[80] Rocky Callen, author of A Breath Too Late

“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.

Transcript for this episode: bit.ly/FBCtranscript80
Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: feminist thrillers, contemporary literary fiction, short stories, and anything that might be described as "irreverent"
