Show Notes

In this episode, I chat with Diane Castro, owner of Sweet Home Books, about her dedicated customer base, the skills she's learned since opening her indie bookshop, places to visit in Wetumpka, and local authors.

 Diane Castro opened Sweet Home Books in downtown Wetumpka, Alabama, in May 2021. She has a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and previously worked as a therapist for a non-profit organization. Diane feels blessed to be surrounded by a supportive family, including her husband Tim and their amazing kids, Tyler ( 20) and Ellie (18). Her favorite days are spent at the bookstore--sometimes working alongside Ellie, sometimes with one of her fantastic employees, and occasionally with her high-maintenance Goldendoodle named Bagel.
