Hey! I'm Turia

Athlete, author, humanitarian,
motivational speaker & mum.


We all want more of it.

But can you actually get happier?

In ​Happy (and other ridiculous aspirations)​, I set out on a (dragon-free) quest to discover if ‘happy’ is, actually, an attainable goal, and not just a ridiculous aspiration.

My latest book. A bestseller. (And a personal fave!).

My Bestselling memoirs


My second book. What my publishers described as a “brutally honest” look at my journey so far. It dives into my relationships, what motivates me, my journey from a hospital bed to an ironman finish line, and all the strategies I’ve used to overcome my challenges along the way.


Everything to Live For

“Everything to Live For, is the story of one young woman’s survival against extraordinary odds, a testament to the human spirit.” I can’t describe it much better than that! My first book, and the one I recommend to anyone going through a hard time.

Turia's B-School Bonus

Books written specifically for kids and teens

Good Selfie

Simple strategies to help kids and teens build self-confidence, get through hard times and go after massive goals. Psychologist reviewed, and filled with stunning illustrations by Freda Chiu, this bestselling book is real, straight-talking and funny.
It looks great on a bookshelf (even better when dogeared and worn – the sign of a much loved companion), but we have ebook versions available too.


Unmasked Kids

Telling the story of Turia’s life before and after the fire, this young readers’ version of Turia’s bestselling memoir unmasks the real Turia: funny, fierce, intelligent, flawed. With a new foreword from Turia, additional content and a new Q&A section, this edition covers topics such as confidence, goal-setting, family and friends and happiness that will resonate strongly with tweens and teens.

Oh, and psst: this book is an EXCELLENT companion to Good Selfie!
