"Can one be forgiven for betraying their friend?"
So easily one can get caught up in jealousy and envy and find themselves spiraling down a path of lies, deception, and into the bed of someone that belongs to another. "But what is your gain for betraying a friend,a loved one?" At the time it may all be in fun and games to you, but what are the repercussions, for the very act. They say karma comes back seven folds, but what if it comes in a unspeakable way?" How do you handle being betrayed?' I introduce to you my new novel Sexual Repercussions".
Porsche Lattimore seems like a woman that has everything that any woman could ever want, beauty, intelligence, power and success. But under all that beauty lies a woman that is broken, bitter and out for revenge. When her best friend Simone sleeps with her boyfriend, and Porsche father leaves her mother for her best friend, her whole world falls apart. They all gain pleasuer, but the price would be a hefty one. Be careful what you do to another, cause it may just come back on you....
“What do you do when the one’s you love and trust betray you?”
“How do you deal with pain?”
This is the life Porsche Lattimore lived and had to deal with.
The high school fairy tale love and unbreakable best friendship was now over.
Antoine laid there in the essence of his betrayal sex with my best friend, Simone.
I watched through the window that stormy night.
He held her like he would hold Porsche.
“Didn’t they know that there are always repercussions for betraying another?”
Porsche life had gone from sugar to shit in the blink of an eye.
What her eyes saw would forever put a lump of revenge in her stomach that would last seven years.
Not knowing how to forgive or move on from this, she lived a life of revenge, and all would feel her wrath.
Over the years, Porsche went from bed to bed trying to find what she had lost in high school, which was love.
Even the death of her mother she never got over, but she had her own speculations about what happened to her too.
She vowed when the time was right everyone involved would pay dearly, Antoine, Simone and even her bastard of a father.
Trust, love and respect had left this home a long time ago, Porsche thought to herself.
Being burned will teach you a lot, to never put all your trust and heart into another individual
But as you live life, you will see the true colors of another.
Porsche met Simone when they were in Grade school. Simone was the new kid on the block.
It was 9:45 a.m with the class bell rang, it was time for art
The classroom door open and in walks a young girl with long curly ponytails, falling onto her shoulders.
Most kids that come to a new school are always timid and scared.
Simone walked in with a big smile on her face and confidence, a lot like me, Porsche thought.
Mrs. Benison, our teacher, walked Simone over to the only empty desk in class, right next to me Porsche Lattimore.
This was the beginning of an unbreakable friendship, and the day they became sisters.

Meet Pamela Samuels Young,
author of Murder on the Down Low
Pamela Samuels Young is a practicing attorney and author of the legal thrillers, Murder on the Down Low, In Firm Pursuit, Every Reasonable Doubt, and the forthcoming, Buying Time, A desire to see women and people of color represented in today’s legal fiction prompted Pamela to start writing despite a busy career as an attorney. The former journalist and Compton native is a graduate of USC, Northwestern University and UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law. Pamela is the fiction writing expert for BizyMoms.com and is on the Board of Directors of the Southern California Chapter of Mystery Writers of America.
ABOUT THE BOOK
A high-profile lawsuit erupts into chaos, revealing its place in a larger spree of violence in this scandalous tale of lust, lies, and vengeance. A brazen gunman is targeting prominent African American men on the streets of Los Angeles, and police are completely baffled. At the same time, savvy big-firm attorney Vernetta Henderson and her outrageous sidekick, Special, lead the charge for revenge against a man whose deceit caused his fiancée’s death. For Special, hauling the man into court and suing him for wrongful death just isn’t good enough. While she exacts her own brand of justice, a shocking revelation connects the contentious lawsuit and the puzzling murders.
What advice would you give to aspiring authors?
Master your craft! Take the time to study writing the same way you would study any other profession. Also, read like a writer. When you read a book you enjoy, study the author’s writing style and the book’s story structure. Ask yourself why the book was a great read. One of the most helpful things I did as a new writer was outline John Grisham’s The Firm and examine the story structure. It helped me tremendously in learning how to build suspense.
Pamela is the Fiction Writing Expert for BizyMoms.com. Her bi-monthly articles cover a range of topics on fiction writing. Here’s a link to Pamela’s article Your Writing Needs Exercise Too!

1. What inspired you to write this book?
Much of the inspiration came from personal experiences from past relationships from myself or from friends I know.
2. Are any of the stories in this book true events?
A large portion of the stories in Bayou Drama are based on true events, however I will not say which ones J
3. How do the stories relate to your life?
Most of the stories in this book relate to me in the past two major relationships (marriages) I was in and the trials I went through
4. Do you have any other books for the future?
I am near completion of my second book WHEN A GOOD MAN GOES BAD. This book I am extremely proud of because once I started on this my imagination went wild and everything seemed to fall into place.
5. What are your plans for your literary future ?
If the LORD says the same, I plan to make this a full time venture. I feel a career in what you love is better than a career you are in need of doing.
6. Do you reflect any of your characters and if so which one(s)?
I think Roger in Take Care Of House and Home would best describe. Also Michael in The Man I Used To Be as far as his love for his wife (don’t ya’ll start anything my wife would lose her mind and go postal on me in here…LOL!)
7. What would you do if you are as successful as Eric Jerome, Carl Webber, Zane, or E. Lynn?
Give praise that I finally made it doing something I love; pay some bills off and try to invest in some sound stock. Finally quite my job and do this on a full time basis.
8. Was it difficult getting this book started and published?
Not really I knew this was something I wanted to do so I made up my mind to get it done and I did it. I researched and did a lot of homework, phone calls, and Myspace comments to various authors and websites and took the advice I received to heart.
