We’ve got another fun interview for you this month. We chatted with author and self-proclaimed L.A. stan Rachel Howzell Hall about her new book, What Never Happened, and what it’s like to be a Black woman in the thriller space — whether that be as an author or a main character.
Learn more about the plotting process and character development of thriller characters, Rachel’s philosophy on plot twists and which of her books she thinks she’d survive.
Rachel Howzell Hall is the New York Times bestselling author of We Lie Here; These Toxic Things; And Now She’s Gone; They All Fall Down; and, with James Patterson, The Good Sister, which was included in Patterson’s collection The Family Lawyer. A Los Angeles Times Book Prize finalist as well as an Anthony, International Thriller Writers, and Lefty Award nominee, Rachel is also the author of Land of Shadows, Skies of Ash, Trail of Echoes, and City of Saviors in the Detective Elouise Norton series. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter. Find her on Twitter and Instagram.
