Goodreads asked Stephen Goldenberg:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Stephen Goldenberg My novel 'The Lying Game' came about because I wanted to write something based on my experiences in my final teaching job before I was forced into early retirement.
I felt my experiences were symptomatic of so much that has been going on in society in general in recent years i.e. an atmosphere of bullying and harassment in which it becomes impossible to trust anything that people in authority say to you.
In the end, the novel is not about my own experiences at all but it creates the kind of atmosphere and the moral dilemmas that I and other people around me experienced.
