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.

@causticbob This reminds me of Lawn Ornament Week at U of Wisconsin, including such favorites as "Pink Flamingo Day," "Lawn Jockey Day," "Uncle Sam Mailbox Day," and culminating in the festive "Bathtub Shrine to the Virgin Mary Day." https://t.co/Ch4sBi5goV

@AmberD1116 It will be unnecessary for Biden to refuse to host Trump, because Trump will refuse to attend.

@confunctionist Republicans believe that 1) if a person is poor, it's because they deserve to be poor, and 2) if the government gives poor people money, they'll have no reason to go to work and not be poor. And that goes for their kids, too.
