The Times They Are A'Changing -- Author Lynne Silver


Welcome! Thanks for stopping in to meet Author Lynne Silver

Lynne writes the popular Coded for Love series and other hot contemporary romance novels, such as Love, Technically. Before writing romance, she wrote fiction of a different sort, drafting press releases for technology corporations. Washington DC is her home (non) state, where she resides with her husband and two sons. 

So, Lynne, tell us what's on your mind.

Lynne: I recently got the rights back to a series and plan on reissuing all 6 books with fresh covers. At first, I figured new covers were all they needed, but then I glanced at some of the content and saw my heroine pull out a camera and a flip phone. Uh oh…The books were published in 2011 and yet, they were already outdated thanks to the rapid speed of technology developments.

My head spins at all the technology I love and live with now that I didn’t even dream of less than five years ago. Here are my 5 new favorite tech advances: (some are not new, they’re just new to me)

My Bank App on my iPad lets me sign in with a fingerprint. NO complicated password to remember. I deposit all checks this way, though I can’t figure out why anyone sends me actual paper checks anymore.

When I online shop using my tablet, I can take a photo scan of my credit card instead of typing in all the digits and dates.
   
My car lights up and beeps at me if it looks as if I might drive into another car.

I watch tv & movies from Hulu, Netflix & Amazon prime.
  
My robot housekeeper keeps my house clean and cooks a healthy meal each night. Wait, darn it. I don’t have this one yet.

What are some of your favorite advances in the last few years? I’m most excited for self-driving cars. I think it will be amazing to be a senior citizen and not be housebound if I can’t drive anymore.

In Deep with the FBI Agent

PASSION UNCOVERED
To Casey Cooper, Montgomery Prep isn’t just DC’s most prestigious private school—it’s her alma mater, the place where her fondest memories were made. It’s also her current employer and the target of a dangerous cyber criminal. But even more shocking than the crime is the sexy FBI agent who comes to investigate . . .
With his six-plus frame and gym-sculpted body, no one would suspect FBI special agent Sam Cooper was once an awkward teenage computer geek—no one, that is, except Casey, the gorgeous girl who captured his heart on the first day of high school and held it for the last fourteen years. When a hunt for a hacker brings Casey back into Sam’s life, his long-denied desire becomes impossible to ignore. He knows just how to make her forget the boy he was . . . and show her the man he’s become.

Excerpt:
      Casey hit send on the email just as her speakerphone buzzed with Annie’s voice sounding frantic. “Ms. Cooper.” When did she ever call her Ms. Cooper? “Someone from the FBI is here.”
     Casey’s heart leapt into her throat at hearing the FBI was calling on her until she looked up and saw Sam Cooper filling her office doorway. Oh, that FBI. Her heart didn’t settle down right away, because she was in slight shock at her first glimpse of Sam in eight years. He looked good. Really good. Like, she-wanted-to-move-around-her-desk-to-give-him-a-hug-and-see-how-taut-those-muscles-were good.
     Guess her mother had been right, and the nerdy guys from high school sometimes grew up to be the good ones. She’d always known—even as a shallow, self-absorbed teenager—that Sam Cooper was one of the good guys. But she hadn’t known he’d grow up to be this hot. Would a crystal ball have changed her behavior toward him in high school? Maybe. Likely not. No, she’d never been outright mean, but she never would’ve gone out with him either. Silly her. Now his sandy-blond hair was cut in a sleek style, making him look every bit the mysterious and dashing FBI agent. She gave in to the impulse, walking around her desk to throw her arms over his shoulders and let their chests press together.
     “Sam. It’s good to see you in person. Did you say something about visiting me on the phone yesterday?” Wow, he’d definitely filled out. The muscles under her hands were taut and sinewy.
     He grinned down at her, still keeping his arms clasped behind her spine, holding their bodies together longer than was appropriate, but she had no complaints. Clearly it had been too long since she’d been on a date if Sam Cooper was getting her this hot from a simple hug.
     “Nope. Thought I’d surprise you. Do you have a minute?” he asked.
     Reluctantly, she released him and pointed to one of the two chairs in front of her desk. “For you, I’ll make time. What’s up?”
