Good advice from an old hand: Ken Follett

‘A thriller is always about people in danger.  The key is to make the reader share the hero’s anxiety.  In all popular fiction, the author’s aim must be to get the reader to feel the emotions of the characters.  That’s what makes the reader turn the pages.’ – Ken Follett
