All Levels | Whether you’re penning a mystery, literary fiction, science fiction or romance story, suspense scenes are a major ingredient in practically every genre. New York Times bestselling thriller author Kevin O’Brien will discuss how to develop suspense through characterization, pace, description and point-of-view. A working author for over 22 years, he’ll also discuss how to market your work and the business side of publishing.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
Before his thrillers landed him on the New York Times Bestseller list, Kevin O’Brien was a railroad inspector. The author of 20 internationally-published thrillers, he won the Spotted Owl Award for Best Pacific Northwest Mystery, and is a core member of Seattle 7 Writers. Press & Guide said: “If Alfred Hitchcock were alive today and writing novels, his name would be Kevin O’Brien.” Kevin’s latest nail-biter is The Betrayed Wife.
