When young Shelley Brown's secret journal was discovered by her preteen classmates, she found herself on a rollercoaster to a freight train down a rabbit hole. Like many, she then spent decades trying to fit in and get off the ride.

In her new book Weird Girl Adventures from A to Z, Brown's escapades entertain audiences with her witty, sometimes angst-filled and often hilarious stories about real life. Through her childhood of pink possibilities to countless misfortunes of the hair, body and beauty kind, and a string of lookin' for love in all the wrong online places, Brown discovers along the way that she no longer had to be who others thought she should be.

With boldly titled chapters including, "Ooops, there goes my vagina," "Miss Diagnosed," and "The girl draggin' the tattoos," Brown produces a "compilation of sweet, salty and deliciously snack-sized tales that will make you laugh, cry, nod and, most of all, celebrate your own weirdness," states Leslie Ehm, WSJ, USA Today and Amazon #1 bestselling author of Swagger.

A fusion of Erma Bombeck meets Sex in the City, Weird Girl Adventures is "Equal parts honest, raw, funny, and empowering," says Laura Gassner Otting, WashPost bestselling author of Limitless.

A corporate strategist who spent 25 years practicing the fine arts of mergers, acquisitions, downsizings, public-private transitions, acts of God, performance reviews, KPIs, workplace cultures, and more, marathon runner Brown kept her weird to herself until her vertebrae collapsed, forcing her to rethink who she was, and why. Through this adversity, she tapped into her own fearlessness to take the stage with her innovative W.E.I.R.D. program, a fun, engaging session designed to teach corporate leaders and employees how to be the drivers of their own awareness so they can be more effective, productive, and present. Her popularity and repeated requests for her stories prompted Brown to pen her first book, Weird Girl Adventures From A to Z.

"Weird Girl Adventures is filled with stories that will have you laughing so hard you're going to pee, crying because you feel all the FEELS, nodding because, hell yeah, you think the same thing," states Teresa Quinlan, founder of IQ+ EQ+TQ

"Shelley Brown shows us how to cherish ourselves with all the quirks that make us beautiful humans," says Jeanette Bronée, culture strategist, author and speaker.

About the Author

Author Shelley Brown is a mindfulness educator and speaker best known as the creator of Weird Girl, a series of humorous essays written about real life experiences. Born and raised in Chicago, she graduated from DePaul University with a communications degree and served over 25 years in corporate America, practicing the fine art of mergers, acquisitions, downsizings, public-private transitions, acts of God, performance reviews, KPIs, workplace cultures, and more. In 2014, Brown faced her greatest challenge when she suffered a serious spinal injury. After a lifetime of fitness that included 25 marathons, six ultra-marathons, and countless half-marathons, she found herself living with chronic pain and impaired mobility. The incapacitating injury coupled with shifting circumstances at work took a toll and began to hold Brown captive in a persistent state of anxiety. With marathons and global meetings now in her rearview mirror, Brown studied the dynamics between psychology and stress, and trained her mind to em-brace the art of mindfulness to help find balance and restore meaning to her world. Now living life with gratitude and joy, Brown is a national educator helping organizations of all sizes to bridge the gap between personal, professional, and leadership development through her W.E.I.R.D. at Work program. Besides her dog and boyfriend, Brown's greatest joy is creating art and inviting women from all walks of life to embrace their inner weird girl and join what she affectionately calls the inclusive weirdness of humaning.
