Welcome to the Thrillerfest V Blog!

We hope you'll bookmark us, just as you bookmark so many of the hundreds of the International Thriller Writers that participate in our annual conference, held in New York City in July.

ITW is a youthful organization, always ready for a new way of looking at things. You'll find that dynamism here, in blog posts from authors, agents, editors and Thrillerfest attendees, past and present.

And that same excitement you feel from your favorite reads is evident in everything ITW does, and no wonder--the organization, staffing and publicity for ThrillerFest--including this new blog--is undertaken by volunteers, most of whom are ITW authors themselves.

So pull up a chair and stay awhile ... discover the latest news on what Thrillerfest V--the fifth anniversary of the conference--has to offer. Visit old friends, make new ones, ask questions, and hear about the remarkable things in store for the conference.

Whether or not you can come see us in New York--and we hope that you can!--please join us here. It's gonna be ... a thriller!

One of many great interviews with authors that you can find each month in The Big Thrill!

Four Lives--Two Great Loves--Every Expectation Shattered. In Joan Johnston's new novel,
nine years ago Kate Grayhawk Pendleton walked into alleged killer Wyatt Shaw's life-and out of it again the next morning. Now Wyatt's back--and
has the power to shatter Kate's future with the man she loves.

"Johnston's characters struggle against seriously deranged foes and fac seeming
insourmountable obstacles to true love." BOOKLIST
