Episode details

Sympathy for the devil (and understanding a bit of that devil in yourself). Author Randy Susan Meyers helps us understand our antagonist’s deeper worlds, making them more believable, interesting, and worth spending time with.

Find Randy’s most recent book and more of my favorites on the 7am Novelist Bookshop page.

The drama of Randy Susan Meyers' internationally bestselling novels, including Accidents of Marriage, The Widow of Wallstreet, and The Comfort of Lies, is informed by over twenty years of working with families impacted by emotional and physical violence. The Massachusetts Center of the Book chose three of her novels as "Must Read Books" and as finalists for the Massachusetts Book Award. The Murderer's Daughters, Meyers' debut novel, was chosen as One Book, One Community Read by the Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Boston. Meyers lives in Boston with her husband. She teaches at Boston's GrubStreet and Writer in Progress in Northampton, MA.
