Greer Hendricks Interview for Columbia Fiction Foundry

Apr 13, 2019 | Conversations, Events | 0 comments

On April 6, at the Columbia Alumni Center in New York City, I had the pleasure of interviewing Greer Hendricks, co-author, with Sarah Pekkanen, of THE WIFE BETWEEN US, which spent 26 weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers List, and AN ANONYMOUS GIRL, which debuted at #1 on the NYT list and remained in the top five for over two months.

The novels are slick and suspenseful psychological thrillers, and it was fascinating to talk with Greer about her unique writing process. Unlike most writing duos, who take on alternating chapters or different characters, Greer and Sarah craft every line together on Google Docs or Hangout. They visit each other’s cities to plot, camping out in a hotel room with giant Post-It notes on the wall. How cool to have a magical soul-sister writing partner!

Greer was down-to-earth and fun to interview as she shared her story as well as inside tips on the publishing business, optioning a novel for film and TV, and the importance of sitting down and doing the work.
