    Lawful Deception by Pamela Samuels Young - Featured Author Showcase - Part 3

    Lawful Deception by Pamela Samuels Young

    The beautiful Bliss Fenton won't be winning any awards for Mother of the Year. Truth is, motherhood isn't nearly as important to Bliss as the cottage industry she's created: extorting wealthy men solely for the hefty child support she can collect.

    But Bliss' greed ultimately goes too far when she takes on Fletcher McClain. The handsome record industry mogul insists there's no way he's the father of Bliss' third child. But when the results of the paternity test are finally revealed, a stunned McClain refuses to take them lying down. He hires accomplished L.A. attorney Vernetta Henderson to sue Bliss for fraud.

    When an unscrupulous attorney from Vernetta’s past reappears to represent Bliss, Vernetta's faithful sidekick Special steps in to join the fight. While Special is hard at work digging up dirt on Bliss, she’s distracted by an investigation of a more personal nature, one that ends up challenging her prejudices as well as her heart.

    As Vernetta goes head to head against her corrupt opponent, the stakes get higher and higher and in a flash, the lawsuit goes from contentious to outright deadly.

    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.

    THE NOT SO SUPER MOMENTS OF THE SUPERBOWL!

    in Current Events

    Superbowl 50 has came and gone but everyone is still talking! I am sad because my team did not win but I am more saddened by what went on during and after especially on social media. First it was the dragging of Cam Newton because of how he walked out of the press conference. To be honest with you I did not blame him. I would not have sat there and took what some mediocore journalist was going to dish out. He made a statement and that's all folks. One thing I understand is the CAM owes us nothing. This young man just lost the Superbowl and you want to talk about it. Why? But twitter was all over the ex player commentator who referred to him as boy. When I saw his nasty record for fines I just shook my head. Then a conservative Trump supporter (this was on his profile) typed all 140 characters calling Beyonce' the N word. Then Rudy decided to have his say. I have a problem with a person being the morality police when you cheated on your wife while being Mayor and I believed he married the mistress. Let him tell it Beyonce's formation is disrespect to the police. I could only shake my head because this could not be further from the truth. Now there are even more who has called the whole performance racists. You know anything that some can't understand then it has to be labeled. So I will be discussing this whole situation.
