Hoganís first book Men: A Userís Guide was released in 2003.

Her next book, completed mid-2004, was a collaborative autobiography of one of Australia's most loved personalities. Her latest book is The Veiled Lands: A Womanís Journey to the Heart of the Islamic World, a non-fiction book based on her research during three years in the Middle East and North Africa, and it will be published at the end of June. She is also researching her next book on the role of women in Australian television during its first 50 years.
Hogan is currently editing TeenMatters, a magazine launched in spring 2004 and designed for the parents of teenagers by Father Chris Riley and his organization Youth Off the Streets.
