We are now coming to the second question of the June Author Interview series. We had posted the answer for the first question recently. If you have not read the post, do it so now to learn more about them. So, it’s time to check out the answers for the second question from the Murder Mystery/Thriller/Suspense/Horror genre participating in the group interview. “Who is your favorite mystery/suspense/thriller writer of all time?”
Just in case if you are wondering who we are interviewing this month, you can check out this link and get all your author friends from The Memoirs/Biography genre to participate in the next group interview.
1) Author #1: J. J. DiBenedetto
This goes back a ways, but I always really enjoyed the Margaret Truman mysteries set in Washington, DC (“Murder at the Supreme Court”, “Murder at the White House”, etc.)
2) Author #2: Fran Veal
Oh my gosh, there are so many good ones. I’d have to say Ted Dekker is my fave, fave, fave. He wrote a series of books that were so twisted up, you could start with any of the books, read it as a stand-alone, think you had the entire story figured out, then go to one of the others and go “where the heck did that come from?” The story was so beautifully crafted and woven together, it was like following a maze, only to find the path you thought would lead you out left you at a dead end.
3) Author #3: Jim Strait
John D. MacDonald
4) Author #4: Kelli Sue Landon
Mary Higgins Clark, an all time favorite of mine! She was my very first inspiration.
Who is your favourite mystery writer? I look forward to reading your comments below.
Next, we will be revealing the answers for question #3 which is “What makes a thriller/mystery/suspense book a real page-turner?”
Stay tuned for the next post! Thank you! 🙂
