You would think that after 20+ years in this business I would have all the answers. Well there are days when I definitely still feel like I have more questions than answers.

I tend to think that I like suspense more than I like thrillers and I think I know what the difference is, but when asked by writers to define them I’m not sure I know exactly how to do that. I guess I’m not sure the answer is always cut and dry.
