Pamela K. Long is an Americanmarker actress and writer, most known for her stints writing the CBS Daytime soap opera Guiding Light, from 1983 to 1986 and from 1987 to 1990.

Before she started in show business, she won the title of Miss Alabama in 1974. At the time, she was attending the University of North Alabamamarker, and was involved in the Phi Mu sorority. After graduation, she went to New York Citymarker and played Ashley Linden on Texas from 1981 to 1982.

In 1982, Long also became Head Writer of Texas. The show began to improve in quality, but the ratings in the United States remained in the basement. The show was more popular North of the US border. In Canada, Texas topped the daytime ratings charts for many weeks. The last episode of Texas aired on December 31, 1982.

In 1983, Long became Head Writer of Guiding Light, while former Texas Executive Producer Gail Kobe joined her.

Both of her stints were well-regarded and provided a renaissance for the aging show , at one point pushing the show's ratings to the #1 spot for three weeks in the summer of 1984 , dethroning then-powerhouse General Hospital from the top ratings spot. Long created some of GL's most memorable characters, like vixen Reva Shayne, haughty ice queen Alexandra Spaulding, and rough-around-the-edges ingenue Harley Davidson Cooper.

Long was once married to actor Jay Hammer and was credited for a time as Pamela Long Hammer. They have two sons together, Nick LongHammer and C.J. LongHammer
