Pamela Ribon is a screenwriter, TV writer and bestselling author. In addition to writing upcoming features for both Walt Disney Animation Studios and Sony Pictures Animation, 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 has been a consultant for both film and television, including DisneyNature's recent release BEARS. Her memoir -- NOTES TO BOYS (AND OTHER THINGS I SHOULDN'T SHARE IN PUBLIC) -- has been called "brain-breakingly funny" by NPR. She’s been in comedy rooms for both network and cable, most notably the Emmy award-winning SAMANTHA WHO?. She 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. A former AFF teleplay and screenplay finalist and an 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.
