    Definition by Mirriam-Webster:
    ... one that produces thrills ; especially : a work of fiction or drama designed to hold the interest by the use of a high degree of action, intrigue, adventure, or suspense.
    (First coined, according to M-W's Tenth, in 1889) 
      The only sub-definition is: Techno-thriller: a thriller whose plot relies on modern technology
    (No notation about when first coined.)
      A writing career, like life, is a journey not a destination.
