What Are The Dangerous Possibilities of AI?

A Killer App
explores the dangerous possibilities opened by Artificial

Intelligence and deepfakes.

Deepfakes Can Be Murder

The Chameleon, an Artificial Intelligence expert, can create a deepfake of almost anyone-living or dead. Even more frightening is the Chameleon's ability to seek out disturbed souls and laser-focus their rage. A talent she employs to compel her subjects to commit violence on her behalf.

Kylee Kane, a security consultant for Welch HOA Management, finds the Chameleon's first victim, Andy Fyke, crumpled at the bottom of a flight of stairs. Kylee suspects the fall's no accident and is tied to Andy's campaign to prohibit rentals in his Hilton Head Island community. Andy's obvious enemies have ironclad alibis.

Then another Lowcountry HOA retiree dies in a hit-and-run boat tragedy. Are the incidents linked? Kylee thinks so, and relentlessly pursues the Chameleon, who turns her full attention on permanently sidelining Kylee.

A journalism major, I got my first paid writing job with Plymouth Traveler Magazine the summer after my sophomore year at Northwestern University. My editors were a hoot, and I was hooked.

In the decades since then (my gray hair hints at the number), I’ve written hundreds of magazine features for business and trade magazines, freelanced for advertising agencies, written speeches for corporate executives, produced marketing brochures and newsletters, planned PR events, scripted videos, and written Help for tech products.

I enjoyed it all, but nothing compares to the joy of researching and writing mysteries and suspense novels. In 2022, I celebrated my tenth year as a traditionally published author!

When I’m not writing (or reading), I enjoy tennis, swimming, gardening and long walks with my husband. We now live on a lake in Upstate South Carolina. Though we’ve also called Fripp Island, SC, Durham, NC, Atlanta, GA, and Rochester, NY, home.
