Health Researcher + Ghostwriter

For the past twelve years, Shayne McClendon has produced over 25 books and several thousand articles in the health and wellness space as a researcher and ghostwriter.

There are few topics about physical human health that she has not covered extensively in the course of her career. 

She began to notice a distinct lack of information dealing with mental, emotional, and sexual health. Using her extensive research background, Shayne decided to share what worked to help her overcome her own trauma...and keep her firmly in the world.

Special Appearance on the Dr. Nandi Show

Shayne was honored to be invited to do an interview for the Dr. Nandi Show. Her segment was called “Can Romance Help You Live to 100?

As something of a romance guru, she was asked to speak about how important love and romance are to overall human health.

Even if you aren't in a relationship and even if the only place you can find romance is within the pages of a good counts.

Shayne's stories, characters, and outlook on relationships are everything I wish more writers understood and offered: love and support without all the toxic crap our culture has made so commonplace (jealousy, possessiveness, and objectification). Instead, she promotes empathy, consideration, and open (honest) communication between characters who are real, flawed, and human. Her stories offer tremendous cathartic release as well as humor and joy.

I have loved sinking into the world of books since a small child - my way of escaping the horrors of childhood. Then I was introduced to Shayne's writing. She puts so much passion, thought, feeling, sorrow, and understanding into her writing. Some of her books have allowed me to purge extreme pain and loss. I have cried, laughed, gotten angry, and so much more. I would highly recommend anyone (male or female) to read her writings - in any genre. She will open your eyes with her words.

There are so many things Shayne has brought into my life. An escape from the horrid reality of living with multiple chronic illnesses through her amazingly well-written books. The fantastic support when my husband got sick (and sadly passed away). Last, but absolutely never least, when I met her in person and discovered that she is just as awesome a person as she is a writer! Thank you, Shayne, for the wonderful impact you’ve had on my life in so many ways!

I discovered Shayne McClendon at a time in my life where I was simply existing day to day on the outside. On the inside, I was floundering. I had lost my husband unexpectedly a year earlier. A few inspiring words here and there and a beautiful photo, would help me breathe a little deeper.

Then she published her first book…and that's where I experienced the true magic of Shayne McClendon. An avid reader my whole life, it was natural to turn to books for comfort. Her stories grab hold of you and pull you in, her characters are three-dimensional. It was not long until there was enough of them to fill a universe. 

It didn't end there. I reached out and soon our correspondence developed into a friendship. I found her to have a wealth of information at her fingertips from her years of writing in the health and wellness industry. There was always an article for this or that.

It doesn’t matter if she’s writing about how to get rid of lice in your daughter’s curly long hair or the benefits of coconut oil or how important it is to take time to take care of your own mental health.


If there’s one thing you can do for yourself this week, this month, or this year...take the time to read this book and think about what it means to breathe deep, slow down, and find true contentment.
