What's a Nice Girl Like You Doing With a Book Like That?

This Will Kill You

When do you think Homeland Security is going to put me on a watch list? I've written emails asking about how to blow up post-and-beam buildings, investigated biological warfare and phone taps and garrotes, and now I've bought a book on how people die. This is the life of a writer. You might look like a sweet suburban grandmother, but looks can be deceiving.

I rather think that Homeland Security (and yes, I'm paranoid enough to think that they are capable of knowing what I write in emails and buy online) has seen enough writers doing research to be able to figure this all out, but on the other hand, I guess I am part of the noise obscuring the signal.

Imagine if I was writing thrillers...
