Pamela Ribon is a TV writer, screenwriter and best-selling novelist (WHY GIRLS ARE WEIRD, YOU TAKE IT FROM HERE). She’s been in comedy rooms for both network and cable television, most notably the Emmy award-winning SAMANTHA WHO?. Pamela has adapted her popular novels for both film and television, and developed original series and features for ABC, ABC Family, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney Channel and 20th Century Fox Productions. She’s written features for Walt Disney Animation Studios and DisneyNature, and is currently writing at Sony Pictures Animation, as well as creating a graphic novel for Oni Press. Her comedic memoir NOTES TO BOYS (AND OTHER THINGS I SHOULDN’T SHARE IN PUBLIC), called “brain-breakingly funny” by NPR, is out now.
Pamela was an Oprah.com contributor, a flagship contributor to Television Without Pity, and a weekly columnist for the Austin American-Statesman. She’s known as a pioneer in the blogging world with her successful website pamie.com, which has been spotlighted for Lifetime Achievement from the Weblog Awards. Her stage work has been showcased at the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival and she created the accidental international scandal known as Call Us Crazy: The Anne Heche Monologues. With the support of her loyal fan base, Pamela co-created DeweyDonationSystem.org, a charity that helps books find needy libraries. She once made Oprah laugh with a vagina joke. (At least that’s what Gayle told her.)
A former Austinite with a BFA in Acting from the University of Texas, Pamela has been entered into the Oxford English Dictionary under “muffin top.” That is not a joke. You can follow her @pamelaribon, where she somehow writes even more.
