A MacDowell Colony Fellow and Pushcart Prize Editor’s Choice honoree, she is the author of the highly acclaimed narrative nonfiction book, “The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight for the Vote” (Viking, 2018), hailed as a “riveting, nail-biting political thriller” with powerful parallels to today’s political environment.

Weiss is also the author of “Fruits of Victory: The Woman’s Land Army in the Great War,” the inspiring story of a long-forgotten women’s movement. She lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
