Welcome to ThrillerFest season! We hope you’re as excited as we are! The Big Thrill team kicks off the month with a Between the Lines interview featuring New York Times bestselling author Don Bentley. Don sat down with José H. Bográn to chat about his spring releases, keeping characters fresh, and what it takes to continue a legacy series. K.L. Romo talks to New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Allison Brennan about her latest in the Quinn & Costa series and international bestselling author Rick Mofina as he asks readers to consider what they would do to protect the ones they love. We travel to Lagos with Michael Sears as he chats with Vanessa Walters about her electrifying debut. Fans of historical fiction will want to join Wendy Tyson as she discusses the research and logistics behind THE LONG MARCH HOME, the thrilling coming-of-age story from New York Times bestselling authors Tosca Lee and Marcus Brotherton. Millie Naylor Hast chats with Taylor Adams about how to provoke a serial killer, Mindy Carlson gets Up Close with Sarah Strohmeyer as they dig into the power of small-town grudges, and Neil Nyren interviews debut author I.S.
