Hi, this is Margaret Daley. I was doing some research for one of my Love Inspired Suspense books I'm writing. I needed to find out how easy it was for someone to find out information about a person on the Internet. I asked that question on several loops I'm on and got a lot of answers. The one thing that stood out in all the answers was that it is easy to get information on a person through the Internet.
There is no privacy anymore. We've seen this coming. Every celebrity and politician can vouch for that. Their lives are splashed all over the news for anyone to read. As a writer this is something we can use in our stories.
Since I started writing suspense (years ago), the way things are being done has changed rapidly. A lot is due to the Internet. People carry cell phones and can call from just about anywhere. DNA testing. We can google how to make a bomb or anything else like that. We can see satellite pictures of a place--a person's house, a business. It is much harder to "disappear". Those are just a few things that has changed the scene in a suspense book. What are some you can think of?
