There was a time, when talking about politics, was taboo. Today, it is common place to read, or hear about one political view or another; expressed openly; and in some case violently. With so many political scandals being revealed, one tends to wonder what else is being covered up; and in the name of “Diplomacy” of all things. We, as a nation, have given a lot of power, to a few people. People we trust to make “right decisions”, for the good of the country; are those the only decisions being made…”right decisions”? “Too much power in the wrong hands”, can cause chaos. What about “too much power” in the right hands? Good intentions, don’t always deliver good results; then what about “bad intentions”. Politics, Scandals, Greed, Power, Violence; how do we begin figuring it all out? Tonight we’ll tackle “Political Thrillers”. We welcome back “Movie Maven” Ms. Karen D.” to give us her spin on the four, politically based, films up for review!
What actually constitutes a "Thriller"? Adventure? Action? Mystery? Page-turning ratios?
Browse around your local B&N (while you still can) and you might notice that the Horror section has dwindled to one or two bookshelves, while Thrillers and Fantasy novels can fill two or three aisles. It's clear that the Horror label is considered a minus to marketing mavens in the publishing industry, and yet--the Thriller and fantasy sections are chock full of -- horror books!
Hmmm. So what's the real deal? Join us this Wednesday at 8pm Eastern for a riveting, spine-tingling, bone-chilling, ________ (insert your own thriller cliche here), look at what makes a Thriller…a Thriller.
Authors on the Air present thriller and mystery novelist David Wood, who will speak to the art of writing and crafting a mystery or thriller novel and what the differences are.
A word from the author: I'm an action-adventure author who first fell in love with the genre through children's mysteries like the Hardy Boys and Three Investigators. Later, I discovered Doc Savage, Indiana Jones, and Dirk Pitt. If you like contemporary thrillers, ancient mysteries, and creepy creatures from legend, give the Dane Maddock Adventures a try!
David Wood is the author of the Dane Maddock Adventures series as well as several other titles. He co-hosts the ThrillerCast podcast and is a contributing author at Thriller Central. David and his family live in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Bestselling author, attorney, award winning newspaper columnist--J.D. Rhoades is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but with a soft creamy center. A stint in UNC's creative writing program resulted in his not writing another word of fiction for 13 years, unless you count legal briefs. After a few years and an award for the column from the North Carolina Press Association, the same editor grudgingly allowed as how Rhoades wasn't a complete hack after all, and suggested he write a novel. "Hey," he said, "how hard can it be?" The answer, as it turns out, was "very hard indeed."
He wrote a novel. It sank like a stone. For some inexplicable reason, he wrote another. That one, THE DEVIL'S RIGHT HAND, was picked up by St. Martin's Minotaur and was nominated for the Shamus Award for Best First P.I. novel. Two more Jack Keller novels followed, as well as a stand-alone, BREAKING COVER.
