Inspirational Indie Author Interview. Denise Baden: Climate Fiction Author Seeks Optimistic Shade of Green

My ALLi author guest this episode is Denise Baden, who sponsors climate fiction contests, but is continuously in search of green stories of a different color, an optimistic one rather than the usual dystopian visions of the future. Denise has a background in psychology, and she’s convinced that if you show readers an optimistic scenario, they’re more likely to work to make it come true. Those optimistic books are so rare, in fact, that she decided to write one herself.

Inspirational Indie Author Interview. Denise Baden: About the Author

Denise Baden set up the series of free Green Stories writing competitions in 2018 to inspire writers to create positive visions of what a sustainable society might look like, to tell stories that showcase solutions, not just problems. Her book, Habitat Man, began as an effort to illustrate what a solution-based approach might look like, and then took on a life of its own. At her characters’ insistence, she’s now working on the sequel.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast episode and everything Denise said profoundly resonated with me. As a climate writer and educator of sorts myself I believe there is a need for what is emerging to be known as ‘ecofiction’ like never before. I also believe this a growing niche as more and more writers, educators and entertainers find there is in fact a way they can merge their creative skills and passion for sustainability to raise their voice for a higher purpose than just selling their books.
    I would love to connect with Denise and also Howard, because I am strong believer and proponent of creating synergy when it comes to something as important as dealing with our environmental and climate crisis.
