OK, I have to admit, just the term, ‘dark psychological thriller’ is enough to send me under the bed. I’m the kinda person that spent the entire time during my first viewing of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie, “The Birds”, with my coat over my head. And yet, I hear you. I know that others fly to the thriller shelf in the bookstore. My husband reads them in bed and teases me by threatening to read out the grisly bits while I cower.

Working on my own novel has mad me wonder if I just need to get over myself. My heroine is just just now coming to the top of some attic stairs and I have a nagging suspicion she is not going to find a cuddly squeaky toy up there. Sigh. Guess I better stop typing and get me to a book store quick to start a serious desensitizing & a learning regimen :>o

I confess, I am not a thriller lover either. Still, I have to admire the craft and skill that authors like JT Ellison and others put into their writing.
