The Shelf Aware Books podcast:

an intimate affair with you, me, my inner fangirl, and the most fun, engaging, and authentic authors on the planet.

Looking to read your way out of a crappy situation?

I am overly enthusiastic at a chance to connect YOU with those who wield the power of the right words to help you out when you’re struggling and trying to read your way out of really difficult situations (a.k.a. 2020).


Have you ever wanted to hear what your favorite self-help book authors are like in real life? Do you wonder if they struggle and if they actually do what they write about? I interview Psychologists, Social Workers, Coaches and other Mental Health workers about how to put all of their knowledge to practical use to help you live a happier and more fulfilling life.
