Dr. Julie Schlegel,a pediatrician, lives in Houston. She has a B.A. degree in English from Baylor University and an M.D. from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas. She completed a residency in pediatrics at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston in 2005. She is a wife and mother of three. In the early years of parenthood, the desire to write was smothered by the daily grind of working, raising the children, and trying to stay sane. Now, as the kids have gotten older, the fire to write is burning once more.
