So...We Were Liars was a great read. I really like the fact that it leaves you feeling all these emotions and leaves you utterly breathless. I read the ruby Oliver novels years ago and I have to say that Liars is pretty different from it. What made you decide to shift perspectives and write a novel that's not "light"? And how was the writing process like?
It wasn't a deliberate choice, it was just the story idea that came to me. We Were Liars is the same as my other books in that it's about ambition and social class, and it has funny bits and first love and heartbreak. But you are right that it is different. It is essentially a suspense novel, and I had never done that before. It was hugely difficult to write.
