    • These thrillers even attract the occasional readers. πŸ˜‰
      I read the first Jack Reacher books before the hype; maybe that’s why I like them. Whenever you find the time to read a Jack Reacher book – ignore the movies, Teri.

  1. Of course, Lee Child is one of my favorites. The quote “The way to write a thriller is to ask a question at the beginning, and answer it at the end.” I had never thought of thrillers that way but I have to say it is pretty much the way it is.

    • Excellent choice, John. I liked this quote right from the start – it is straightforward, true; perhaps similar to eating with fork and knife – we don’t think about it, just eat. You write like that, without giving it a thought, doing it right is part of your writing process.
