Pamela Capone, born in the heart of Los Angeles, 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.
A self-professed people watcher, Capone has been inspired by the “misunderstood” Mrs. Kravitz of the classic sitcom Bewitched, who Capone claims wasn’t nosey, but a pioneer who cared. A self-contained Neighborhood Watch, Mrs. Kravitz was a trailblazer, encouraging timid little girls like Capone to be curious.
Capone is a daughter, a sister, a mother, a wife, a friend, an avid supporter of IMA Guatemala, an actor, a public speaker, an evidence gatherer, a dot-connector and an author. Her second book, I Punched Myself in the Eye, released in 2015 and follows her debut title, The Little Girl Within: Overcoming Memories of Childhood Abuse and Abandonment, which chronicles Capone’s life beginning with her first memory of being placed in foster care.
Capone lives in Southern California with her husband, John. Together they have two children and one grandpup.
