Before she started in show business, she won the title of Miss Alabama 1974. From there she went to New York City and played Ashley Linden on Texas from 1981 to 1982. It was after the show ended that Long, who had already proven herself capable of writing a soap by penning scripts for Texas, moved to Guiding Light with former Texas executive producer Gail Kobe .

Long was once married to actor Jay Hammer and was credited for a time as Pamela Long Hammer.
