     Adria Manary has a unique blend of talents, many of which she is now devoting to helping individuals and companies reach their highest potential, while giving back to the world. Her company, Magic of Life Enterprises, produces books, products and seminars that assist people in finding and enjoying the true magic in everyday life – thus becoming happier and more productive individuals. She has made television appearances on the Sally Jessy Raphael show, MSNBC, and many local talk shows nationwide, such as Good Morning Oregon and Fox Morning News. She has also been interviewed on numerous radio shows across the country and has been featured in many newspapers and magazines, including a story in Women’s World magazine and the front page of the Family section of the Cincinnati Enquirer. She now hosts her own show on World Talk Radio entitled, The Mommy Magic Show.

     After earning degrees in both Communications and Psychology from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Ms. Manary started her career as the first woman on the marketing communications team at Westinghouse Headquarters. One of the projects that she helped to create and execute won the Gold Award at the New York TV and Film Festival. After leaving Westinghouse, she became the Vice President of Marketing for a small food company. From there she started a sports production company that hosted events in ten cities, raising corporate funds for the Special Olympics. The program was so successful that she was offered the Director of Development position for New York Special Olympics, where she raised over a million dollars for them. Adria moved back to Washington to marry and decided to try real estate, where she became the rookie of the year and sold an actual castle! Throughout all of her career changes however, she never stopped writing, which is her true passion. Thus, after having her first precious baby, she decided to live out her dream of writing for a living - partly because of her passion and mostly because she could not bear the thought of leaving her child! Since that decision, she has had two more beautiful children and written four books: Kennedys – The Next Generation; Touched By A Rainbow; Mommy Magic; and More Mommy Magic. She is also a contributing author to the series of books entitled: Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Soul; as well as: The Ugly Truth about Small Business and The Heart of A Mother.  In addition, Adria created and published the Washington Fun Times newspaper and has written numerous articles for other publications. She speaks nationwide on the subject of parenting and has recently added a new topic to her list of presentations entitled, More Heart…More Money, which provides meaningful ways to improve customer service and increase customer loyalty. In addition to print media, she wrote most of the lyrics and music for her CD, Precious Souls. Although Adria is a woman of many talents who has held many impressive titles, her favorite and most important title will always be, “MOM!”


506 Ways To Nurture Your Child, is the 2nd edition of the original MOMMY MAGIC . It offers a plethora of solid, thoughtful ideas to connect with your child; build their self-esteem; help them feel secure in an insecure world; and most of all, feel the unconditional love that is the most essential gift a parent can give.

MORE MOMMY MAGIC is also speckled with heartwarming stories, moving poetry and even a value based cartoon that has touched the hearts of thousands of parents.

Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, calls Ms. Manary's book, “Brilliant, joyful and compassionate.”

Having interviewed over 100 moms and having three children of her own, Ms. Manary speaks not only from book research, but also from experience and heart. She has received many glowing testimonials about her work from newspapers, magazines and most importantly - other moms.  Here is what a few of them had to say about her book:

"As a mother of a one-year-old little girl, I have read many, many books and articles on parenting in the past year or so. Your book, MOMMY MAGIC, is by far the most touching, inspirational and idea-filled book that I have come across. Thank you for making a difference in my life."


"I was feeling completely overwhelmed by the 24-7 aspect of motherhood. Fortunately, my neighbor gave me your book and I stayed up all night reading it. I can't thank you enough for giving me back the true feeling of what being a mother means, along with the tools I needed to face another day with my three young, adorable, but demanding children!"


"I didn't know you could sing, too! When I heard you sing “The Magic of Love” from your Precious Souls CD, my little girl and I both cried."


Mommy Magic is the first in a series of books entitled, The Magic of Life.  The second, Daddy Magic, will be out in the spring of 2007, with the Foreword written by Mark Victor Hansen.  Marriage Magic, the third book, will complete the first trilogy.
