Mollie Player

Mollie Player is just a regular person. But that doesn’t mean she can’t at least attempt feats of great strength. Like overcoming depression. Getting skinny. Never arguing again. And, of course, finding inner peace. Her plan: Read great books and implement their advice–then pass along everything she learns.

The results so far: her Mystical Memoir series, starting with You’re Getting Closer: One Year of Finding God and a Few Good Friends; her self-help books, including The Emergency Diet: The Somewhat Hard, Very Controversial, Totally Unheard of and Fastest Possible Way to Lose Weight; and her blog, Suddenly Awesome.

At Suddenly Awesome, she shares success stories about overcoming depression through spiritual practice, plus stories about other stuff that makes her otherwise ordinary life suddenly awesome. Subscribe for free to get a success story a month. Sometimes two.

Player lives in Seattle, Washington. She occasionally takes on freelance writing projects for awesome clients.

All of Player’s ebooks, all of the time, are free. See the books page for more information.

Reader testimonials:

“This is the kind of writing that makes me feel as if I’d sat down with the author on the sofa with cups of tea and we were talking together for hours. The style is so vulnerable …” – Heather

“Player’s chatty style evokes a realism and empathy for the story. One is able to feel her pain.” – Anonymous

“Player’s writing approach really reels in the reader into the atmosphere and the circumstances. There are solid moments where without having an objective point of reference to relate to, the reader still manages to relate due to the way in which the author gets the reader involved.” – Kade

“My life has changed after reading this book. I thought it might be a book that I could share but it is not. It is a beautiful keepsake and I know I will read it many more times. I felt so many emotions and to be honest I wish it did not end. This writing is so profound.” – Patty
