New Year,
New Books,
New Adventures

Ann Douglas has just finished writing a new parenting book -- a book for parents who have a child with a mental illness. The book will be published by HarperCollins Canada in January 2015. 

And speaking of 2014 book releases.... As you may recall, in 2013, HarperCollins Canada acquired Canadian rights to Ann's bestselling The Mother of All Books series. In mid-2014, HarperCollins Canada will release redesigned editions of The Mother of All Pregnancy Books and The Mother of All Baby Books, the two flagship titles in this highly popular Canadian pregnancy and parenting book series. The Mother of All Toddler Books and The Mother of All Parenting Books are scheduled for re-release in 2015.

Ann is speaking at a number of parenting and mental health conferences this year: on topics ranging from raising a mentally healthy child to mindful parenting. Please get in touch if you are planning an event and you are looking for a parenting speaker for either a small-group workshop or a keynote address. Ann would be delighted to work with you to come up with the ideal topic for your conference or other special event. If you're looking for some inspiration, you'll find a list of her most popular parenting and mental health presentation topics for 2014 right here.

And, finally, 2013 was a year of amazing personal transformation for Ann. She achieved her goal of losing 100 lbs. by her 50th birthday (which she celebrated in December). She is continuing to blog about her progress and the powerful link between mental health and physical health at
