A little about us

The team at Golden Oak Press is ever inspired by everyday stories of courage, determination and hope. The adventures of people, their families and 'four-legged friends' as they travel along the path of life.  These inspiring stories of courage and resilience shaped by the human qualities of love, resolve and hope are the inspiration behind the themes of our current titles: 

'Stand Tall Like A Mountain' and the new 'Bouncing, Bouncing Back'.    

The founder and writer Shara (who writes as Dr Shara Ray) holds a doctorate and first class honours degree within her studies of psychology. She extended her education in Zurich, Switzerland and also enjoyed early childhood training in green England.


The team's real education however has been and always will be the journey of life itself. Within both our work and travels we are passionate about helping individuals to flourish - to celebrate and embrace their unique strengths and potential. We hope that our message of courage and hope will reach people around the globe to help inspire sustained resilience and positive change.
