More About the Author

I have eleven books to my credit. The biggest seller is Creating a Charmed Life; my two Oprah-featured titles are Shelter for the Spirit and Lit from Within; and my newest book is Main Street Vegan. This one has led to such delightful projects as Main Street Vegan Academy, an in-person program to train and certify vegan lifestyle coach/educators (VLCEs); the Main Street Vegan radio show/podcast; and the February 2015 Main Street Vegan cruise -- details on all these are at www.mainstreetvegan.net.

I live with my husband, William Melton and our rescue-dog, Forbes, in a "green" condo in NYC. My daughter, Adair Moran, who helped a lot with Main Street Vegan, lives nearby and works as an actor, stunt performer, and licensed wildlife rehabber, working to build NYC's first rescue center for wild mammals, Urban Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitation.

Coming up: book number 12, The Good Karma Diet, slated for publication by TarcherPenguin in the spring of next year.

How can you not pick up a book that says, "Living a charmed life is your birthright, one that you can start to claim as soon as you take to heart--and put to action--the practical and spiritual tips you'll find here"?

Victoria Moran has written another "charmed life" how-to book: "Living a Charmed Life: Your Guide to Finding Magic in Every Moment of Every Day." This one is composed of 50 chapters, which are essentially instructions on how to live a life of happiness, contentment, and prosperity. Each chapter is end-tagged with a Lucky Charm, a nugget of inspiration to kick-off the action required to apply the lesson of the chapter.

Moran's approach is effective because it's personal. She uses her own experiences and explains how simple interactions and turns of events become essential triggers to charmed life opportunities. She told of a best friend Consuelo who said, "Remember when you take care of yourself, you take care of the universe" (Chapter 25: Take such good care of yourself). Another friend Mary Beth picked up pennies, gathered them in a "Seed Money" jar, and when the jar was full, she used the money to buy seeds for her beautiful and lush flower garden (Chapter 40: Consider yourself lucky).

"Living A Charmed Life" is brimming with actionable inspiration. Many of the tips can be considered common sense; for example, keep your sunny side up, give peace a chance, detox your body, and dress for the occasion. But Moran goes beyond common sense; she delves into hidden meanings, spiritual nuances, and the complexities of human nature, and then filters everything down to bullet lists of simple day-to-day action.

Probably the best lucky charm that Moran shares in the book is in the last few pages.

I have read all of Victoria's books, many more than once. Despite the fact that I was eagerly anticipating this latest work, I confess to wondering if there was anything more I could possibly glean from her wisdom bank. I need not have been concerned. Each new essay is like a breath of fresh air and inspiration. I have already incorporated numerous ideas into my daily life and know that there are more to discover in the pieces I've not yet read. The essays are quick reads and a great way to start or end your day. I tend to read one or two before bedtime and then mull over her words before falling asleep, planning how to apply her suggestions to my life the very next day. Victoria continually reminds me of all that is good and how to make the "not-so-good" better. Highly recommended.

I loved this book. It exceeded my expectations (and my expectations were high after Victoria's previous books).

Each time I finished reading for the day, I would think to myself, "life is good." Very empowering and uplifting.

Lots of practical tips and suggestions for improving your daily life. I'm better off after reading it.

Usually I don't like "self-help" books. I find them to be wordy, boring, and don't feel like I can actually use a lot of the information in them - whether it is because it doesn't apply to my season of life, something that is common sense that I already do, or just seems like a lot of drivel. This book, however, is truly a gem. There are 50 chapters-just a few pages each that - that could apply to me - my mom - my daughter - my best friend - very universal yet relevant.

My favorite was a chapter entitled "Expect the Best", where she tells a story about when she was 14 that she knew that she was going to meet the Beatles. She didn't just "want" to meet them - she "expected" to meet them - and she goes on to tell how she did (very cute story!) It reminded me of when I was a teenager and I applied to be in a Modern Miss pageant in my home state. Now, no one in my small town had ever heard of this pageant - but I just kept telling everyone - "they have to pick someone to be in it, why not me?" and that "someone has to win". Well, I was chosen and did win a trophy for Modern Miss Academic, though not the big title. I just knew that I was going to be there and win something.

The other incident I remember as a teen is applying for college. My dad had passed away my junior year of high school and the law had just been changed that SSI for dependents stopped at 18 - so I was not expecting any money from family or government for college. There was only one college that I applied to - Cornell College in Iowa. I didn't give a thought to the prospect that I would not be accepted or that I would not have the money to go. I guess you could say that I just Expected It.

Format: Hardcover
Self help and inspirational books are not normally my style. I find that most of the advice in most self help books does not apply to me or is given in such an uppity manner that I don't follow just to spite the author. This is not the case with Victoria Moran's Living a Charmed Life. She gives advice in such a friendly and engaging manner that it is difficult to disregard her.

There is so much useful advice in Living a Charmed Life that I think anyone can find something that can apply to them. For me, it was raw foods. It was only a small passage and easy to overlook but not for me. After I read it, I had the most intense craving for a good salad. At midnight this is most inconvenient. I decided to try the Live Till Five approach for a few weeks. So far, it has been great. I feel more energetic and healthier. I also am not getting hungry so often. I had never thought of a raw diet as something that would work for me but I now realize it might be perfect. I might do it full time. I am going to Borders to get some recipe books today. I also followed Moran's advice about progressively waking up earlier. So far, it has not been working so well. I got up at 12pm today. So sad. I might have to work on this a little more. Maybe get a louder alarm clock. Of course, some of the tips in Living a Charmed Life will not work for me. Such as giving up caffeine. I would be a walking zombie without three or four cups of coffee a day. I don't even want to think of the terrible headache I would get if I tried to stop.

Living a Charmed Life is a wonderful self-help book for women that can be useful to any woman. I can guarantee that almost every woman will find something that can be useful for them.
