Can you imagine a world in which there is nowhere to hide? Where your expectation of privacy no longer exists? Where all your secrets might be revealed to the world? My current work in progress—Off The Grid, scheduled for release in December, 2011—is about these issues. A world in which a cop must live Off The Gridin order to survive a formidable opponent.
As I write this novel, my research keeps taking me down some very strange avenues of science, places at first glance that seem unbelievable. For example, terrorist—aided by recent developments in technology—might be able to carry weapons of mass destruction small enough to hide inside a suitcase. Surveillance capabilities that track and record a person’s life in minute detail using technology being developed right now. Technology so minuscule that the human eye may never detect it.

I'd like to say this discussion terrifies me, Mark, but . . . I'm becoming nuclear hardened (pun intended) to the myriad ways we are easily deceived into believing what any normal person with her feet on the ground would challenge.   So, re.  OBL, he's a mirage, or nearly so.  Did he really exist as an adversary?  Or . . . was he a media phantom?  Something we could focus on long enough to distract ourselves about what is truly happening in our imploding geopolitical world?  I do not choose to be distracted, unless it is by incredible techno mystery novels with titles like Off the Grid

Thanks, Mary. I've been taking a closer look at the investigation of Osama bid Liden's method of operation. Even that had so many holes, it is a wonder it took so long to track him down. Or did they, they wouldn't, would they? Another novel in the making.

In fact, Mark, they can embed biochips with transducers in their teeth (the terrorists).  Someone, somewhere - oh, let's say Tehran - could send a signal, which would be received by the biochip, and then forwarded to a software program in - oh, let's say a nuclear plant in . . . Kentucky.  Boom! 


So, yeah, the future is not your father's Olds - no warm and fuzzy there!  I love your title and can't wait to read Off the Grid.
