“This book holds together the power women find when they are honest and courageous and truthful. Some of these stories moved me to tears, others made me believe in humanity again, many I could identify with. This book brought me tremendous joy, insight and brought me back to believe in the human spirit.” –Julianna Margulies, multiple award-winning actor and author of “Sunshine Girl: An Unexpected Life”
What does it mean to be fabulous? In this enthralling collection of essays, women from all walks of life explore what it takes to find their own true north, sharing personal stories of successes, mishaps, and often-hilarious surprises along the way.
Featuring tenacious mountain climbers, reluctant city drivers, unlikely CIA spies, courageous journalists, and heart-driven animal activists, “Dare to be Fabulous” invites readers on an inspiring journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance.

From the Introduction: “Stories in this book were selected from nearly 50 stories previously featured on DaretobeFabulous.com, a website I’ve hosted and edited since 2010. I selected this collection based on the range of topics and themes they convey … I’m sincere when I say, ‘You’ll laugh! You’ll cry!’ when reading this collection. Mostly, you’ll nod with understanding and hold a continual smile on your face. What’s not to like about that?” –Johanna McCloy, Editor
