Read, read, read. Read everything - trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it. Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.
King of the Streets
The third novel in the Sam Turner series.
This is an adroit and thoughtful thriller, well worth a read. Pete Whittaker, Tribune.
