Amandine asked S.E. Jakes:

how do you write the suspense's plot? do you follow a plan or you just know where you want to go?

S.E. Jakes Ha! I should make my editors answer this question :) As they will tell you, they can't even answer your spoiler questions because I don't write a synopsis. I don't want to write the book if I know too much about it - I like going in blind with my characters and letting them lead. It's not a process that can work for everyone, but it's the only way I can do it. So basically, I follow the characters, because through them is where I find the plot.
