Charles O’Donnell writes thrillers with high-tech themes in international and futuristic settings. He recently retired from a career of thirty-five years in engineering to write full-time, leveraging his experience leading international teams to create compelling settings in faraway lands.

His latest books, Shredded and Shade, are the product of his fascination with the progress of technology to either augment reality or to replace it entirely, and his concern over the erosion of privacy in a world in which everything is shared online, and nobody reads the terms and conditions.

When Charles isn’t writing, he’s reading, and when he’s not reading or writing, he’s woodworking, stargazing, lawn-mowing, grapevine-tending or meat-grilling.

Charles lives with Helen, his wife, life partner and fellow paranoid in Westerville, Ohio.

@Reine1989 I remember that. I think when they got to Harrison they asked, "Are you okay?" and he answered, "I think my arm is broken, but I'm okay."

@RonFilipkowski They must really like the guy in the car. They’re all giving him the “okay” sign. 👌

@RonFilipkowski With midterms almost a year away, all I can say is, Democrats have shitty timing.
