Episode 031 - Caroline Paul
The advice often given to budding writers is that they should write about what they know. In Caroline Paul’s case, that would fill a bookcase and every volume would be well worth reading! She was the 15th woman to break into the male-dominated world of the San Francisco Fire Department where she served for 13 1/2 years. She has dodged death while paragliding in Brazil, she’s climbed Mount Denali, white water rafted in one of the remotest parts of Siberia and sea kayaked around the islands of Croatia. Caroline has chased world records, Olympic medals and has broken onto the NY Times bestseller list with her most recent book - ‘The Gutsy Girl’.
