My writing draws from performance and literary elements that reflect social justice, pop-culture-media, race, and identity. "Cranky Chariots" (Akashic Books), a flash fiction version of a longer speculative story explores the elimination of elders and other disposable communities to future “discrete” Hemispheres, was published online this fall. The essay story Symmetry in the Charlie Brown Christmas, Wiley Press, published by the Anthropology of Consciousness, Interbeing Issue, (Wiley 2017), grapples with storytelling’s ability to speak to us as an independent whole.
An author of more than ten plays/performance works, I am a featured playwright in the critically acclaimed Blacktino Queer Performance, Duke Univ. Press Two new monologues, written in homage to the performing artists/activists LaChanz and Karen Finley, were recently published by 365 Women A Year, a playwriting Project. An early excerpt from Pamela’s forthcoming novel Fierce! Remains, was part of the legacy collection Answering Joseph Beam's Call and a Lambda Literary Awards Finalist. Past Writer Fellowships and Residencies include: VCCA/Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center and the Norman Mailer Writers Colony.
Currently, I’m at work on a new collection of fiction stories, Dills Mirrors & the Lizzies.
