Westside Satellite for Writers – Writing the Historical Romance Novel

Saturday, June 26, 2021

Host Robin Quinn presents author Christina Hoag.

Research is a fundamental part of writing both fiction and nonfiction, yet it is one of the most overlooked yet fascinating aspects of the craft.

Journalist-turned-novelist Christina Hoag will share her experience researching Skin of Tattoos, a crime novel set in the closed world of street gangs, as well as research she had to do to write Girl on the Brink, a novel about abusive relationships inspired by her personal experience. Christina’s message is not to be daunted by writing about the unfamiliar. The key is to write what you’re passionate about.
