Guest Post: Jennifer Sturman (And Then Everything Unraveled)

Today I'm featuring Jennifer Sturman, author of And Then Everything Unraveled + the sequel, And Then I Found Out The Truth. Thank you to her and Tooraj from TK Public Relations for putting this all together. I really loved these two books, if you missed my reviews, check them out here.

Jennifer Sturman is the author of several mystery novels, including The Pact and The Jinx. After graduating from Harvard College, Jennifer earned her MBA from Harvard Business School. She now lives in New York City, a few blocks from Delia’s aunt Charley. She has no free time, but if she did she would probably spend it watching teen movie classics from the '80s. She's currently at work on her next novel.

Guest Post:

1) Tell us a little about your female protagonist, Delia Truesdale. Was it difficult writing her emotions when she learned her mother was missing?

JS: Writing Delia’s emotions about anything is pretty challenging, because there are usually several layers involved – a lot of the time she refuses to acknowledge what she’s really feeling because if she did she’d totally lose it! And because I’m writing in the first person, there’s no all-seeing narrator to let us know that what Delia actually says is only part of the story. Instead, I have to figure out other ways to show that there’s more going on inside than Delia’s explicitly telling us. Sometimes she makes an offhand or oblique comment – like in Chapter Two of Unraveled, where she mentions the “thick feeling” in her throat. She can’t admit to crying or even wanting to cry, but we all know the warning signs. How other characters behave toward her can also provide clues – the expectations and reactions of the people around her act as a sort of mirror.

2) Was there a time in your life where you had to pick up everything you knew and move to a different place?

JS: Only in the normal, boring ways and only by choice, like going off to college – which is why I write fiction rather than memoirs! Delia’s definitely had a more interesting time of it, though she’s also had to deal with a lot. My own road has been much smoother, but it tends to be the bumps in the road that make for an interesting story.

3) What can your readers expect from the sequel, And Then I Found Out The Truth? Will there be a third book in the series?

JS: Unraveled ends with a bit of a cliff-hanger – part of the mystery is solved, but there are still more questions to answer before the evil-doers can be vanquished and everyone else can live happily ever after. That’s what Truth is about – getting to the ultimate bottom of things once and for all.

As for a third book – none is currently planned, but characters occasionally have a way of surprising you….
