It was such a great surprise to get hooked up with Gloria. Someone who had seen my online magazine sent me a message that Gloria’s’ book would be perfect for a magazine named On Purpose…
I checked out the book and immediately agreed. The chapters are full of great stories about show business, mystery, miracles spiritual understanding, science and faith along with a song per chapter… very cool..
It was such a treat speaking with Gloria. She is so full of fun, love and energy. If I wouldn’t have reminded her that she had another appointment, she would have been thrilled to talk all day and I would have been thrilled to have her do that.
Gloria is just full of wonderful compelling stories of life, success, hardship and perseverance.
I really enjoyed this one and thank you Gloria for being such a wonderful guest. I would be happy to have you on again so we can really dive into some juicy topics.

“It’s not enough that Gloria Loring is a singer, songwriter, and actress, and the mother of music star Robin Thicke, now she proves that she is a full-fledged star in the world of personal growth and self-help. Her book blends the celebrity world with her innate common sense and profound intuition to deliver her learnings and teachings wrapped up in a beautifully written gift to anyone searching for meaning.” – Leeza Gibbons, television journalist, health advocate and author
Ten million daily viewers loved her as Liz Chandler on the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Yet while the cameras rolled and the fictional plotline for Days unfolded each day, Loring was quietly wrestling with her own real-life dramas—the diagnosis of her young son’s diabetes, the unraveling of her marriage, and a nagging inner voice from childhood that told her something was wrong. Coincidence Is God’s Way of Remaining Anonymous is Loring’s spiritual exploration of how coincidence helped her make sense of life’s challenges and uncertainties.
Coincidence helped her raise $1 million for diabetes research; it arrived in the form of mysterious letters during her separation and eventual divorce from actor-writer Alan Thicke; and it helped her discover and then heal from the trauma of long-forgotten childhood sexual abuse. It also brought her a chance encounter with the man she is married to today.
With eloquence and humor, Loring takes readers on a quest for a deeper understanding of life’s journey and the role coincidence plays in all of our lives, revealing that even the most difficult circumstances can be beneficial. Her experiences may be just the evidence readers need to begin watching more closely what they are attracting and what they are running from in their own lives. While coincidences may appear to come out of the blue, Loring suggests that we can all play a starring role in their appearance.
“For years, I’d been waiting for someone else to make (my life) better. You’d have thought I was starring in “The Perils of Pauline.” In truth, I wasn’t a victim, I was a volunteer. . . . Coincidence gave me an experience of the lesson I needed to learn: You don’t have to wait for someone to save you.” From Coincidence Is God’s Way of Remaining Anonymous
Titled with a quote by Albert Einstein, Coincidence is God’s Way of Remaining
Anonymous is an autobiography detailing a series of extraordinary coincidences.
Given Gloria’s successes on stage and in television, no one would suspect the secrets that lay hidden beneath her celebrity status. Her father’s alcoholism, the struggle to find her own way after her parents’ divorce, living in a motel across from Piggly Wiggly, even dancing as a go-go girl to earn money for food. Is it any wonder she felt alone in the world?
Then coincidence stepped in to change her mind. She promised her four-year-old son she would work to end his diabetes. Someone, for some reason, left a card title “Expect a Miracle” in her “Days of our Lives” dressing room, twenty-four hours before she met the man who helped her raise $1 million for research with the Days of Our Lives Celebrity Cookbook.
A question from a friend led to her #1 hit “Friends and Lovers.” Coincidence arranged for a stranger to send her life-changing letters during her secret separation and eventual divorce from actor-writer Alan Thicke, and provided a sequence of esoteric experiences that helped her uncover and heal long-forgotten childhood abuse.
The book is being published October, 2012 by HCI, Inc., the original publishers of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Peppered with behind-the-scenes looks at “Days of Our Lives,” and stories of raising her superstar R&B sensation Robin Thicke, this book has its own original soundtrack co-written by Loring. Each chapter begins with a song, all of which are featured on her CD “Turn the Page.”
Although coincidence appears to come out of the blue, Loring knows that it’s possible to attract divine intervention in our everyday lives. Combining scientific observation, spiritual wisdom, and what Loring calls “EBL,” evidence-based living, this memoir offers a prescriptive, in-depth look at the spiritual dimension of coincidence: where it comes from, how we attract it, and how we use it for the betterment of ourselves and those we love.
Gloria Loring is the recording artist of the #1 hit song Friends and Lovers; co-composer of television theme songs Diff’rent Strokes and Facts Of Life; an audience favorite as “Liz Chandler” on Days Of Our Lives; spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; the author of five books benefitting people with diabetes;a keynote speaker for corporations and non-profits; and one of few artists to sing two nominated songs on the Academy Awards.
The depth and diversity of Gloria’s talents and skills are impressive. As a performer, she toggles from classic rock to standards, from Broadway to pop, in clubs, performing arts centers, symphonies, and casinos. She’s starred in movies of the week, television specials, and theatrical productions, including a national tour of Anything Goes. She is a certified yoga instructor and an articulate champion of biomedical research.
Gloria’s new musical show TV Tunez, a celebration of television’s best theme songs that earned standing ovations, is in development for a Las Vegas run. She is currently in the studio with producer Ted Perlman and songwriting legends Burt Bacharach and Desmond Child.
Standing ovations greeted Gloria’s recent concerts with The Palm Beach Pops Symphony in tribute to the Streisand Songbook. The Palm Beach Daily News raved, “Loring commanded the stage from Note One… First and foremost, the lady came to sing — and sing she did — bringing the right combination of pipes and acting chops to give the evening’s tall order its due.”
After her four-year-old son was diagnosed with diabetes, she created and self-published two volumes of the Days Of Our Lives Celebrity Cookbook which raised more than $1 million for diabetes research. She has also written Kids, Food and Diabetes, Parenting a Child with Diabetes, The Kids, Food & Diabetes Family Cookbook, and Living With Type 2 Diabetes: Moving Past the Fear.
Gloria’s newest book, a spiritual autobiography titled Coincidence Is God’s Way of Remaining Anonymous, details a series of extraordinary coincidences that transformed her life and provides insight into how each of us can use coincidence for good. It is represented by William Gladstone of Waterside Productions whose clients include Neale Donald Walsh and Eckhart Tolle.
She has shared the stage with the Pointer Sisters, the Supremes, Billy Crystal, Bill Cosby, and Bob Hope, and performed on numerous award shows, including the Emmy Awards, Academy Awards, and Golden Globes. In the beginning of her career, Gloria was profiled in an hour-long documentary, “Two Singers,” with the legendary Aretha Franklin.
Gloria is featured on saxophone hottie Jimmy Sommers’ CD, Time Stands Still, singing the Peggy Lee classic, Fever. In an intriguing twist, her newest CD, A Playlist, features her R&B sensation son, Robin Thicke, on two tracks, and days after its release, jazz guitarist Gil Parris invited her to record Robin’s mega-hit Lost Without You with him.
Gloria was honored by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation with the Lifetime Commitment Awardand the Founders Award from the National Disease Research Interchange. The Miss America Organization gave her the Woman of Achievement Award, an honor she shares with past recipients Barbara Bush, Roslyn Carter, and Hillary Clinton. She is listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women.
