Celebrate Life 

If you or someone you love is facing the need to mark a life and craft a legacy, we can help. 

At Lioness, we specialize in ghostwriting memoirs and end-of-life celebrations. We help you craft your life narrative and mark your impact on the world. 

Through a sensitive and intense process of interviewing, collecting materials, and writing, we can help you write the story of your life as you want it to be, the story that you will leave behind in this world. 

Dr. Elana Sztokman is certified in Spiritual and Pastoral Care from the Blaustein Center of Hebrew Union College. She also holds a doctorate in anthropology from Hebrew University with specialized training in interviewing and crafting biographical narratives. 

Reach out to Elana directly to schedule a conversation and see how Lioness can help you with this vital work of Celebrating Life.

Genendy Radoff, author of The Price of Truth: A true story of child sexual abuse in the Orthodox Jewish world -- and one girl's courage to survive and heal (Lioness Books, 2019)

Elana Sztokman edited and published my memoir, The Price of Truth and it was an all around wonderful experience!  Elana is honest, professional, generous, and culturally sensitive.  She made it a priority that my authentic voice be heard in the way that I needed it to be.  She made it clear that she believed in me as a person and a writer and she supported me in marketing and publicity. I am so grateful!!

The Story of Lioness Books

Amplifying women's voices. Helping women find their power.

My name is Dr. Elana Sztokman, founder of Lioness Books and Media.

I started Lioness for women like you and me, women doing passionate work in the world whose voices need to ring loudly. Women from all backgrounds and cultures (including non-conforming/non-binary/trans), each one with her own unique journey and vision for the world. 

In the course of my 25-year career as a feminist writer, researcher, and activist, I have had the privilege of meeting so many Lionesses, inspiring women who dedicate their lives to vital issues in the world. I have met women tackling topics such as sexual abuse, disabilities, the environment, peace, LGBTQ, sex trafficking, domestic violence, education, sexuality, and more. Lionesses. 

Lioness Books and Media aims to amplify the voices of amazing women like you. I want to hold up the megaphone so you can get your ideas out into the world with passion and power. 

Lioness is about more than books. It's about using your book as a platform to take your place as an author-expert in the world.
