Sydneysider, mother-oftwo and former marketing executive Liane Moriarty is one of Australia’s best-selling novelists, having sold more than six million books worldwide in 39 languages. Her last opus, Big Little Lies, is currently being made into a TV series with a cast including Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon. “I’m thrilled with how it’s going,” says Liane. “I visited the set and was lucky enough to be there when they were filming one of the key scenes in the book. It was very surreal for me. My involvement has been as a very interested observer on the sidelines. I had no desire to write the adaptation myself, and I was so happy when the renowned David E. Kelley [of Ally McBeal fame] signed up for the job.” Liane says, “Making up stories is my dream job,” and she is already working on her next one.
