No Apologies

by Sharni Layton

Before Sharni Layton became an All-Australian AFLW star, she was a gun netballer. By 2017, she had been named ANZ Championship Player of the Year, was captain of the Diamonds and had won Commonwealth Games Gold along with two World Cups for Australia. On the outside it looked as if she was living the dream. On the inside, it was different. Her confidence was shot and a career’s worth of suppressed anxiety finally boiled over, leading to full-blown burnout.

No Apologies is a candid, inspiring and hilarious account of how one woman bounced back from rock bottom – and gave herself permission to fly.

About the Author

Sharni Layton’s professional netball career spanned fourteen years, including two World Cups with the Australian Diamonds, a Commonwealth Games gold medal and recognition as Australian ANZ Championship Player of the Year in 2016.

In 2018, poor mental health forced Sharni to take a six-month break from sport. In 2019, she switched codes to join the AFLW’s Collingwood Magpies, where she made the league’s All Australian team. Sharni now coaches netball and uses her platform to advocate for mental health. No Apologies is her first book.
