Remembering your "why" with writing memoir and publishing with Julie Gorges

The TufFish Show is for writers who want to get their first, next or current book out into the world, and this week we welcomed the talented award winning author Julie Gorges!

Julie shared so much wisdom about remembering your "why" when you face imposter syndrome, rejection letters and navigate your publishing path. We also talked in depth about her memoir and how that book took shape.

Our guest is Julie A. Gorges, an award-winning author of five books available on Amazon, a blogger at, and a freelance writer with hundreds of articles and short stories published in national and regional magazines. In addition, she won three journalism awards as a newspaper reporter.

Julie’s latest book, Ten Secrets to Losing Weight After 50, received a five-star review from Reader’s Favorite and her book, I’m Your Daughter, Julie: Caring for a Parent with Dementia, based on her caregiving experiences for her mother who had Lew Body dementia, won grand prize from Royal Dragonfly.
