Today I’m talking with Liza Palmer about the re-release of her first book, Conversations with the Fat Girl, and her newest novel, The Nobodies. We talk about writing, 4am anxiety, and writing Carol Danvers for the YA novels – and reading the script for the movie early (OMG).
Our conversation and her new book, The Nobodies, is a little bit about being uncomfortable and learning new skills: if you’re doing it right, as you level up it gets harder, not easier.
We talk about failing, and about feeling lost, in terms that might sound like depression or remind you of it, so if that’s something that’s not ideal for you right now, it’s okay to skip ahead to the next episode on your playlist.
The Nobodies is on sale now as of 10 September, so if you’re curious, you can get yourself a copy.
Here are the books we discuss in this podcast:

From New York Times bestselling author Marie Force comes Deceived by Desire, the second in her USA Today bestselling Gilded Series—a glittering tale of star-crossed romance set amid the lavish mansions and decadent lifestyles of early 20th century Newport, Rhode Island.
Wealthy American industrialist Aubrey Nelson has invited the Duke and Duchess of Westbrook to visit his family’s Newport seaside “cottage” for the summer. With his parents’ departure from New York delayed, Aubrey’s mother sends him ahead to oversee preparations for their guests. But when he arrives, he’s surprised to find the house and staff in disarray.
With much to do and little time, Aubrey comes to rely on the housekeeper, a lovely young Irish woman named Maeve Brown. And when he also finds himself confiding in Maeve about more personal matters, he tells himself it’s merely their close proximity that draws him to the compassionate, hard-working beauty. Yet when he suspects Maeve is in danger, Aubrey realizes his feelings for her have grown much deeper than they should have. For what will his mother, who dreams of a society match for her son, have to say when she arrives to discover he’s lost his heart to a girl of the working class?
With Marie Force’s knack for creating unforgettable characters, this romantic upstairs-downstairs romance will appeal to readers of Lisa Kleypas, Eloisa James, and Sabrina Jeffries. Deceived by Desire by Marie Force is on sale wherever books are sold. For more information visit Marie Force.com.
