By: Roslyn Franken
SPRING HILL, Fla. - Nov. 22, 2016 - PRLog -- Roslyn Franken, author of Meant to Be: A True Story of Might, Miracles and Triumph of the Human Spirit, presents powerful inspirational programs based on her new book which relates the true story of her Jewish parents as two young prisoners of war held captive in opposite sides of the world who eventually meet and find enduring love against all odds.

Roslyn's mother, Sonja Franken, was in the concentration camps of Nazi Europe surviving Auschwitz, and her father, John Franken, was a prisoner of war in Japan surviving the Nagasaki atomic bombing. Their extraordinary life story relayed in their daughter's book was also the subject of a television documentary that was nominated for a Gemini award.

Roslyn Franken's own survival of cancer at the age of 29 is credited to her resiliency inspired by her parents' strengths in overcoming their struggles.

Her first book entitled The A List: 9 Guiding Principles for Health Eating and Positive Living  features principles she developed that helped her lose unwanted weight and reach a healthy lifestyle.

Franken has a Masters Degree in Human Systems Intervention (the study of how people self-learn and change as individuals and in groups) and a Bachelor of Business Administration from Concordia University in Montreal, certification in Organizational Psychology with a focus on executive coaching through the Professional School of Psychology in California and MBTI® Personality Type Assessment Qualification from Psychometrics Canada.
