Harper Horizon Inks Publishing Deal with Acclaimed Actors Teresa Palmer and Sarah Wright Olsen, Co-Founders of Top Parenting Site, YOUR ZEN MAMA

Harper Horizon has secured the US rights to publish and distribute Zen Mamas: Finding Your Path Through Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond as a must-have parenting resource from Teresa Palmer and Sarah Wright Olsen. The book will arrive in US stores on April 6, 2021—just in time for 2021 Mother’s Day celebrations.

As the co-founders of Your Zen Mama (YourZenMama.com) — one of the most popular and trusted parenting sites worldwide — Palmer and Olsen have established a loyal following with their highly personal and delightfully entertaining expressions of motherhood. In Zen Mamas, Palmer and Olsen offer readers the essential parenting knowledge they’ve collected over the years, sharing their personal struggles, joyful moments, and hard-won realizations. In addition to advice from their lived experiences, the book features keen insights from expert mentors addressing topics such as prepping for pregnancy all the way through birth, the first twelve weeks with your newborn, and figuring out the kind of parent you want to be long term. Whether it’s dealing with fertility challenges or pregnancy loss, riding out a long and complicated labor, or juggling multiple kids (and work!), these mamas have been through it—and have written a gorgeous book to help readers find their own zen on the journey of parenthood.

Teresa Palmer is a mother of three, Bodhi, Forest and Poet, and stepmother to Isaac. She has starred in many major films, including Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge, for which she received an AACTA nomination for Best Supporting Actress, and Ride Like a Girl, the biopic of trailblazing Melbourne Cup winner Michelle Payne. She is currently starring in the Sky series A Discovery of Witches while running the plant-based wellness brand Lovewell.

Sarah Wright Olsen is a mother of two, Esme and Wyatt, with a third baby on the way. Sarah has starred in many TV shows and movies including Mad Men, Parks and Recreation, The House Bunny, American Made, and most recently, Spinning Out on Netflix.
