I am very fortunate to be an English teacher and the hundreds of books I have read and films I have seen are my teaching assistants. Nothing beats teaching kids the difference between showing and telling sentences by reading the opening page of Lee Child’s Killing Floor, or showing them what is suspense by reading a short story called Paper Walls by John Ajvide Lindqvist.

My favourite author is Haruki Murakami and have a strong predisposition for detective procedurals. But I am always looking out for new recommendations by my fellow brethren.
