Liz Nugent, who was named Irish Woman of the Year in Literature in 2017, chats to Wellington writer Kirsten McDougall about turning to psychological thrillers after a career in Irish radio and television, and the art of getting inside the heads of monstrous characters.

Liz has published three novels - UNRAVELLING OLIVER, LYING IN WAIT, and SKIN DEEP - which have all been #1 bestsellers and have collectively won four Irish Book Awards. LYING IN WAIT was voted Readers' Choice for the famed Richard and Judy Book Club.

In 2018, Kirsten's second book TESS was a finalist for the Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Novel and longlisted for the Acorn Prize for Fiction at the Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.
