Thursday Thoughts

The plot for Secrets of a Dangerous Woman came to me during a year that was particularly loaded with politicians doing bad things.

There was the congressman who thought he was photographing his private parts for one woman when he inadvertantly tweeted it to tens of thousands.

More than one who resigned over illicit affairs.

One who claimed to be on his state's business but it turns out he was in South America... having an affair.

Brenda Carnegie is a computer hacker who loves living on the wrong side of the law. And with so many politicians doing bad things, making a list of all those who haven't been "outed" yet and selling to the highest bidder is just too good of an opportunity to pass up.

Having been in the computer field myself for more than 40 years (my God, I'm old) I do have to wonder how anyone in this day and age can have any expectation of privacy. Even private emails bounce from server to server and when the user thinks they're deleted... They really are not.

Do you have any expectation of privacy?

What better way to come up with a fresh story! Real life... it's the perfect inspiration. For me, I get a lot of ideas from dreams (What was in that Chinese food?!)

I love that you get ideas from your dreams, Bonnie! That is awesome. I bet you have some very vivid dreams!
