Girls With Pens:
You have created a name for yourself as a suspense writer. What do you love most about the suspense genre, and in your opinion, what aspect of writing a suspense novel do you find most difficult?
“I love the high drama. Stakes in the suspense genre are at their highest—typically the stakes are life itself. When the stakes are that high, characters are pushed to their max—and they can learn about their own humanity and God in the process.
My Seatbelt Suspense® brand has a four-point promise: fast-paced, character-driven suspense with myriad twists and an interwoven thread of faith. That third point—myriad twists—is a difficult thing for me to pull off each time, because my readers get smarter with each book. They know I’m going to try to fool them. We play a game. I try to surprise them once again—and they try to figure out the twists ahead of time.”
