Interview with

Bonnie Lieberman

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

How long does it take you to write a book?

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

One of the most surprising things I learned in creating my books is that I am able to arouse the reader's emotions by making my characters relatable.

Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

Does writing energize or exhaust you?

What is your writing Kryptonite?

Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

What authors did you dislike at first but grew into?

At what point do you think someone should call themselves a writer?

What do the words “writer’s block” mean to you? 

Are there therapeutic benefits to modeling a character after someone you know?

What comes first for you — the plot or the characters — and why?

How would you describe your book’s ideal reader?

My book's ideal readers are parents or grandparents seeking to create a bond with young children as they identify and empathize with imperfect characters struggling to find a sense of self and belonging in their expanding world.

How much research did you need to do for your book? 

I do not have to do any research to create books because my writing comes from my own observations and imagination.
