About The Founder

Pamela Gail Johnson

Pamela Gail founded the Secret Society of Happy People in 1998 to provide a missing voice for those who are happy and want to express it without other people raining on their parade. The Society provided her with a unique opportunity to interact with thousands of happy, and not-so-happy people in their struggles to be happy most of the time.

She is the author of The Secret Society of Happy People’s Thirty-One Types of Happiness Guide released in November 2012 and  Don’t Even Think of Raining on My Parade: Adventures of the Secret Society of Happy People.

Pamela was named a semi-finalist in the search for the next Global Thought Leader in 2013.

Pamela lives in the Dallas area where she manages the Society including social media, writing the newsletter and blogs including Ask Pamela Gail: Where Happiness Meets Reality, speaks and trains.  She’s also working on her new book, The Secret Society of Happy People’s Happiness Handbook: Being Happy Most of the Time.

To keep herself happy Pamela has recently taken up yoga, cooks for her dog Tater, does wine tastings with friends, and loves to read.
