Emily Barrosse is founder and CEO of Bold Story Press, a publishing house for women authors who want to share their stories with the world.

Emily spent the first 32 years of her career in the publishing industry. As Vice President and Editor in Chief at McGraw-Hill, she transformed the sluggish culture into a competitive, hungry, growth-driven business. Fueled by explosive creativity, her division quadrupled signings of new books with innovative content for the future.

Emily believes that women are uniquely qualified to empower each other through sharing the stories of their experience. She knows the world will be a better place when we achieve better balance in our culture by increasing the numbers of women’s voices.
