Norville is also a best-selling author and a passionate crafter. Her international best-selling book, Thank You Power: Making the SCIENCE of Gratitude Work for YOU details with striking precision the connection between gratitude and enhanced cognitive function and energy. The book was a New York Times best-seller as well as a best-seller in South Korea. Norville was also the co-author and contributor to the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul series and the author of several other self-help books including two best-selling children’s books and a number of books featuring knit and crochet patterns.

Norville is an advocate for self-care. While she advocates for others, she has turned that same focus inward losing over 30 pounds by cutting sugar out of her diet and undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid nodule. On the other side of both of those health issues, Norville speaks candidly about her health struggles and how she continues to better herself on a daily basis.

Dedicated to making a difference, Norville’s lectures are interactive, impacting and unforgettable.
