Mystery and thriller are my two favorite fiction genres, hands down. While I do read other types of fiction, most of my money goes to mysteries and thrillers, and admittedly, I love an opportunity to edit a mystery or thriller.
Now, I don’t give preferential treatment to any editing client, but I am carving out some space here on my site just for mystery/thriller writers. Because I love you, and hope to be one of you someday.
Since you’re an author who writes about mystery and mayhem, all the material on this site is designed to benefit you. If you haven’t done so, be sure to check out the Resources page, peruse the blog, and sign up for my newsletter (bottom of this page) to receive regular updates and news you can use. In addition to all that, here are some things that might interest you. (Note: Some links on this page may be affiliate links.)
