An Interview with Author Ernie Lindsey

1. What got you started with the Sara Winthrop Psychological Thriller Series?

I write as if I'm reading the story as I go, so I create the type of fiction that I'm drawn to. Some of the best psychological thrillers have influenced my work recently, like Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.

Those two are absolutely masterful, and I feel like I should use them as study guides.

2. Sara's Game has been downloaded over half a million times worldwide, and all of your titles together have been downloaded nearly 1.1 million times. How has the success of Sara's Game changed your writing career?

Having Sara's Game see so much success (particularly when it reached #2 on the Kindle books best sellers list) has literally made my career what it is today. I couldn't be more thankful to Amazon for recognizing its potential and featuring it on a number of occasions.

The access to so many readers, fans, and new friends has given me the opportunity to write Amazon books full time and I wouldn't be where I am today without my readers. I'll be forever grateful.

3. You write a lot of suspense, mystery, and thriller novels. What are some of the top qualities you look for in other Amazon books?

That sense of urgency that keeps you flipping the pages long after you should've gone to bed. It's what I look for in the fiction that I read, and I absolutely try to instill that in my work.

When I first began reading suspense thriller books, I cut my teeth on Dean Koontz, and for clever mysteries, it was Elmore Leonard. Two of my heroes.

4. Are the titles in this thriller series chronological and what should readers expect?

Well, if a reader is looking for good psychological thriller books, Sara's Game is a nice place to start, especially now that they're a part of the Kindle Unlimited free books program. (The author says, sheepishly.) With the Sara novels, readers should expect a fast-paced, heart-pounding journey throughout the whole series, and they are chronological, actually.

They do work as standalone novels, but they're best read in order so that you won't miss important details from earlier parts of the story.

So, the thriller series should be read like this: Sara's Game, Sara's Past, Sara's Fear, and then the companion novella, One More Game, which comes later and features a different main character than Sara herself.

5. What are some of the themes, ideas, and categories that new readers can look for in Sara's Game?

Ultimately, as one reviewer suggests, this is a novel that asks, "How far will one mother go for her children?"

It falls in line with James Patterson's suspense kidnapping books; it's part psychological thriller, part puzzle, part game, and readers are encouraged to solve the clues along with Sara.

Additionally, you could say that this would easily fall into book club recommendations, beach reads, and the most suitable categories for mystery, thriller, and suspense.
