Author JOELLE SPERANZAJoelle Speranza is a lifestyle publicist, writer, and author, with a passion for empowering girls of all ages and life stages. Her children’s book, Princess Genevieve: The Hero with Girl Power, is coming in 2020. Her first book, Trash the Dress: Stories of Celebrating Divorce in your 20s, has been featured in Huffington Post, Glamour UK, Yahoo! Health, Cosmo Middle East, SheKnows, International Business Times, The Globe and Mail, and more. It was inspired by her life and features interviews with 70 divorced young women worldwide. Today, Joelle is married to Frank and cherishes being mommy to their daughter, Genevieve, and son, Luca. She enjoys working from their little red cottage in New Jersey. Genevieve and Luca always knock on the door of Joelle’s office asking for hugs and she gives in every time. Gracey and Lulu, the family’s two rescued shelter dogs, complete the #speranzasquad. Joelle first began writing stories on a typewriter when she was a child and since becoming a mom, has dreamed of publishing a children’s book. She was inspired to write Princess Genevieve as she planned her daughter’s princess-themed 5th birthday party because every princess needs her own story. Joelle decided to publish Princess Genevieve to help empower all young girls. A goal-getter, Joelle has been self-publishing and producing since college, when she launched her own music ‘zine-turned-website and Internet TV show before it was cool for everyone to have one. She views everything in life as a potential article, photo, or TV segment is always thinking of a way to create and spread positivity. Learn more and connect at www.joellesperanza.com.
