Book Events

I have always wanted to do a book signing at University Bookstore and I got the chance! It was really exciting to be in such a well known bookstore and have my live event.

Sharon Ballantine is a life and parenting coach and the author of “The Art of Blissful Parenting.” In it she writes about the ways parents can build rich, lasting, meaningful relationships with their children. But it’s not all about the bliss. One of her suggestions: give yourself, not just your child, a time-out when things get stressful. Her reading and talk offers helpful tools and suggestions for any parent. Ballantine spoke at University Book Store on August 2.


East West Bookshop  |  August 2016
East West Bookshop was a great venue for my first workshop. I gave the attendee parents a written and verbal exercise that helped them identify and tap into their internal guidance system. We had a fun discussion on how they can use their internal guidance for more easeful parenting.

Queen Anne Book Company  |  July 2016
I had the honor of doing a book signing at our wonderful local bookstore, Queen Anne Book Company. I loved the experience of doing a reading for friends, family and local neighbors. I read from my book, “The Art of Blissful Parenting,” and especially enjoyed our Q and A session.
