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.
