Most surprising advice from SCBWI IL Conference

I would have to say the biggest surprise today was from the wonderful Sarah Davies from Greenhouse Literary who advised us all to watch HOMELAND to see a good example of How To Construct a Thriller. So I will.

But honestly, with her brilliant English accent, she could tell me to watch static  and I’d do it, happily.
