A New York Times #1 bestselling author, Greer Hendricks, has had an illuminating career in the world of writing. She worked for Simon and Schuster as an assistant editor at Scribner Books, followed by a short time with Pocket Books and Washington Square Press. During her time with those companies, she helped to discover and edit several writers, among them, Sarah Pekkanen. She would eventually co-write a novel with Pekkanen, which would also become a blockbuster hit, The Wife Between Us.
Sarah Pekkanen approached Hendricks about collaborating on a novel, which Hendricks turned down at first, but then changed her mind within 12 hours, and called Pekkanen to accept her offer. They shared such similar narrative style and instincts, they knew they were going to create something special.
Both Greer and Sarah studied journalism and psychology, which made both extremely interested in human nature. They wanted to explore how people can share common experiences, but take away such different perspectives and emotions. As part of their technique, they agreed to create protagonists who are interesting and original, but very relatable. Every word, plot, and character was created by both authors, together. That is a rarity in co-authors. Most alternate chapters or alternate in other forms. Greer lives in Manhattan and Pekkanen lives in D.C. They spent 36 hour periods at a time collaborating on the novel. Technology allowed them to both talk to each other and write the manuscript simultaneously. It took hours of creating, rejecting, and fine-tuning their ideas.
The Wife Between Us has been optioned for film by Amblin Entertainment, with Greer and Sarah adapting the screenplay. Hendricks also wrote An Anonymous Girl.
