Author Kathleen Barber

Kathleen’s novel grew out of her fascination with the true-crime podcast Serial which she juxtaposed with a NaNoWiMo storyline involving characters she’d been writing about since high school.

The result was a hugely successful debut which sold at auction, went on to be optioned by Reese Witherspoon, and is the basis for Apple TV’s upcoming Fall 2019 streaming series Truth Be Told, starring Octavia Spencer, Lizzy Caplan, and Aaron Paul.
