I'm glad you enjoyed the advance copy. To answer your question, I like writing characters who are at a crossroads in their lives. Characters who may have spent years hiding their personas behind a cloak of invincibility only to find themselves suddenly vulnerable. Characters who are facing a crisis and are forced to question their life choices. Then I apply an outside threat to help expose a hidden wrong or uncover a buried secret and see how my characters react. (less)

I have no idea where to begin. Picture books? Charlotte’s Web? Stuart Little? Every Nancy Drew mystery ever written? My Victoria Holt phase? Or when I got snobby and only read the classics and somehow learned to love Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Bronte and Wharton? My passion for short stories by Flannery O’Connor, Katherine Anne Porter, Tillie Olsen and Ellen Gilchrist? My love for William Styron’s novels, especially Sophie’s Choice. How about Cormac McCarthy’s The Road which I’ve read multiple times? But I suppose when it comes to suspense there are two authors that top my list: Patricia Highsmith and Daphne du Maurier. Patricia Highsmith was so talented she wrote a short story about a killer snail that spooked me for days. And Daphne du Maurier’s short story, The Birds, runs rings around Hitchcock’s film adaptation. I could go on and on but if I do I’ll never get back to my latest read.

Summer Reading Highlights

I planned to write and post this article prior to summer turning to fall but was bogged down in the final edits of my latest thriller and couldn’t spare the time. So now that the leaves are turning and the air has chilled, I have a few moments to spare. Here is the list of my five favorite reads from Summer 2021.

The Beekeeper of Aleppo. Christy Lefteri. I finished this novel shortly before the US
