We go behind the book with New York and Sunday Times Bestselling author, Gilly Macmillan. Her latest novel, To Tell You The Truth, is narrated by crime writer, Lucy. Her main character, Eliza, has leapt from the pages and has started to tell her how to behave. Lucy tries to kill her off but her agent and publisher won’t let her. Meanwhile, Lucy’s childhood is catching up with her. Gilly lifts the lid on the publishing industry in this novel.

We’ll ask Gilly about writing about writing, how close this book is to the ‘truth’ of a writer’s life, what it’s really like to write a novel a year, unreliable narrators and having fun with plot.

Gilly Macmillan is the New York Times & Sunday Times bestselling author of TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, THE NANNY, WHAT SHE KNEW (previously published as BURNT PAPER SKY in some territories), THE PERFECT GIRL, ODD CHILD OUT & I KNOW YOU KNOW.
