Today, I'm honored to have two very awesome authors here to answer some questions about their debut novel - The Liar Society (which I adored - click to see my review). So prepare for the amazingness that is Lisa and Laura Roecker:
Quick! Describe The Liar Society in 7 words or less!
Dead BFF emails, Kate searches for truth.
Awesome answer! I was stunned by how seamlessly you two wrote The Liar Society. What was the experience like writing together, and how did you two share the work?
Woohoo! Seamless is such a fantastic word. The best word to describe the experience of writing together is FUN. Basically, we play hot potato with the manuscript. Lisa writes the first chapter, Laura edits her work and adds another chapter, Lisa edits her work and writes the next. We continue on until we have a finished book. It's fun because we get to be both readers and writers at the same time and you never know quite where a book will take us.
What inspired you both to write The Liar Society?
Lisa lost someone close to her and used to send him emails. In The Liar Society, Kate has lost her best friend Grace and sends her emails. The only difference is, Grace writes back.
Who are your top favorite sleuths from books/movies/tv shows?
Nancy Drew all the way. We grew up devouring Nancy Drew books. We've heard Veronica Mars is amazing, but sadly never watched. One day, we'll have a marathon.
There's a mystery you two need to solve -- What three things would you need and who would you want to help you solve it?
Lisa's phone (Laura's is basically the equivalent of a Jitterbug), one of our laptops and a car. Kate has to ride a bike everywhere and that kind of sucks. We'd definitely want Seth as our sidekick. He has all sorts of random information in his brain that would come in very handy. Although, not sure he'd be interested in hanging out with a bunch of thirty-somethings! Creeper!
Lol! Is there anything else you'd like to add?
We hope everyone enjoys The Liar Society--we had so much fun writing it!
