So many of us have a Liane Moriarty novel or two on our bookshelves.

We’ve fallen in love with Big Little lies.

Dreamed of having Nicole Kidman and Reece Witherspoon want to throw money at us to gain the rights to one of our creations, and watch it come to life on screen.

Despite all this Liane Moriarty remains humble and softly spoken about her success.

We asked her how she got her start in writing and wanted to know what keeps her motivated throughout the writing process.

And her answer wasn’t what we expected.
