Two writing friends Joanne Harris and Christopher Fowler talk about the art of writing thrillers. What makes a good thriller and is it any different to writing any other type of novel.

Harris is the award-winning author of Chocolat, which was made into an Oscar-nominated film starring Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche. She has written many novels including the food trilogy, Chocolat, Peaches for Monsieur le Curé, and The Lollipop Shoes, the adult fantasy The Gospel of Loki and the Runemarks series of novels which imagines our civilisation shaped by Viking invaders rather than by the Romans. She is also author of the psychological thriller Blueeyedboy.

Fowler is an award-winning author of more than 30 novels and 12 short story collections. He is particularly known for the Bryant and May Peculiar Crimes Unit detective mystery novels. He has just finished the 12th and final Bryant and May mystery, The Burning Man. Among his other works are a graphic novel, radio plays and comedy thrillers.
