More About the Author

Erika Oliver is a recovering pessimist who shares her journey to optimism with honesty, humor and practical advice. Her first book, "Three Good Things: Happiness Every Day, No Matter What!" tells the story of how Erika and her husband, Mark, turned their negativity around by sharing 3 good things about each day.

"Three Good Things: A Coloring Book for Everyone!" displays Erika's art and positive sayings to help people tap into their creativity and relax so they are able to choose a positive approach.

Erika's latest book, "Happy Crap: The Power of Positive Assumptions" offers an easy 3-step approach to creating a positive story when we don't have all the facts. The book includes 8 tools that Erika has used for herself, with people and work teams to create a "Happy Crap" habit. "When we don't have all the information, our brains make up crap to fill in the blanks. If we are going to make up crap, why not make it "Happy Crap"?" asks Erika.

With her two teenage boys and husband Mark, Erika enjoys adventures and sharing her on-going journey to optimism by writing, speaking and coaching to help people choose all good days.

Format: Perfect Paperback
If you love the title, you're going to love the book even more. The author's authentic and humorous voice brings a high level of credibility and profundity to this light-hearted read. Oliver shares simple, concrete insights into how to overcome negative thinking and get the crappy crap out of your life once and for all. Through stories and exercises, you will begin to change your thoughts and direct your mind towards more positive thinking. Put those boring psychological journals away and let the simple, fun, effective tools shared by a woman who's been there, and admits she sometimes still goes there, lead you to the light. Change your thoughts, change your life. We can all have more happy and less crappy thanks to Erika Oliver.
