Julie Hoag lives in Minnesota with her husband and three sons. Before becoming a writer, she worked as a scientist at the University of Minnesota, as a pediatric nurse, and as a stay-at-home mom. After her youngest entered school, she revisited her interest in writing by starting a Family, Lifestyle and Food Blog at juliehoagwriter.com. She began submitting non-fiction articles across the internet, finding wonderful success in getting published on numerous websites. Additionally, her YA Contemporary Romance novel Hungry Hearts was just published by Swoon Romance/Month9Books and her second novel is forthcoming later this year. In this episode, Julie and I talk about making the switch from writing nonfiction to fiction, how being a blogger has made her a better novelist, and more.
