Kim Cresswell Deadly Shadow (The Assassin Chronicles) by far. Then the Whitney Steel novels. :)
Kim Cresswell The Whitney Steel books are romantic thrillers. I don't write contemporary-type romance novels.
Kim Cresswell Redemption will be the fourth Whitney Steel novel coming in 2018. It's going to be one heck of a ride!
Kim Cresswell I would begin by searching for how to plot mysteries. Then make a list of the mysteries in your own life. By making a list you may see a plot for a book or at the very least the beginning for a great story.
Kim Cresswell I only have a few books on my summer reading list at the moment due to writing deadlines but I can't wait to get started on these thrillers!

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

JET - Rogue State by Russell Blake

Jason Wade Thriller Trilogy by Rick Mofina
Kim Cresswell Great question! I had an interesting childhood filled with mystery. To this day I'm not exactly sure what was going on when I was growing up during the 70s and 80s. I can say that there was a lot of money, a lot of very rich people, and tons of expensive material things. I remember having an unmarked car parked outside our house in the country for years. My parents had parties with hundreds of people on a regular basis. The parties were so large that a special building was built on the property just for entertaining. I remember bits of conversations mentioning "the feds" and when I was a teenager I was told on various occasions "if asked" about a family member's whereabouts to say this person was "at home". I certainly have my own theory as to what was going on and I've thought many times over the years to use parts of my own childhood in a book. I still might. :)
Kim Cresswell At the moment, at least six books are planned so far.
Kim Cresswell I have experienced writer's block a few times and it's not fun. What works for me is to be creative in a completely different way. I've been designing graphics for years. If I can't write, I fire up a graphics program and design a logo, banner or a book cover.
Kim Cresswell REFLECTION (A Whitney Steel Novel) evolved after Clonaid (a company founded by the religious sect called the Raelians, announced the birth of Eve, the "first human clone" in 2002 using the similar technique to clone, Dolly the Sheep.

About 160 nations in the world have yet to outlaw the birth of human clones and others are allowing the creation of human clones as long as they are not put into a woman's womb (how do we know they aren't implanted?), add a kick-ass heroine, a sexy FBI agent, and a villain you love to hate, thus, REFLECTION was born.
Kim Cresswell Right now I'm working on RETRIBUTION, the sequel to Reflection (A Whitney Steel Novel). Whitney and Blake's story isn't over yet!

Back Cover:


Once the top leader of the Sur del Calle cartel, Colombia’s largest drug trafficking organization, Pablo Sanchez has declared revenge against Blake Barnett, the FBI agent who’d killed his twin brother over a decade ago.

After one failed attempt forced him to flee the United States, Pablo has a bold new plan and he’s even more determined to kill Blake and his fiancée, Whitney Steel.

From Las Vegas to the militant infected jungles of Bogota, Blake has no choice but to risk his life and infiltrate the cartel’s inner world and eliminate the ruthless drug lord.

But the price of failure is higher than ever as he’s forced to use the woman he loves as a pawn in a deadly game—where the events of the past and present collide.
