Pamela Gail founded the Secret Society of Happy People in 1998 to provide a missing voice for happy people who want to talk more about happiness without other people raining on their parade.

She is the author of Don't Even Think of Raining on My Parade: Adventures of the Secret Society of Happy People (PJ Press, June 2000).
Pamela lives in the Dallas suburb of Lewisville, works in business development for a Fortune 500 company. In her "free time" she writes the Society newsletter and manages all of the Society's social media. She's also working on her next book, The Secret Society of Happy People's Happiness Handbook: Being Happy Most of the Time.
