Because of my favored genre of Horror, one of my favorite authors is Stephen King.  He incidentally has several segmented videos that give us a glimpse into the life of an humble writer.  Since he is readily available and I like his writing style, he will be first.

It’s still worth the search if you have the time.

Next I have listed one link of an interview with one of the Preston and Child writing team. For suspense / thriller novels, there’s no better team in content, style and fast paced novels. Here Douglas Preston tells how he utilizes what he has immediately available in selecting character vulnerabilities.

Next Anthony Horowitz talks about the pacing of your material depending on the target audience of your novel. He also brings to front the value of books vs. television as far as immersion and intensity.
