TENAFLY, N.J. — Three borough residents are sharing pieces of their writing in a collection of short stories from 14 female business owners called “Redefining Success: Real Women, Real Stories, Real Inspiration.”

Due out on Oct. 1, the book is the brainchild of Closter resident Ayelet Nathaniel, whose children's book "Sparkly Me" made her the best-selling author on Amazon for 16 straight weeks.

“The idea of the book is to inspire and support women,” said Nathaniel, an Israeli immigrant and mother of three. “It’s to make them feel like they’re not alone in this world and they can go on and do whatever they want.”

The three borough residents are fashion guru Gretchen Lolis, along with Melanie Catanzaro, the founder and president of MDC Event Group, and magazine and skincare line founder Sarah Walton.

The New Jersey, New York, California and Connecticut women all share personal stories of “personal triumph, moments of grief, support, growth and ultimately, success,” Nathaniel says on her website.

“Owning a business is very difficult and many women feel very isolated,” she said. “At some point they decided not to pursue their dream because it’s just so hard.

“Each one of us comes from different backgrounds and experience difficulties but this book shows that it doesn’t matter where you come from.”
