An extremely well-organized, thorough, and useful class. I really enjoyed the brainstorming tips, which can be applied to any genre. We learned to work and rework our basic idea until it's unique and fulfills the expectations of the thriller genre. Lots of reference material was given, and examples from thrillers to study. Most of all, Steve gave very specific and elaborate feedback with specific examples of how to make our concepts, characters, and our actual writing better. And he made us write and work hard. What a great mentor he was! Thank you, Steve, and thank you, SavvyAuthors!
Thanks for the wonderful review of the workshop, Susan. I really appreciate it!!

Best wishes,
