The January edition of THE BIG THRILL is here!

To kick off 2018, we’ve produced a truly exciting issue. Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child discuss their inspirations and the secret to their harmonious working style, and just as important, the essentialness of making this fun. Finding joy in what suspense authors do is a theme we found over and over in this issue, whether it’s James Rollins telling how finding the perfect location or scientific nugget makes a thriller explode, Hank Phillippi Ryan interviewing Aimee Hix on how she made her debut novel happen, Rick Pullen on crafting a female protagonist with just the right amount of vulnerability, or Laura Joh Rowland on exploring the shadowy delights of Victorian England.

We bring you interviews with A. J. Tata, Thomas Perry, Brad Taylor, Chanette Paul, F. Paul Wilson, Tim Waggoner, Marissa Garner, and many more. And, to top it all off, this month marks the launch of a brand new column, “Inside Creativity,” that goes deep inside the process, with Bryan Robinson penning a deeply inspiring story about the essential nature of resilience, the secret to success for a thriller writer.

From all of us at The Big Thrill, have a great year!
