The Secrets of Killer Suspense

  • Schuler Books & Music 2820 Towne Center Blvd. Lansing, MI 48912 united states (map)

Creating a powerful thriller means blending the puzzle elements of a mystery with compelling characters, tension that keeps readers turning pages and an ending that makes them anxious for the next book!  Join critically acclaimed and award-winning suspense and romantic suspense writer Elizabeth Heiter as she details the key elements of a killer suspense novel and how to make your suspense stand out!



ELIZABETH HEITER likes her books to feature strong heroines, chilling villains, psychological twists, and a little bit of romance. Her research has taken her into the minds of serial killers, through murder investigations, and onto the FBI Academy’s shooting range. Her psychological suspense and romantic suspense novels have been published in more than a dozen countries and translated into eight languages; they've also been shortlisted for the Daphne Du Maurier award, the National Readers' Choice award and the Booksellers' Best award and won the RT Reviewers' Choice award.
