how it all began

The Royalty Book Box was created by New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Shanora Williams. She doesn’t get much down time as a full-time writer and mother, so when it just so happens she does, the only thing she wants to do is read a good book and feel good doing it.

As a mother of two young kids, she realized having alone time to refresh and breathe is vital. During the allotted time, she would do things, like take a nice shower or bath, apply a face mask or cream, or sip on a cup of tea and curl up with a good book. She did it so religiously that she wondered, “Why isn’t there something out there to make this experience even better?”  That’s how the idea of the Royalty Book Box came along!

Shanora is a firm believer in self-care and me-time. After dealing with depression and several bad cases of anxiety, she found the perfect remedy to feeling better, and that was to take an hour or two to unwind, relax, and take care of herself.

It still happens to this day (but only when her kids are asleep). To Shanora, her “me-time” is heavenly and much needed for her mind, health, and spirit.
