Writers are often told, “Write what you know.” Historical thriller novelist Steve Berry says, “Write what you love.” As a novelist and psychiatrist, I’ve become intimate with fear, and while I don’t “love” it, I do love writing about it.

These are troubling concerns, but they don’t rise to the level of true fear—the kind brimming in psychological thrillers.
