275: Exploring Family Relationships – Interview with Kristan Higgins

Hey there word nerds!

Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Kristan Higgins.

Kristan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of nearly twenty novels, which have been translated into more than two dozen languages and have sold millions of copies worldwide. Her books have received many awards and accolades, and she is a six-time nominee for The Kirkus Prize for best work of fiction. Today we’ll be discussing her new novel Life and Other Inconveniences.

In this episode Kristan and I discuss:

  • Exploring forgiveness, loss and complicated families in writing
  • Balancing dual protagonists
  • Using a compressed timeline
  • How to handle heavy topics in a lighter book
  • The power of asking, “Why?” for character development

Plus, her #1 tip for writers.
