My Morning Routine, the Book


After much secrecy I’m excited to finally announce that I, along with my co-author Michael Xander, have a book coming out!

My Morning Routine is being published by Portfolio/Penguin and will be available everywhere books are sold on 15 May, 2018. You can pre-order the book now in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.

This book has been a labour of love for over a year and a half. We were approached by an editor at Portfolio in the summer of 2016, and since then it has been all go. Between us we contacted 631 people in the space of six months, with a small number being whittled down and making it into the finished work. I was personally lucky enough to speak with everyone from retired U.S. Army four-star General Stanley McChrystal, to the president of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, Ed Catmull, to the life-changing tidying-upper herself, Japanese organizing consultant Marie Kondo.
