Pamela Samuels-Young
Pamela Samuels-Young is a corporate attorney and the author of Every Reasonable Doubt, a fast-paced courtroom thriller. Her second legal drama, In Firm Pursuit, will be released in March 2007. Pamela’s desire to see engaging female and African-American characters in today’s mainstream legal fiction motivated her to write her first novel.

A native of Compton, California, Pamela is a former TV newswriter and also served as legal consultant to the Showtime television series, Soul Food. A graduate of UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law, Pamela earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism, magna cum laude, from the University of Southern California and her master’s degree in broadcasting from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.

An excerpt of Every Reasonable Doubt won the Black Expressions Book Club’s Annual Fiction Writing Contest and received an Honorable Mention in the SEAK Legal Fiction Writing Competition. Pamela’s first published short story, Setup, is featured in the Sisters in Crime anthology, LAndmarked for Murder.
