Hey, Y’all! I’m so glad you stopped by!
Hardcover Therapy was born in 2012 when I was literally obsessed with books! At that time, I wasn’t much of a reader, but that all changed after the birth of my daughter. I’m sure you can relate. I mean I used to watch my favorite shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Gossip Girl, etc, and then BAM… Carlee Bug is here and the only thing I knew was Disney. Y’all feel me?
As she got a little older she started dancing and while in the lobby I’d read 3-4 books a week. I didn’t care if I was sitting there or in the line at the grocery store. I couldn’t stop! (Please tell me I’m not alone?)
Needless to say, reading allowed me to escape the everyday hustle and bustle. Reading was literally my THERAPY, and so Hardcover Therapy was born as I became the “Go-to Mom,” for what to read next. That created a love for blogging that I had no clue even existed!
In 2013, I began to search for something new, and I started my first series. I was a girl who didn’t like to read or write in school. (Y’all know… the 3-page minimum and Cliff Notes were my friends.) In September 2013, the Full Circle Series was published and I was in LOVE with writing. Since then, I have written nine full-length novels and six short stories.
Over the years, I had to learn a new balance multiple times. Y’all know the only thing consistent is change. Some of my friends also began calling me “Super Mom” but that’s not the case. They couldn’t figure out how I could have such a positive outlook all the time, work full time as a teacher, have time with my family, train for a marathon, and run 3 online business while writing too. It’s not rocket science… I’ve learned to find the calm within my chaos. As the years have evolved, so I have I. I am no longer just a mom, wife, teacher, writer, reader, runner, Plunder Stylist, and NuSkin leader. I AM a full-time mom entrepreneur. I’ve embraced this life I love and strive for three things in life- POSITIVITY, CONSISTENCY, and ENCOURAGING others to find their calm within the chaos as well! Will you join me on this journey?
Starting in 2018, Hardcover Therapy will be the place for busy moms like yourself to have a few minutes to discover time saving tips, what new books are out there, how I’m surviving and how we all can take a few moments to ourselves daily because life is always BLESSED, sometimes STRESSED, and we are all READING OBSESSED!
With Love & Mason Jars,
Casey Peeler grew up in North Carolina and still lives there with her husband and daughter.
Growing up Casey wasn’t an avid reader or writer, but after reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston during her senior year of high school, and multiple Nicholas Sparks’ novels, she found a hidden love and appreciation for reading. That love ignited the passion for writing several years later, and her writing style combines real-life scenarios with morals and values teenagers need in their daily lives.
When Casey isn’t writing, you can find her near a body of water listening to country music and with a cold beverage and a great book.
