Sarah's Bookshelves Live
In Episode 54, Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks (authors of You Are Not Alone) go behind-the-scenes of their writing process, how they decided to write psychological thrillers, and share where their next novel is set (it’s not in New York City!). This post contains affiliate links, through which I make a small commission when you make a purchase (at no cost to you!). Highlights The themes Sarah & Greer try to base every book around. The Sarah & Greer co-writing team origin story. How Sarah’s and Greer’s personalities are similar and different. The good, the bad, and the ugly about Sarah & Greer’s writing process…and how their process is different from many other co-writing teams. Sarah’s and Greer’s thoughts on whether writing together is more or less efficient than writing alone. How they decided to write psychological thrillers (vs. some other genre). How they work through their plot twists (and keep them from becoming outlandish). How they threw out the original first third of You Are Not Alone. The book they’re working on now. The screenplay for The Wife Between Us that they’re currently working on. A bonus recommendation co-signed by all three of us. Where their next book is set…and it’s not New York City.
