Plotting a Thriller
Plot is essential to a good thriller. Not only do you need to have a good story, but your twists and turns need to be organic and fair to the audience (and the characters). Bestselling author Catherine McKenzie talks about how to craft a compelling thriller that will leave your audience guessing and turning the pages to find out what happened and why.
