James Rollins, local best-selling thriller writer
New York Times best-selling author James Rollins is the scheduled guest speaker at the Saturday, September 21, 2013 CWC, Sacramento Branch luncheon. His subject: “Put the Thriller in Your Thriller” (or any novel).
The former Sacramento area veterinarian discovered he had a knack for writing; specifically, writing thrillers. He sold his vet practice and has since written 27 action-packed novels—with more on the way.
The New York Times says Rollins’s “roguish charm comes from his efforts to persuade readers the story is credible [through] real-life sources for his novel’s science, history and geography.” Rollins’ rare blend of action, suspense, and knowledge was also mentioned by the Huffington Post, which stated that “After Crichton passed away in 2008 he clearly passed the baton to James Rollins who, like Michael Crichton, is a renaissance man.”
Rollins will share with CWC Sacramento Branch luncheon attendees some of his secrets for building thrills into his thrillers. He will also be open to questions about his work methods, his path to publishing success and how he got to where he is today.
The monthly CWC luncheons are held at Cattlemens Restaurant, 12409 Folsom Blvd., Rancho Cordova from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

As always, members and guests are welcome.
