Page One, produced by Booxby, celebrates the craft that goes into writing the first sentence, first paragraph and first page of your favorite books. The first page is often the most rewritten page of any book because it has to work so hard to do so much—hook the reader. We interview master storytellers on the struggles and stories behind the first page of their books.In Episode 4, we interview bestselling author Tess Gerritsen about all the decisions that went into the first page of her latest suspense thriller, Choose Me, co-authored by Gary Braver, which was published July 1. Tess and Gary courageously take on one of the most controversial subjects of our time—the Me Too movement and deftly craft the male and female points of view in a one-of-a-kind thriller that makes for perfect summer reading. Tess shares some secrets of the craft and approaching this kind of subject matter with honesty and compassion. If you're aspiring to write a suspense or detective series, or just interested as a reader, Tess Gerritsen has a lot to share about the demands of the genre and the painstaking research that she does for all of her books.
