About Pamela Olson

Pamela Olson grew up in small-town Oklahoma and studied physics and political science at Stanford University, class of 2002.

She lived in Ramallah, Palestine for two years, during which she served as head writer and editor for the Palestine Monitor and as foreign press coordinator for Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi’s 2005 presidential campaign. She's published stories and articles in CounterPunch, Electronic Intifada, Israel’s Occupation Magazine, and The Stanford Magazine among other publications.

In January of 2006 she moved to Washington, DC and worked at a Defense Department think tank to try to bring what she had learned to the halls of power. She eventually became disillusioned with the prospect of changing Washington from the inside, and in 2007, she left DC and started writing Fast Times in Palestine. She lives in New York now, and her book was published in May 2011.
