Pamela Hegarty – My newest book is a thriller, The Seventh Stone. It has the action of Indiana Jones and the history of Dan Brown, but I wanted to take thrillers to a new level by leaving my readers with a question: What do you believe? I first discovered the power of writing when I transformed the mean girls in the neighborhood into the Three Green and Purple Blobs from Outer Space. I was a travel writer for many years, getting paid to scuba dive, sail, do aeronautical somersaults in a WWII biplane, and eat cookies by the fire in fine bed and breakfast inns. I wrote and contributed to ten guidebooks and published more than 300 articles in magazines and newspapers. I’ve adventured in more than 30 countries on six continents. I’ve slept with lions in the Serengeti, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and paddled a canoe through a storm in the Tasman Sea. I started womenthrillerwriters to give voice to, well, women thriller writers. It just wasn’t right that women were still being coerced by publishers to use gender-neutral initials rather than their female first name. Now this blog is morphing into a forum for all thriller writers and readers. There’s a whole new world out there. Come on an adventure with us.
