Sharing my passion for writing and pets. I truly believe there are few experiences in life more compelling than saving the life of another being. Pamela Foland
Host Pamela Foland
Pamela Foland grew up in Plano, Texas. Her love of animals started at a very young age. Even though she was surrounded by a house of pets, Pamela was determined to help every animal she saw. As a child, she was constantly bringing home stray dogs, and injured birds. As she entered high school, her love of animals was combined with her growing love of science. She enjoyed her science classes so much that every year what she wanted to study in college changed. Since Pamela knew she wanted to work with animals after college, she decided that a Biology degree would be best for her. She graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a minor in Business in 2005. For the ten years after college, Pamela worked at pet hotels as a dog trainer and pet CPR and first aid class instructor. She remembers this time fondly since Pamela was surrounded by pets and pet-lovers at a job that didnít feel like work. It has been her own house full of pets that has inspired Pamela to start writing her book series. Pamelaís middle grade fiction series, Megan World, is based on her own cats. Six years ago, Pamela found and raised an abandoned litter of day-old kittens. This experience was so incredible, that Pamela started her Meganís World series by having thirteen-year-old Megan learn about pet care by bottle raising her own abandoned litter of kittens. Pamela hopes that younger readers will enjoy the stories of Megan and the pets she cares for as well as learn about what it takes to have a pet. Pamelaís picture book series, Sonny the Wonder Dog, is based on her real-life dog, Sonny. In his short nine years of life, Sonny shared an incredible bond with Pamela. The only trick Sonny loved to do was his reading flash cards. Pamela was able to teach him words, numbers, shapes, colors and even physic equations. Since Sonny passed away, Pamela has developed the Sonny the Wonder Dog series to explain why Sonny was so smart- he just had to be an alien from another planet. Pamela truly believes there are few experiences in life more compelling than saving the life of another being.
