Authors Podcast - Episode 16 - Pamela Foland

March 30, 2018

Pamela Foland grew up in Plano, Texas.  She graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a minor in Business in 2005.

Her love of animals started at a very young age.  As a child, she was constantly bringing home stray dogs, and injured birds.

As an adult, her love of animals has only grown stronger.  Pamela has worked in numerous pet hotels as a dog trainer and is certified to teach pet first aid and CPR.  All her experience with pets culminated four years ago when Pamela found and raised an abandoned litter of day-old kittens.  Not able to part with any of these now-grown babies, Pamela enjoys going home to her "little munchkins" every night.  This experience gave Pamela the inspiration for her series debut, Megan's Munchkins.

Pamela will always have a special affinity with Megan because of their shared experiences.  She truly believes there are few experiences in life more compelling than saving the life of another being.

 

Megan's World Series:

  1. Megan's Munchkins

What's hidden in the darkness of Megan's closet?  Kittens!  Four abandoned

one-day-old kittens.  These helpless babies were starving in the hedges when thirteen-year-old Megan Thompson discovers them and decides on the spot that she must save them.  Knowing her parent's answer to her many pet requests, she decides to raise the kittens in secret.  Follow Megan across the next five weeks, as her life becomes an endless cycle of feeding schedules, vet visits, homework, household chores, and sneaking around.  Megan's dreams have come true with her four precious friends, but what will Megan's parents say about her furry secrets?  Will Megan be allowed to keep the kittens she loves with all her heart?

  1. Megan's Pet Sitting Adventure

Megan Thompson thought earning extra money for her kittens would be easy when she decided to pet sit.  She enlists the help of her best friend Jill for their first job, watching the Driscoll's pets.  Max, the over exuberant chocolate lab, has a knack for finding trouble. Holly, the finicky Burmese, tests Megan's pet care skills.  Taffy, the African gray parrot, has an advanced vocabulary and an attitude to match.  To make matters worse, Jill isn't exactly focused on the job. Is Megan in over her head?  Will treating the Driscoll's pets as her own be enough to keep them happy and healthy?

 

  1. Megan the Pet Whisperer

Megan Thompson is delighted when Dr. Newton asks for her assistance caring for a rescued capuchin monkey, Monty.  The rest of the vet staff is terrified of Monty; but from the first moment they met, he and Megan have a special bond.  Three days at the clinic allows Megan to see the inner workings of a vet clinic.  Now, Megan wants to help every scared animal she can.  Can she gain the staff's trust?  Will she ever be allowed to handle any other pet besides Monty?

Authors Podcast - Episode 15 - Cody Smith

March 15, 2018

Cody Smith is an electrical engineer my day, and author by night. He is the proud father of his 17 month old daughter, Nella, and happily married to his wife, Lauren, of 5 years.

Growing up, Cody was terrified of public speaking in any form or fashion. He grew up avoiding any opportunity to speak in front of an audience, and completely dreaded every moment leading up speaking whenever he had to.

He didn’t figure out how to get over his fear until he left the country (U.S.) on a trip to Honduras one summer during college. He learned that consistent exposure to whatever you fear is the key factor to conquering your fear once and for all.

Since then, Cody has turned his greatest fear into his greatest strength. He used public speaking to raise $17k to start a business in college. The funds were used to develop a game called Beep Boop. Overcoming his fear of speaking gave him a much needed confidence boost that he wanted to share with the world through his book Stage Fight: How to Punch Your Fears of Public Speaking in the Face!

About Yvonne

Yvonne was never sure if she really wanted children but knew that she was expected to get married and have a family, in that order. Somewhere in between her dreams of travelling and experiencing what life had to offer Yvonne did wish for the perfect family, a husband and four children. By the time she had reached her thirties this dream had fast lost its momentum, and when she had reached her mid-thirties Yvonne had given up on the dream of being a wife and mother. Because of her past Yvonne had decided that it was now time to live by her choices. Yvonne believed that the opportunity to become a mother had passed so it was time to move on. It wasn't until Yvonne met her husband at 38 her faith in love was reignited. A year into their marriage Yvonne and her husband decided to try for a baby, which led to the unexpected sadness that was to follow when Yvonne was informed that she had 'Unexplained Infertility'. While trying to understand her grief Yvonne was introduced to Gateway Women, where she is now on my journey of forgiveness and renewed self-discovery.

About Dreaming of a Life Unlived

Statistics show that one in five women in the UK have turned 45 without having children. Dreaming of the Life Unlived is a collection of stories and portraits of women who are childless by circumstance – women who are coming to terms with their grief and moving towards finding fulfilling lives without children.

Authors Podcast - Episode 9 - Kim Wymer

October 31, 2017

Kim Wymer is a Positive Empowerment Coach, Author & Speaker. In childhood she had been the class mouse, never daring to raise a hand or bring any attention to herself. She only wanted to pass through school unnoticed, smoke cigarettes in the school toilets and bunk off class. Kim never knew why she was so unconfident, why she’d rather die than stand up in front of a class of people and give a presentation, the only thing she knew was that she didn’t know what she wanted.

Having grown up punk in East London, married at twenty and working a job she hated, things weren’t looking too bright for Kim as she entered midlife. With one divorce, a failed relationship and a nasty drinking habit under her belt she knew that things for her had to change before her life collapsed under the weight of all the mistakes she’d made so far. It wasn’t until she received a package from her sister in Australia that she began to think there was more to this life than what she’d been doing so far. The package contained The Secret, and as she began to delve deeper into the world of positive thinking Kim realised how much of an impact she’d had on the things she’d experienced in my life so far, and what she needed to do in order to change that. But where do you start when you’re a single parent with no money, a crap job and a lifetime of bad habits to undo?

Kim started writing in 2011, feeling lonely and left alone with her thoughts, the only way she could get all of these issues off her chest was to write them down. She didn’t know at the time that her diary entries would provide the material for her first book Out of the Shadows.

“A frank, sincere and inspirational story of transformation.” - Sue Stone, The Sue Stone Foundation

“I couldn’t put the book down. It is honest and real. It resonated with me and I know you will relate to it too.” - Karin Ridgers, VeggieVision TV
