Author and Publisher

Pamela McColl is an independent award-winning book publisher based in Vancouver, British Columbia. She has had a longstanding interest in the tobacco issue. In 2012, this culminated in her publication of the first-ever, smoke-free edition of the famous holiday poem, Twas The Night Before Christmas. This beautifully illustrated book generated international media attention to the impact of tobacco imagery on youth culture, especially in movies. Pamela initiated the Western Canadian Smoke-Free Movies Committee and continues to work towards changes in film classification in order to better protect young audiences from the influence of tobacco. And she has just written and published a book on pregnancy and smoking cessation, Baby and Me, Tobacco Free. Pamela and her work have been featured in the international media, print, TV and radio appearances including The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, New York Post, The Huffington Post, Los Angeles Times, Vanity Fair, The National Post Macleans Magazine, and National Public Radio, "The View" with Barbara Walters.
