Thriller Thursday Guest — Author Carolyn Arnold

I welcome Thriller Author Carolyn Arnold today!  I LOVE Thriller Thursday!  I’m very excited to showcase Arnold’s work and I highly recommend checking out her books with one kick-ass heroine.  How could I not love these books?

Book Synopsis:

Detective Madison Knight concluded the case of a strangled woman an isolated incident. But when another woman’s body is found in a park killed by the same line of neckties, she realizes they’re dealing with something more serious.

Despite mounting pressure from the Sergeant and Chief to close the case even if it means putting an innocent man behind bars, and a partner who is more interested in saving his marriage than stopping a potential serial killer, Madison may have to go it alone if there’s not going to be another victim.

Now, on to my thriller half-dozen questions, hold onto your seat…

Jennifer Chase:  If Madison was trapped in an elevator with three other people, how would she devise a plan to escape?  Would they take any of the people with them?

Carolyn Arnold:  Madison would make sure everyone got out, somehow.  She’s probably utilize the maintenance hatch in the top of the elevator, if all other endeavors failed, such as emergency and cell phones.  She’d have Terry do the hoisting lol

Jennifer Chase:  How do you get inside Madison’s head when writing?

Carolyn Arnold:  There are times I close my eyes to hone in on the emotion, yet a lot of the time I watch my characters unfold in front of me, like a movie.  Their actions, reactions and words tell me what’s in their minds.

Jennifer Chase: What’s your specific genre?  If you could write in any other genre, what would it be and why?

Carolyn Arnold:  My main genre is mystery and thriller.  If I wrote any other genre, it would be romance because this is where it all began for me, when I was a teenager.

Jennifer Chase:  Why should readers pick up your book TIES THAT BIND?

Carolyn Arnold:  Readers should pick up TIES THAT BIND if they are fan of television shows such as Law & Order, and CSI.  Reviewers have also compared this book to JD Robb’s “In Death” series.  If readers are looking for a strong, female lead, they’ll fall in love with Madison Knight.

Jennifer Chase:  What types of emotions will readers experience when they read your book?

Carolyn Arnold:  The entire spectrum—I hope.  There are moments of anger, sadness, regret, and of course humor is sprinkled in.

Jennifer Chase:  Now, it’s time to play word association with Madison.  Please respond with one word that comes to mind (in your main character’s voice) to the words listed below.

Carolyn Arnold:

plot – justice

2012 – love

predator – killer

giggles – Terry

rural – manure

omnipresence – God

Thank you Carolyn Arnold!
