The Art of Suspense

I'm afraid I've been watching too much of NBC's The Blacklist. Suspense elements are now working themselves into the new book I'm writing.

In the name of "research" I also just bought a book from the Harlequin Intrigue line called Agent Undercover.  According to Stephen King, reading is essential to becoming a good writer.  Given his prolific success, it seems like good advice!

I'm half way through with Sophie Kinsella's The Undomestic Goddess. She's good at telling a story where the suspense slowly unfolds.

Feel free to leave a comment with your favorite books or shows that unravel elements of suspense in a compelling way.  I'm always looking for inspiration.

Sequel to Sarah Starting Over

Some readers have mentioned wanting to read a sequel to Sarah Starting Over. Well, I'm happy to say that I have started writing a book #2 so that readers can see what happens with Greyson and Sarah one year later. Here's a tiny sneak peak. We will see the story through Greyson and Sarah's eyes in this story:

My size thirteen wingtips kicked a couple of oval pebbles until they were sucked into a crack in the sidewalk. Other indentations in the walkway were overgrown with green things. The near constant rain made living in Siletz Bay like taking up residence on the surface of a Chia Pet. I’d been advised to wear more comfortable footwear by the prosthetic experts. But I had an image to maintain, leg or no leg.
The Canon camera I’d inherited from my mom after her passing hung around my neck most days. Clicking pics of married men sharing their beds with their assistants had become my bread and butter.
