From books to movies, the category of "psychological suspense" is getting tossed about a lot lately. Just what does it mean for a writer to penetrate a reader's subconscious and build suspense in a way that makes one's pulse quicken? It is equally interesting that the characters are often somehow displaced inside their own minds as well. And with all this time spent plumbing the souls of others, it makes us wonder about what forces are at play in the writer's brain too.
