I thought a lot about technology while I was coming up with the idea for my latest novella, Out of Her Comfort Zone, which features two tech geeks trying to decide if they’re ready to tie the knot. [It's, ahem, ON SALE NOW at Evernight; full price elsewhere.] One of the gadgets I seemed to be reading a lot about is the remote-controlled drone, which can observe things from scary doings in foreign lands to the snarl of traffic along I-95. And what else, I wondered?
In my story, I use a drone with a camera to take pictures of people as a further step down the paparazzi rabbit-hole. As I was in final edits, my film-maker husband came home from one of the video expos he goes to and showed me a photo he’d taken of one of the presentations: A drone that can be used for reporting and visual story-telling. And here I thought I was ahead of the curve!
