Réal Laplaine


I write to inspire, to light fires in people, to kick crusty old mediocrity in the head, to help open doors to new worlds, new dimensions, new ideas and ultimately to a better culture and a better world. One where intelligence, creativity and dreams transcend war, hatred and greed. I believe we were meant to aspire to great things - not just to be caretakers for one tiny planet, barely a grain of sand in a universe just waiting to be explored. All but two of my books so far fall into a category called high-concept thrillers. What is that? Definitions vary depending on who you ask, but in my view of it, since I write in that world, the high-concept thriller covers many sub-genres of thrillers, such as crime, scifi, geopolitical and suspense, all of which I write in, and what makes it a high-concept thriller is the originality and uniqueness of the idea which drives the book from the very outset. Whereas a romance novel is usually predictable, appealing to emotions, sultry love scenes and even betrayal, the high concept thriller presents a unique twist which instantly conceptualize an entirely different platform in the reader's mind. A high-concept romance, if there is such a thing, would see the man falling in love with, let's say, a woman from another dimension - thus converting it from the norm to the unusual. Such novels as Angels and Demons (Dan Brown), or The Martian (Andy Weir) might be seen as high-concept thrillers. The concepts themselves drive the story and the characters are developed along the way and add to the appeal.
