William Hammett, Independent Ghostwriter


Ghostwriting a thriller calls for consummate skill in narrative pacing since readers should feel compelled to keep turning the pages. Plots may deal with espionage, secret codes, government security, politics, high-tech inventions--anything to keep the heart pounding.

Short chapters (think Dan Brown and The Da Vinci Code) work best to move the narrative at breakneck speed. Keeping a protagonist in constant danger ensures that the reader finishes the novel feeling satisfied but out of breath.

When Dan Brown published The Da Vinci Code, my inbox filled up with dozens of requests to write books of the same ilk. Thrillers remain popular today, such as those by James Rollins and other writers who saw the market potential for the genre. Thrillers fall into several categories, such as political thrillers, legal thrillers, and medical thrillers, to name just a few.

I've written several thrillers over the years, so contact me if you have the next great idea to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
