Lisa Gardner – New York Times bestseller discusses the perils of being a panster

Lisa Gardner is a prolific author. She’s published 11 ‘DD Warren’ novels, 2 ‘Tessa Leoni’ books, and is back with her first standalone in 20 years. ‘Before She Disappeared’ tells the story of Frankie Elkin who spends her life doing what no one else will, searching for missing people the world has forgotten about.

We talking about why she likes to get things done in the morning, and how she figured out how she works best. Also, how the characters figure themselves out in her down time which drives the story, although it seems to change between books. We talk about being a pantser, who likes to plot at the start, and why she hates the actual words on the page.
