Endorsements

"Pamela enabled me to couch my sit-com character as a new female archetype, and gave me a fresh approach to pitching that took me out of the personal and onto a higher plane. She also helped me shape my own feminine persona that I take into the room for business meetings. All of this in just a short session. Her insights are invaluable and I am delighted to recommend her to performers as well as writers."

Beyond the Hero’s Journey

Contrary to popular opinion, The Hero’s Journey is not the only mythic Theme. It’s certainly a good one but it is only one of many.
A few years after the publication of Hero With a Thousand Faces, Dr. Joseph Campbell modified his position and observed that for different times and places there were different mythic structures and archetypes.

This book introduces you to many other powerful Mythic Themes as identified by Pamela Jaye Smith, ranging from “About Face” to “Damsel in Distress”, from “Stealing Fire From Heaven” to “The Wakeup Call”. More information
