“The Breakfast Club with murder” is how Karen McManus, MA’04, describes her first novel, “One of Us is Lying.” Now with four books published and more on the way, this New York Times Bestselling author has made writing her full-time career. Karen started in PR and Marketing, but realized it was never too late to make a switch. In this episode she shares how a familiar ’80s song inspired her writing and gives updates on the forthcoming TV adaptation of her first book.
