Author to Author with Humphrey Hawksley and Hank Phillippi Ryan

Hank Phillippi Ryan is a bestselling author of fourteen psychological thrillers, winning the most prestigious awards in the genre: five Agathas, five Anthonys, and the coveted Mary Higgins Clark Award. She is also on-air investigative reporter for Boston’s WHDH-TV, with thirty-seven Emmy award s and dozens more journalism prizes. National book critics call her “a superb and gifted storyteller”. She is the only author to win the Agatha in four categories: Best First, Best Novel, Best Short Story and Best Non-Fiction.

Her newest is the page-turning standalone thriller The House Guest–a story of psychological manipulation that explores the dark heart of marriage and friendship—it’s Gaslight meets Thelma & Louise. The Publishers Weekly rave review says, “Ryan is a master of suspense!” and the Library Journal starred review calls it “Binge-worthy.” Hank began her TV career in 1975, anchoring and reporting the news for TV stations in Indianapolis and then Atlanta. She’s battled her way through hurricanes, floods and blizzards, wired herself with hidden cameras, chased criminals and confronted corrupt politicians. She has interviewed world famous figures from King Charles to President Carter to Muhammad Ali. Join Hank in a special evening Goldster Conversation with Humphrey Hawksley. Hear her adventures, the ups and downs of writing and how to craft a best-selling psychological thriller. Author-to-Author Thursday December 21st at 4pm London time.
