NOV2018_KILLER-SUSPENSE

Killer Suspense

with
Simon Wood

You’re reading. Your heart is slamming against your rib cage, your fingertips are moist, and you turn another page. If you’ve ever felt this way reading a book, then the writer has done a great job at creating suspense. This doesn’t happen by accident. Simon outlines the key differences between suspense and mystery and discusses the techniques for building suspense and creating thrills.

USA Today bestselling author Simon Wood is a California transplant from England. He's a former competitive race car driver, a licensed pilot, an endurance cyclist, an animal rescuer, and an occasional PI. He shares his world with his American wife, Julie. Their lives are dominated by a long-haired dachshund and six cats. He's the Anthony Award winning author of The One That Got Away, Accidents Waiting to Happen, Paying the Piper, Terminated, Deceptive Practices, and the Aidy Westlake series. His latest book is Saving Grace. He also writes horror under the pen name of Simon Janus. Curious people can learn more at SimonWood.net.
