Give me a little suspense. A big dose of danger. Maybe even a murder and I’m glued to the page or the movie screen.
I sometimes feel as if I need to join a support group called ID Anonymous and stand up in a room and admit I’m an ID addict. You see, I’m addicted to the ID channel. I can stay up until two in the morning watching Forty-Eight Hours and the Cold Case shows. I love sifting through the evidence and trying to figure out who did it and see how the bad guys are caught.
Suspense has played a part in almost every book I’ve ever written. All young adult novels, that I write as C.C. Hunter, have suspense. All my Christie Craig books that I write have suspense. I just started a new series, Texas Justice, it’s an adult thriller and the first book, Don’t Close Your Eyes, is released today. Now this is not a young adult book, but for my older C.C. Hunter fans, you might want to pick it up. The ebook is on sale for only $2.99.
Yes, you might call me a thrill seeker, an ambulance chaser, but I just like the safe thrills I get while turning pages, or writing pages.
Remember the suspense woven through the Shadow Falls series? I loved watching Kylie solve the mysteries of the ghosts. And Della actually worked the crime cases while working for the FRU, the supernatural version of the FBI. Even Miranda’s story was about catching the bad guys.
There was a crime in This Heart of Mine that was solved. One that put Matt and Leah in danger. And in The Mortician’s Daughter, there’s a new crime to solve in every book.
Writing that sense of danger, the unearthing of a crime, and outwitting a villain plays a big part in my new young adult thriller, In Another Life, that will release March 26, 2019. You can even preorder now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indie Bound and Powells.
