Welcome to another week of the SheHeroes Chatcast! In this 6-part series of conversations with accomplished SheHeroes in entertainment, publishing, film, sports and more we will chat about what inspires these amazing women to pave the way for the future of girls. We can't wait to talk to women from all over who inspire!
This week are talking to author and all around SheHero, Anna Caltabiano!
Anna Caltabiano is an up-and-coming young adult author, who though only recently turned 18, has already published two widely acclaimed novels. Her most recent novel, The Seventh Miss Hatfield, is the first book of a new trilogy, published by the Hatchette Group. Caltabiano has received an increasing amount of media attention for her compelling stories to which young adults can deeply relate. The idea of writing her first book was born as a result of a bet she made with her dad to avoid having to go to camp the summer after middle school. Four years later and Caltabiano is still writing. In her books, articles, and media appearances, she continues to tackle everyday, but often painful, issues for teens.
"Cynthia, an 11-year-old American, isn't entirely happy with her life, comfortable though it is. Still, even she knows that she shouldn't talk to strangers. So when her mysterious neighbour Miss Hatfield asked her in for a chat and a drink, Cynthia wasn't entirely sure why she said yes. It was a decision that was to change everything. For Miss Hatfield is immortal..." ~ from The Seventh Mrs. Hatfield
