The thriller is one of the most popular genres in fiction. Usually containing exciting plot twists and high drama, coupled with realism and plausible characters, the thriller is also the genre most frequently adapted for the screen.
In short, as readers or viewers, we love fiction that keeps us on the edge of our seats. We lap it up like there is no tomorrow. So, if you’re a writer who has never considered writing one, it’s well worth dipping your toe into the pool of thrillers.
