Ah, spring. If you’re looking for your next favorite read, we have good news—this season is blooming with exciting debuts and new releases by dozens of International Thriller Writer members. We’ve covered a bunch of them in this issue of The Big Thrill. Here, April Snellings goes Between the Lines with Rita Mae Brown for a frank discussion about books, publishing, and evolution; we learn the scoop on page-turners by first time novelists such as Melissa Cassera, Lauren Thoman, and Meagan Jennett; and we get up close and personal with bestsellers like Don Winslow, Megan Miranda, Elle Marr, Lisa Scottoline and Robert Dugoni. Plus, Dawn Ius chats with the talent behind Netflix’s latest #1 hit, The Night Agent, based on the 2018 political thriller by Matthew Quick. Find your cozy blanket or shady spot under a tree and settle in—the April issue of The Big Thrill is live now!
