Writing About Remarkable Women with best-selling author Elise Hooper Sweet but Fearless Podcast

    • Careers

In this episode, we talk with Elise Hooper, best-selling author of historical fiction novels based on the lives of real women who have been frequently overlooked in history books: May Alcott, Dorothea Lange, Betty Robinson, Helen Stephens, Louise Stokes, and the Angels of Bataan. Telling the stories of these remarkable women help us better understand the past and draw important connections to our own times.

Whether you're an author or front-line leader (or both!), we all need to focus on our work/life priorities, self-care time, and the importance of building your work community. Be inspired as you listen to the stories of the fearless women Elise writes about, and take away how you can be the author of your story.

A native New Englander, Elise spent several years writing for television and online news outlets before getting a MA and teaching high-school literature and history. She now lives in Seattle with her husband and two daughters.
