NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles-based actress and author Pamela Capone has penned her second book, I Punched Myself in the Eye, recounting true moments in her life that have made her who she is. From childhood drama to working with impoverished girls in Guatemala to casting-call nightmares and raising a family that is entertaining in its own right, Capone weaves humor and insight with nuggets of inspiration and truth, leaving readers uplifted in a way that few books do.
Born in the heart of Los Angeles, Capone was the youngest of nine children orphaned by their biological parents. Taken in by her foster parents at 18 months old, to this day Capone considers herself a rescue, and her adoptive parents heroes.
"My goal in writing I Punched Myself in the Eye is and was to help people see that it's often the small, unnoticed moments that pack the biggest punch, and to give meaning to the minutiae. I like to make people smile, laugh out loud and yeah, even cry, because to me, those are the moments that sustain us," says Capone. "A friend whose wife recently passed away from a three-year battle with brain cancer told me that he belly-laughed for the first time since before her diagnosis. For me, that was priceless."
Capone has coined her real-life stories (including her tale of the morning she woke up with a self-inflicted black eye) "messays." These entertaining, adventurous, often downright hilarious, and always piercingly poignant reflections deliver simple truths with fresh insight and plenty of laughs. Her latest title, I Punched Myself in the Eye, is about the things we all long for: discovering self-understanding in the nonsense, epiphanies in unexpected places, and redemption in everyday life.
Pamela Capone is the author of I Punched Myself in the Eye, which follows her debut title, The Little Girl Within: Overcoming Memories of Childhood Abuse and Abandonment. Capone lives in Southern California with her husband, John. Together they have two children and one grandpup. To learn more about Pamela, visit www.pamelacapone.com.
