Thrillerfest headshot of author K J Howe

Kimberley Howe, Associate Director of ThrillerFest - the premiere conference for thriller enthusiasts - and member of the Rogue Women blog ("Writers of spies, lies, and suspense with global outreach. Secrets divulged.") will talk about The Freedom Broker, her debut thriller that explores the dark world of elite kidnap negotiation and recovery.

The Freedom Broker by K J Howe

For the past several years, KJ has researched the world of kidnapping. She has interviewed elite negotiators, former hostages, reintegration experts, K&R insurance executives, and the Special Forces soldiers who deliver ransoms and execute rescues. Howe would like to share some of this intensive research, including how she created her series character, Thea Paris. While home is Toronto, she is often missing in action since travel and adventure are her passions. Howe would also be delighted to answer questions about ThrillerFest and help crime fiction authors in any way she can.
