Literary Birthday – 8 April – Sara Shepard


Happy Birthday, Sara Shepard, born 8 April 1977

Quotes

  1. I really like the spooky twists and the intense mystery. I think the various plot devices work really well for TV, but they are still also in the spirit of Pretty Little Liars as a whole.
  2. Whatever baggage you have, use it. Conquer it. Don’t let it stop you.
  3. I’m not sure that I have a favourite either on-screen or in the books! Whenever I’m writing, I’m always really excited to dive back into each character.
  4. I do a lot of brainstorming with my editors. Sometimes it just comes out in the writing. I’ll get an idea as I’m writing the chapter. I try to go for maximum surprises in PLL, stuff you don’t see coming. It’s a lot of fun!
  5. I love books about dysfunctional families.
  6. For me, writing for younger audiences and writing for adults uses two different halves of my brain.
  7. If a little voice in your head is telling you something is up, maybe you should listen.

Sara Shepard is an American author. She is known for the bestselling Pretty Little Liars and The Lying Game book series, both of which have been turned into television shows.
