Jennifer Hillier

NYT bestselling author Robert Dugoni blurbs FREAK!

I don’t think it’s possible for me to not use exclamation marks!

I can’t help it!

FREAK got a blurb from New York Times bestselling thriller author Robert Dugoni!

This book freaked me out – in a good way. In a word, “frightening”. Jennifer Hillier creates a truly scary killer in Abby Maddox, the female version of Hannibal Lecter – smart, cunning and wickedly evil. I was engrossed on page one, couldn’t put the book down and breathless at the ending. Be prepared for late nights reading. Then sleep with the lights on – if you can. This one blew me away.

I’m doing cartwheels right now!

What makes this extra amazing is that I took a query workshop with Mr. Dugoni back at ThrillerFest 2009, long before I got an agent or a publisher. I remember the room was packed – people were standing! – and I took tons of notes. And now, a blurb from the man himself? Just… wow. I’m so happy and grateful. What a journey.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: DREAM BIG.
