Does each of your characters have enough motivation to be the antagonist? Take a tip of mystery novelist Shannon Work, and make sure all the characters can be found guilty...then work backward from there. In this conversation with Florida Writer Podcast host Alison Nissen, Shannon shares her techniques to ensure the audience remains guessing whodunit throughout the entire novel. 

Shannon Work grew up in Del Rio, Texas. She graduated from Texas A&M University, earning an undergraduate degree in Journalism and a master’s degree in Land Economics and Real Estate.

Most of her working life has been spent developing real estate, earning a national Best in America Living Award for one of her developments. Shannon and her husband split their time between Houston, Texas, and Telluride, Colorado.
