Press Release: L.A. Riots Spawn Novel

Written by Pam Ward and inspired by real-life events, ‘Want Some Get Some’ is the topical tale of Trudy, AKA: Trudy with the Booty, a young woman whose life is twisted upside down by her ex, Lil’ Steve. “Trudy is a survivor, and I see a lot of beauty and fierceness in that. As someone who has witnessed and experienced violence, I wanted to explore this theme within the backdrop of Los Angeles,” says the author. ““I wrote WANT SOME GET SOME on my front porch during the three week hiatus the riot created from my design business. None of my clients wanted to come where I worked off Crenshaw and Adams so I had a great window to do something else creative.”

Reviews for Want Some Get Some

  • Books To Mention (B2M)

    Want Some Get Some relates a story about greed and the destruction that follows.Will they survive, will they get what they want or will some get what they deserve? A great story unfolds in this wild and at times frightening read. Want Some Get Some is an exhilarating novel that won’t let readers down.” - BOOKS TO MENTION, Karmi Ray, B2M Book Reviewer

  • APOOO Book Club

    One firecracker of a novel! Not only is there plenty of action and suspense, but there is also a hint of romance. Readers might need to buckle their seat belts and hold onto their seats, because this novel will take you on an intense ride that you will surely not forget! -APOOO Book Club, Sista Turning Pages

  • Citygirl Review

    Couldn’t Put This Book Down!, I always glance inside a book to read a few paragraphs before making a purchase – just to get a feel of it. Well, let me tell you, I was hooked on this one before I even walked out of the store! You feel like you’re in the story – watching from the sidelines and sweating with them in the L.A. heat. I loved this gritty tale and can’t wait to hear more from this author! - Citygirl Reviews


  • Amazon review

    If women ran the world, Pam Ward would be our cult leader. Filled with savage wit, this street story moves from killer moods to bank teller calm. It’s pure LA with palm trees and an Ice Berg Slim punch. You better ask somebody. This one is highly recommended.- AMAZON
