported me if he was here.
I have a sister and a brother who also encourage me.
I have nine grandchildren, so plenty of family support there.
What sort of stories do you write?
I like to write poetry, short stories and fiction. I just like writing, anything really.
I am a member of Writers on the Same Page formerly Writers for Welfare and have two stories in the charity anthology Telling Tales.
What do you like to read?
I like to read thrillers, horror stories and supernatural stories. I also like to read any interesting stories, as long as it keeps me interested I will read it.
What type of books have you written?
I mainly write poetry books and I have been published in nearly sixty anthologies over the years. I have had some of my poems included on CD anthologies and in yearly diaries by my publisher United Press Ltd London. I was in the United Press Poets of the year book 2011 and Writer’s of the year book 2011. I have also self published some of my books.
Will you have a new book coming out soon?
I am working on a children’s book for Christmas at the moment, it is a book of short stories and poems. I hope to have it completed and published in time for Christmas.

PAMELA GRIFFITHSUnited Kingdom (Great Britain)
Hot warm feelings, of love and tenderness
Dressed in trendy clothes and a sensual dress
Make up shows the features of the beautiful face
Taking sensible precautions just in case
Love is an art form that cannot be denied
A warm and fluttery feeling deep inside
Two become one when the love takes hold
This is a love that is starting to unfold
Nothing can compare to a love so true
Moving together saying I love you
That glass of wine, the exotic fare
The feeling of love that is in the air
The naked soul is heightened for desire
The physical connection is arousing fire
A feeling inside that is a complete whole
Finding the target and reaching the goal
Warm and sensual, caressing and pleasing
Bodies entwined full of passionate teasing
Kissing the passion and melting inside
Explosive pleasure that bodies can’t hide
Ships in the night
Far away feelings erupting to the top
Movements in time that will not stop
The warm expression of connecting two
Like ships in the night passing through
Expressive movement while swaying together
The tickle of a moving stray duck down feather
Strawberries and cream and burning candles
Rubbing in the sensual oils around love handles
A moment’s pleasure is a lifetime’s memory
With consenting adults what will be will be
Shivering convulsions of voluntary actions
Ending with awaited rhythmic contractions
Let the moment capture each wonderful stroke
As the candle burns lower emitting its smoke
Caressing each other as the candle burns bright
Giving out signals like ships in the night
As I walked into the club I saw the woman of my dreams
She was dancing on the stage around the spotlight beams
Her long blond hair swayed with rhythmic harmony
She awakened such desire and warmth inside of me
So gracefully she danced with her body gyrating
She was looking straight at me which was so elating
As I stared with longing at my lovely dream girl
She removed her garments and set my heart in a whirl
Tanned flesh was revealed it was a sight to behold
She wasn’t embarrassed she seemed to be so bold
Long and lanky legs wrapped around the pole
As she thrust her body upwards, my heart she stole
Longing and yearning, I was putty in her hand
If only she would come to me she would understand
I can look but cannot touch, she is just a fantasy
This woman so exotic will never be with me
As I lay on the table her hands moved around
She worked on my body without making a sound
The mud pack was cooling and soothing on me
I had cucumber slices so my eyes could not see
The sensual movement of her hands were real
Her special attention was all I could feel
Moving around with her expertise
Doing her best to try to please
If you pay a little extra there may be more fun
Once the massage is over and more has begun
The lady will provide more pleasure if you like
She will ride you just like riding a bike
Nothing compares to a massage de-stress
She has nothing to prove to me, to impress
Everything is ok when I walk through the door
Knowing that her hands on me will explore
Hot towels are applied after mud is removed
The mud is so useful, it has been proved
Wonderful sleek sexy ladies are there
With their sensual hands and long shiny hair
Cooling concoctions of oils and balms
The feeling of a massage really calms
Kneading and palpating as the oils go in
This is so lovely so it can’t be a sin
Oh my lovely escort what can I say
You are here with me now for just today
I might have paid a fortune for your time and pleasure
But what we have now is far too good to measure
Pleasing me with what you do and making me feel good
You are just the same as me human flesh and blood
Your body is so beautiful, you know just what to do
My gorgeous sexy lady I really do love you
The way you please me just like I want you too
I always know that what I want I can get from you
Moving and caressing me in a sexual prowess
This is all corporeal as I watch you undress
Pleasing me with passion and a hot sexy smile
If I hadn’t paid you I suppose you’d run a mile
But for today you are my lovely sexy lady
Nothing is too good for you, nothing is shady
Time stands still while we are joined together so
As the time ticks by I don’t want to let you go
But this is just a job for you and you get paid in kind
I love you very much my lovely escort in my mind
I would love to hear your feedback – Pamela Griffiths Author and Poet.
