Pamela Garcia Rooney
Pamela García Rooney was raised on the US-Mexico border, in Laredo, Texas, by evangelical Christians who convinced her she was a faith healer. She was ten.
Pamela went on to study and study some more. She graduated in English from the University of Texas at Austin, where she focused on poetry and short fiction. She earned a master’s in counseling psychology and then trained as an actor and playwright for four years. All of which made her one of the most qualified middle and high school English teachers, while she worked on her writing projects.
Her break came in 2018 when, after studying at Script Anatomy, she became a fellow of the 2018 NBC Writers on the Verge program and the 2018 NHMC writing program. (Check out her testimonial video!) In addition to being on the 2018 Young & Hungry List, her feature script Me & Tammy Faye at the Betty Ford Clinic is on The Black List 2018, the 2019 Bitch List and the inaugural 2019 GLAAD List, a catalog of the most promising unmade LGBTQ-inclusive film scripts.
She now writes full-time and lives in LA with her husband and two daughters. Most recently, Pamela was staffed on the mid-season NBC family drama Council of Dads and the upcoming Netflix limited series Selena.
Pamela is represented by Kailey Marsh at Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Antoni Kaczmarek and Martin To at A3 Artists Agency. You can find her on Instagram @p.garcia.rooney
