The Thrill Ride Questionnaire
What is your favourite genre out of Thriller, Mystery, Suspense and Horror? Why?
Thriller is my favourite, specifically Psychological Thrillers, the ones that mess with your mind while keeping you on the edge of your seat and awake far past your bedtime.
I would love to become a Profiling Detective (just a wish, not reality) trying to figure out who the killer or character really is and why they are etc.
Who are your top 3 authors?
Mary Higgins Clark - I have always loved her, she has been my go to author for over 15 years.
Andrea Kane - After reading Twisted I was impressed and have enjoyed 3 more by her.
Dan Wells - He gave a little of everything in his trilogy, horror, mystery, psychological thriller, suspense, I am a fan for life.
Tell us who your favourite male and female authors are in the genre?
For Thrillers I will say:
Andrea Kane and Vincent Zandri

The Master of the Game by Sidney Sheldon
