Novelist Laura Moriarty is the author of the acclaimed book group favorite, The Center of Everything, as well as the two subsequent novels, The Rest of Her Life and While I'm Falling. Though the characters in all three books are very different, all explore complex issues of mothers and daughters, the importance of family, and the consequences of inattentiveness. Moriarty, who grew up in a military family and had lived in numerous places around the world, talks about her love of the open terrain and people of Kansas, the place she's adopted as home for her and the characters in her three novels.
