If you’ve ever wanted more creativity and joy in your life, then do we have the Art & Soul, Reloaded show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Pam Grout, #1 new york times best-selling author, repeat guest, and the author of a beautiful new book and treatise on rediscovering your creativity, Art & Soul, Reloaded: A Yearlong Apprenticeship for Summoning the Muses and Reclaiming Your Bold, Audacious, Creative Side.

And that’s just what I want to talk with her about today, about how to summon your muses and reclaim your bold, audacious creative side.






Pam Grout is a hopeless romantic who still believes the world is a beautiful place, that people are noble and that anything is possible.

For a living (and she always wonders why people think that’s such an important question), she writes books and articles for such magazines as People, Cooking Light and Travel & Leisure. She also enjoys writing bedtime stories for her daughter, but that’s more about making a life than a living. She’s keenly aware there’s a huge difference.

In making a life, she has traveled to all the world’s continents, learned 59 ways to make a fort out of sofa cushions, perfected a mean tennis forehand and volunteered at a women’s prison and free health clinic.

She lives in Lawrence, Kansas with her daughter, Tasman. Check out her sometimes updated website at
