When attorney and author Pamela Samuels Young isn’t practicing law, you can usually find her penning her next legal thriller. She now has six novels to show for her efforts and is the recipient of a prestigious NAACP Image Award.In addition to writing legal thrillers, Pamela works full-time as Managing Counsel for Labor and Employment Law for a major corporation in Southern California.

A former journalist, Pamela has always abided by the philosophy that you create the change you want to see. Fed up with never seeing women or people of color depicted as savvy, hot shot attorneys in the legal thrillers she read, the Compton native decided to create her own character. Despite the demands of a busy legal career, Pamela accomplished her ambitious goal by rising at four in the morning to write before work, dedicating her weekends to writing and even spending her vacation time glued to her laptop for ten or more hours a day. In the process, she discovered her passion.

Her most recent novel, Anybody's Daughter, won the 2014NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Fiction. A cautionary tale for both parents and teens, Anybody’s Daughter explores the horrific world of child sex trafficking. Pamela is also a natural hair enthusiast and theauthor of Kinky Coily: A Natural Hair Resource Guide.
