About Kathleen and Liz: Kathleen is the author of the New York Times Bestselling novel Girl in Pieces, How to Make friends with the dark, and You’d Be Home Now. Her books have been published in more than 24 countries.

Liz Lawson is the author of The Lucky Ones, a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2020.

Together, they have a book called The Agathas, a fun, young adult mystery which is a departure from the contemporary realistic fiction that both tend to write.

In this episode, Mike, Kathleen, and Liz discuss: 

  • How Kathleen and Liz met and why they chose to collaborate on young adult mystery
  • Writing with someone else
  • Doing whatever you want
  • Kathleen and Liz’s book, The Agathas

Key Takeaways: 

  • It’s nice to recognize the works of other authors and try to contact them. Meeting them in person allows you to get to know them in a different way, build connections, and eventually collaborate with them.
  • Writing with someone else not only gives you more ideas for the book and improves your relationship, but it also encourages you to share your work, which is a great way to figure out what works and what doesn’t.
  • You are free to do whatever you want with your story. Don’t be afraid to play with your characters; make it exciting! Reality can be boring at times.
  • Nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself and each other, no matter how unlikely your personalities are or how much people underestimate you.

 “If it’s really something you want to do, it’s going to usually take more work than you might expect when you’re starting out.” – Liz Lawson

“You don’t need anyone else’s permission to call yourself a writer… Give yourself space and time to write when you can and don’t let anyone try to stop you.” – Kathleen Glasgow
