Omak woman writes first book of poetry

Signing event planned April 19 at Omak winery

— Pam Rowland has released her first book of poetry, “Lest We Forget Life’s Passion.”

Rowland, who writes under the name P.S. Rowland, has lived in Omak since 1977.

“I’ve been writing for my whole life,” she said.

She originally thought fiction was her calling, but discovered she was more comfortable with poetry.

“I’ve journaled my whole life in poetry,” said Rowland, 54.

A few years ago she shared her work with others and received great feedback.

She said she was noticed through Twitter — where she also does poetry.

“It’s been a fun journey” into poetry, she said. “You have to really love it or you don’t.”

“‘Lest We Forget Life’s Passion’ probes the intuitive language of the heart — the universal human experiences of love, nature, struggle and faith, through a combination of free verse poetry, rhyme and haiku,” Rowland said.

“My hope is that my collection of poems will encourage you to see the passion all round you, experience the feelings trapped inside you, and inspire you to live life true to yourself.

A book signing is planned at 2 p.m. April 19 at RockWall Cellars, 110 Nichols Road.

Rowland and her family live in the Omak area.

She also enjoys photography, boating, skiing and riding her motorcycle, she said.
