'Big Little Lies' Author 'Absolutely Open to the Possibility' of a Season 2
On her Twitter page, she says:
"Thank you so much to everyone for your lovely Facebook messages about a Season 2 of the incredible HBO adaptation of Big Little Lies.
I'm absolutely open to the possibility and I'm thinking about ideas and potential storylines.
Of course, I don't know if those ideas will work or not and I don't know if all the talented people who would need to say yes WILL say yes.
All I'm saying is that it's a wonderful possibility!
I woke up this morning to the news that I'd apparently confirmed season two was ON. (Such extraordinary powers I possess!)
I thought I should clarify before you come after me with pitchforks if it doesn't work out.
PS. And yes, I know some of you think there should NOT be a season two. I understand that too. Maybe you're right? I don't know. I'm highly suggestible."
She also told The Sydney Morning Herald, "I have started to think about ways this could continue. The producers have asked me to see if I can come up with some ideas. I wouldn't write a new book but perhaps a new story and then we'll see what happens."
The series, which had its finale on April 2, starred Witherspoon, Kravitz, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley. Jean-Marc Vallée directed the episodes. Witherspoon, Kidman, Vallée, David E. Kelley, Gregg Fienberg, Bruna Papandrea, Nathan Ross, and Per Saari were executive producers.
Liane was born in 1966 in Sydney. Her father 'commissioned' her to write a novel for him and paid her an advance of $1.00. She wrote a three volume epic called, 'The Mystery of Dead Man's Island'
After leaving school, Liane began a career in advertising and marketing. She became quite corporate for a while and wore suits and worried a lot about the size of her office. She eventually left her position as marketing manager of a legal publishing company to run her own (not especially successful) business called The Little Ad Agency. After that she worked as (a more successful, thankfully) freelance advertising copywriter, writing everything from websites and TV commercials to the back of the Sultana Bran box.
She also wrote short stories and many first chapters of novels that didn't go any further. The problem was that she didn't actually believe that real people had novels published. Then one day she found out that they did, when her younger sister Jaclyn Moriarty called to say that her (brilliant, hilarious, award-winning) novel, Feeling Sorry for Celia was about to be published.
In a fever of sibling rivalry, Liane rushed to the computer and wrote a children's book called The Animal Olympics, which went on to be enthusiastically rejected by every publisher in Australia.
