Hello, I'm Deborah Holmén, an author based in the United States. My latest book, It Takes A Lot of Sh*t to Grow Beautiful Flowers: A Gardener's Guide to Life is set to be released in the Summer of 2024.

In all of my writing, I strive to create an environment where people feel comfortable sharing their stories. My books, articles, and essays are on topics ranging from spirituality and personal growth to health and wellness. 

Together, we can transform our lives, heal from past traumas, and grow into the best versions of ourselves. I invite you to explore my work and join me on this journey towards a healthier, happier life.


In her insightful and unconventional memoir, It Takes A Lot of Sh*t to Grow Beautiful Flowers: A Gardener's Guide to Life, author Deborah Holmén teaches us that the challenges and strife we face in life are actually there to make something beautiful out of it.


Holmén shares a unique perspective on life based on her experiences as a daughter, sister, parent, and teacher. She demonstrates how even the most challenging and unpleasant situations can be transformed into something beautiful and meaningful. This book is filled with her wisdom and wit, offering readers key takeaways to cultivate a beautiful life.


Just as a flower can thrive with proper care and attention, every person should have the opportunity to succeed regardless of their circumstances.
