“Hope is not this delicate wishy-washy thing. Hope is ferocious. Hope can eclipse the darkest things that we experience.” – Rocky Callen
Rocky Callen, the daughter of an Ecuadorian immigrant, has long lived a life of service ever since she was a 13-year-old when she started to advocate for social rights at congress. She continued her advocacy work for years and received a BA in Communications and Political Science. After college, she was a behavioral coach for over a decade and a writing mentor. She received an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts. A Breath Too Late, a young adult novel about suicide, depression and domestic violence is her debut novel.
