E. Lockhart Q&A

e lockhart q&a - theheartofabookbloggerMy sixth Author Q&A features E. Lochart, author of We Were Liars, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, and The Ruby Oliver Quartet.

  • Jordan: Which one of the Liars are you most like?
  • E. Lockhart: I am most like Cadence in We Were Liars — but there is a little of me in all 4. Johnny is my favorite.
  • J: Who are your favorite minor characters to write?
  • EL: Johnny in We Were Liars. Alpha in Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks.
  • J: Which character do you love to hate?
  • EL: I love to hate Venom — Spider-man’s nemesis, created from Spidey’s own black suit. Love me some Venom.
  • J: Which book was the hardest to write?
  • EL: We Were Liars was the hardest to write. Except this new one. It is killing me.
  • J: So what’s next?
  • EL: The new book — I’m rewriting it now. It has a little bit of murder.
  • J: What was the greatest piece of writing advice you’ve ever received?
  • EL: Do not be afraid to write something stupid. Just write. Banish the fear.
  • J: What do you do when you have writer’s block?
  • EL: I force myself. I set a goal (maybe 500 words) and I write stupid, banal stuff. I’ll fix it later.

Thank you for answering my questions during the twitter chat, Emily. Be sure to check out We Were Liars.
