Q: Your story could easily be described as a page turner. What would you say you did consciously to achieve this?

A: To me, writing a page-turner is all about dramatic pacing. If the pace of the novel is too fast in the beginning, you lose your ability to ramp up the action toward the end. You have to hook the audience with each scene, end each chapter with a cliff-hanger, build tension throughout the book and bring it to a head-spinning, knee-buckling surprise ending, concluding multiple interwoven subplots. At least, that is the objective.
