Meet The Authors

Shelly Bond

Shelly is an artist, author, co-founder of Voices Rising Press, Reiki Master, yoga teacher, blogger, podcaster, and creator of Yoga Bliss with Shelly. She lives in the heart of the Rocky Mountains along with her husband, three ginger children, and two dogs.

When she is not immersed in her children, nephews, nieces, sisters, or mountains of laundry, you will find Shelly summiting creativity by pausing and inhaling nature around her, practicing yoga, reading, or writing whatever is overflowing her heart. As a personal growth advocate and seeker of the truth, acceptance and understanding play an essential role in Shelly’s life. She embraces the power of healing through writing and comes to this work with a passion for helping women, especially mamas, who feel lost and want to find their personal power through self-care and authenticity. Shelly believes the ability to heal–whether mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual–is within us all.

Sarah Caton

Sarah worked as a biologist in Rocky Mountain National Park after college, thinking she was going do that forever. But life diverted her to becoming a mother and owning a preschool in Boulder, CO. She is very grateful for all the experiences and beautiful connections made in those nine years, however she found the work to be exhausting and felt like business ownership took everything out of her.

She realized what she really wants to do with her one, precious life is make art, write books, and play music. So she closed down the school, moved into the mountains and started aiming to support herself with her true passions. Now her dreams are coming true. Sarah has co-founded Voices Rising Press and this year she plans to publish her first book, record her first album and has started booking music gigs again after a very long hiatus.

She is at a place in her life where she lets her heart lead the way and believes love is the answer to every question. By sharing her authentic voice Sarah hopes to help others heal and follow their own dreams as well.
