About The Author

Trauma survivor Kelly Browne evacuated her parents during the SoCalGas Aliso Canyon Blowout over Los Angeles—the worst environmental gas disaster in U.S. history. As her mother spiraled into a fatal cancer diagnosis from the toxic exposure, Browne's daughter was thrown from a horse at an unlicensed equestrian camp, breaking her neck. Browne sought trauma therapy for herself and family, digging deep to embrace the tools she teaches in this book, forging ahead with tenacity, acceptance, forgiveness, and navigating a way to find her personal peace amidst the pain.  
Browne is a well-known gratitude expert on thank-you notes for adults and children. She is the author of the bestselling series in its category, 101 Ways to Say Thank You: Notes of Gratitude for All Occasions (Sterling 2008, 2nd edition, 2015) and 101 Ways to Say Thank You! Kids & Teens (Cedar Fort, 2015), and 101 Ways to Say Thank You: Notes of Gratitude for Every Occasion (Adams Media/S&S, 2022).

"As children, we are taught to apologize even when we don't mean it-- teaching us to say things we don't mean. Kelly Browne rehabilitates us all by fearlessly showing us how to honor ourselves and others through the mindful act of apology and forgiveness. In this world, it is rare to be shown the steps to facilitate healing. Browne takes us through it all gracefully, showing us what it means to apologize and forgive. After reading her words, we are no longer people who say empty words. "
