Nancy and I discuss her debut novel The Kindest Lie, the issue of identity in the United States today, her title’s dual meaning, how important it is for aspiring authors to write the story they want to write versus following publishing trends, her own publishing journey, and much more.
The Kindest Lie can be purchased at Murder by the Book.
Nancy’s 3 recommended reads are:
