What do the following teasers have in common?
– ‘One night when Cynthia Archer was 14 years old her family disappeared. Now, 25 years later, she’s about to learn what happened to her family; she might be better off never finding out’.
– “A warm summer Saturday. An amusement park. David Harwood is glad to be spending some quality time with his wife, Jan, and their four-year old son. But what begins as a pleasant family outing turns into a nightmare after an inexplicable disappearance”.
The answer – these are both ‘hooks’ that draw the reader into the story. Linwood has prepared a one-hour seminar and will answer your questions about ‘The Hook’, this critical aspect of crime writing.
This session is suitable for all writers, students, and specifically those interested in the crime fiction genre. All others who want a look behind the curtain of one of the masters of The Thriller are welcome.
