NON-FICTION, ADAMS MEDIA (SIMON & SCHUSTER)

This is mindfulness for people who can't sit still. It starts from the ground up to help you build a meditation practice that can help you to be less reactive and more calm. It's sort of a book about meditation. But it's also about resilience, emotional awareness, and personal growth.

About

Hiya, I'm Carley

I’m a writer and researcher exploring the stories and ideas behind why we do what we do in love and work for those curious to understand more about themselves, others, and the world.

I'm a storyteller at heart. Stories reach us in ways that move, teach, and inspire us. Whether through non-fiction books and articles or through short stories and (soon!) novels, I write to connect, challenge, and make space for people to feel seen and understood.

I told myself: There must be people whose job it is to use the right words, put things in a way... who when their heart beats, can get other people's hearts to beat.
