Debut Author Podcast: Janis Robinson Daly

Inspired by learning an ancestor was a founder of the Woman’s Medical College of PA, Janis Robinson Daly felt the stories of the college’s graduates needed to be told. With a love of history, she dove into research and began writing, balancing authenticity and details with a flair to create emotional connections to fictional characters.

While her family has roots in Philadelphia, she is a Boston girl through and through, from her accent to the New England Patriots flag hanging from her house. She graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Wheaton College MA, at the time, an all-women’s college. At Wheaton, she developed a fond appreciation of supportive female relationships and a heightened awareness of female-centric issues. Both directed her writing of The Unlocked Path.

Splitting her time between Cape Cod, New Hampshire, and Florida, a tablet becomes her Kindle library and writing desk, packed into a travel bag for reading and writing wherever she might land. More adventures beckon her to document other women in history whose stories need to be discovered.
