A little about us

The team at Golden Oak Press draw inspiration from 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 catalyst behind the themes of their current titles: 

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

The founder and writer Shara (Drysdale who has also written as 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 England.

 

The team's real education however is the journey of life itself. Within both their work and travels, they are passionate about helping individuals to flourish, by  celebrating and embracing their unique strengths and potential. 

 

Our aim is for our message of courage and hope to reach people around the globe to help inspire sustained resilience and lasting positive change.
