I finished The China-Africa Parallax: A Ryan and Gillian Mystery. This is a novel about the theft of intellectual property from universities. There's no firewall long enough or high enough to prevent theft or tampering with data posted on a public site. Data security on US government computers and university campuses is a major issue today. This novel is timely, I believe, since the US has claimed China has been hacking government computers. No, I had no prior knowledge about cyber warfare. It just seemed like a potential international issue.
Now I‘m writing The Nathan Culper Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is a fictitious society with a singular mission: cleanse school faculties, public schools and universities, of teachers and professors who aren’t true Americans, which is White. It’s a frightening circumstance but not too far-fetched. “Patriotic” hate groups have been growing in number at an alarming rate, according to research completed by the Southern Poverty Law Center in Birmingham, AL. I've also been writing more poems in the last year. I 've enjoyed it because I like to play words to see whether I can frame with words the ideas I'm trying to explain.
