Tell the truth. Or face the consequences.

Clue meets Riverdale in this page-turning thriller that exposes the lies five teens tell about a deadly night one year ago. 

One year ago, there was a party.
At the party, someone died.
Five teens each played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth.

But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late.

Now, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge, a person who will stop at nothing to uncover what actually happened on that deadly night, one year ago.

Five arrived, but not all can leave. Will the truth set them free?
Or will their lies destroy them all? 

Hi Chelsea!!  We’re so excited to have your book in our FFBC Tours, and can’t wait to ask you a couple of questions about THIS LIE WILL KILL YOU!


Favorite Book?

The Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and The Diviners are at the top of my list!

Favorite TV show?

Pushing Daisies and Veronica Mars

Favorite movie?

Mean Girls 

Favorite Song?

Is There Somewhere by Halsey

Favorite Food?

Thai yellow curry with tofu

Name 3 fictional places you would move to in a heartbeat. 

Eretz, Camelot, and Holly Black’s version of Faerie

What were your favorite books during your elementary/junior high years?

I loved the Bunnicula series as a kid, the Chronicles of Prydain as an adolescent, and any 
Francesca Lia Block books I could get my hands on as a teenager.

 Favorite Quote?

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

What are your fandoms?

Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Veronica Mars, His Dark Materials, Morgan le Fay, Hanson and anything faerie related!

What recent book would you recommend to our YA fans?

I had the chance to read an early version of AdriAnne Strickland’s Beyond the Black Door, a
deliciously dark YA fantasy with an ace narrator. The book is absolutely fantastic and comes out in 2019.


Could you tell our Book Addicts a little bit about THIS LIE WILL KILL YOU?

On the surface, THIS LIE WILL KILL YOU is about a murder mystery dinner that turns ugly. Five teens attend the party, only to find that someone is already there watching them. Someone has been watching them for a very long time. And that person will stop at nothing to uncover what happened one year ago, when a classmate died in a tragic accident.

An accident that might’ve been premeditated. 

Under the surface, though, the book might be about something else. It might be a guidebook to exposing predators. It might even be an instruction manual on how to burn the patriarchy to the ground. 

Let’s leave it up to the audience to decide.

What 3 hashtags would you most associate with your book? (Could be a word or phrase or anything that would instantly make you think of THIS LIE WILL KILL YOU.)

#TrustNoOne #TellTheTruthOrFaceTheConsequences #BurnItDown

Do you have any favorite mystery/thriller books/movies/tv shows?

Oh, tons! I grew up reading Christopher Pike books and watching movies like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. More recently, I loved reading We Were Liars and admit to 
watching all seven seasons of Pretty Little Liars. (I had a killer Toby theory that would’ve lined up with everything.)

Can you tell us anything about our 5 suspects?

Juniper Torres is whip smart and would do anything for the people she loves. Anything.

Ruby Valentine has a flair for the dramatic, and she loves putting on a show for anyone who will watch her: friends, lovers… and mortal enemies.

Parker Addison is planning to win back the love of his life, and if anyone tries to stop him, well… good thing he brought a rope to the party.

Brett Carmichael is a fighter, always has been. Always will be. Of course, always isn’t as long as you might think, in a house with five liars and a killer.

Gavin Moon is the keeper of everyone’s secrets. It’s easy, when you’re looking in from the outside. But tonight, Gavin’s stepping into the party, and into a massive web of lies. Can he expose the truth… before someone tries to silence him?

Tell us your favorite quote from THIS LIE WILL KILL YOU.

“Each of them had a secret. Each of them was wearing a mask. And one by one, those masks would fall away.”

If you had to pick one song to be the Theme Song for THIS LIE WILL KILL– Which one would you pick?

AJR: Burn the House Down

Are there any recommendations you could give your readers to be in the “perfect mood” to read THIS LIE WILL KILL YOU (specific music, snacks…)? 

The book comes out in December, which is perfect, because the murder mystery dinner takes place on December 21st. So make some hot chocolate, settle in by the fire… and prepare to start glancing behind your back every few minutes!

What’s next for you? 

A YA mystery with witches (the real and fairy tale kind!) 

Thanks so much for chatting with us!!

Thank you for having me!! I’m thrilled to be featured on your fabulous site!

  • I don't even know where to start on this interview!!  First, I am SO excited about this book-- I love YA Mystery/Thrillers and I haven't read/watched a murder dinner party book/movie in a long time!!  Sounds fun!
  • My answer to fave movie would also be Mean Girls (and Clueless).  And YES to Bunnicula!!  I loved the original as a kid and I've read that one and a few of the sequels to my son & he enjoys them too!  I would love to hear your Toby theory.  I went through a whole Toby-induced rage-depression for a while during that show.  It was definitely a roller-coaster ride.  Last but not least-- I can't wait to see what the YA Mystery w/ witches is like!!

  1. This book sounds amazing and is on my TBR. I love to read mysteries and thrillers.

  2. I love that she would move to some version of Faerie! I feel like it would be a lovely place, but I would also fear for my life as a human. I would need a faerie protector, or some mystical power. ;)

    I've seen this book around, but this is the first time I've actually read the blurb for it. It's intriguing! Thanks for sharing! And the interview was lovely.

  3. I am so on this ya murder mystery bandwagon!!
