Book Gang Podcast Episode 12: Best Thriller Books You Might Have Missed (With Mary Kubica)

Mary Kubica joins the podcast to talk about her writing process and her latest domestic thriller, Local Woman Missing.

Her journey from writing in secret to a successful award-winning suspense writer is the story you need to hear if you have been entertaining a writing dream of your own.

We have a shared love for true crime and talk about if real-life cases have influenced her work.

I may be one of Mary’s biggest fans, and her newest edge-of-your-seat page-turner is just what you need to get you out of a reading slump.

Mary is bringing 3 of her favorite under-the-radar thrillers to today’s episode, and I think they will surprise you as much as me.

I’m also sharing a few of my favorite psychological thrillers that deliver on those unreliable narrators and murder mystery plots that kept me up until the wee hours of the night.

So, if thriller writing is something you have been entertaining, I hope today’s episode offers the inspiration you need to kick start your writing career.
