Club Book Episode 153 Ali Hazelwood
Ali Hazelwood holds a doctorate in neuroscience and a faculty position at a prestigious university. She also moonlights as one of the most popular romance authors writing today. Hazelwood’s distinctive brand centers on women in STEM fields and academia. She burst onto the literary scene in 2021 with The Love Hypothesis. Fellow romance writer Christina Lauren calls Hazelwood’s debut “contemporary romance’s unicorn – the elusive marriage of deeply brainy and delightfully escapist.” The Love Hypothesis has already been optioned for a screen treatment. Hazelwood’s next release, Love on the Brain (2022), became an instant New York Times bestseller, Indie Next Pick, and #1 LibraryReads selection. In a starred review, Booklist praised: “Snappy dialogue with witty zingers makes this tender enemies-to-lovers story, set at NASA, an unforgettable follow-up.” Hazelwood’s latest book, Loathe to Love You, collects three ‘STEMinist’ novellas released separately in 2022: Under One Roof, Stuck with You, and Below Zero.
