Live Happy Science Editor Paula Felps has worked as a freelance writer and editor since 1998. Covering topics ranging from health and fitness to luxury cars and travel to business and technology, she has written for such publications and websites as Executive Travel, American Driver, Self, Reserve, HI Luxury, Go Magazine, Private Clubs, Earth911.com and iVillage.com.
Much of her writing has been on subjects that she is passionate about – including music, environmental issues and personal wellness. She is the author of six published books and has served as ghostwriter or editor on nearly a dozen other book projects, ranging on topics from business to spirituality.
In addition to her work as a writer and editor, Paula is an advocate for sexual abuse survivors and founded the Sexual Abuse Resource Network in 2011. When she isn’t at her computer, she is probably practicing yoga or doing something with her two Boston terriers.
When the first World Happiness Report was released on April 1, 2012, it became the first report to provide a global look at happiness and well-being ̶and to look at the role public policy could play in a country’s happiness.
