Caroline-5Caroline Foran is the number 1 international bestselling author of Owning It and The Confidence Kit. Her third book – NAKED: Ten Truths To Change Your Life – will be published in May 2020. Caroline is also a number 1 podcaster, award-winning journalist and public speaker.


NAKED: Ten Truths To Change Your Life is Caroline’s third book to be published with Hachette in May 2020. This book follows a similar, no-frills structure to her previous two books as the author explores the power of vulnerability, how it can become our greatest strength, the behaviour and thought patterns that might not be serving us all that well and how we can remedy them to create the life we want. Complete with expert input and Caroline’s signature wit and personal experience, NAKED is set to be another bestseller for the Irish author. PRE-ORDER the book here.


Owning It was her first book, chronicling her experiences with anxiety and offering her ‘Assess and Address Approach’. Following its release in May 2017, it remained at the number one spot for 16 solid weeks. She was also nominated for a Popular Non-Fiction Book of the Year Award in the 2017 Book of the Year Awards. She didn’t win that one (sob) but she did win the Gamechanger award at the 2017 U Magazine Awards which glistens on her mantlepiece and is nominated as a ‘Thought Provoker’ for the 2018 Xpose Benefit Awards.

The Confidence Kit – her second book  was also a bestseller and tackles our struggles with the fear of failure, the confidence gap between men and women and so much more, offering a toolkit to help give your confidence a kick up the proverbial.


All books are being published in France, Germany, Russia and rather excitingly in the US and Canada. Owning It has been reimagined as Own It for the US release and received two incredible blurbs from two New York Times Number One Bestselling Authors – Jenny Lawson and Sarah Knight. The Confidence Kit will be retitled ‘You Got This’ for an April 2020 release.
