Warning Signs

You know you're a thriller writer when...

...your coffee table books are Forensic Autopsy: A Handbook and Atlas and America's Most Famous Serial Killers. text your doctor cousin at midnight to double check what drugs paramedics would give to a certain trauma victim. tell your mother you can't have lunch today, because you're having lunch with a forensic psychiatrist to discuss psychopathy. the past year, you've read more books about criminology, sociopathy, and weaponry that most people read in their lifetimes.'re on number five of your blog on "you know you're a thriller writer when," and you've already used the word "forensic" twice. feel pretty sure you're on several government watch lists based on Google searches and/or book purchases you've made while researching your WIP.

Do signs of your work appear around your house?
