As a high-tech lawyer, my only requirement during working hours is a reliable Internet connection. That allows my wife and I to live in the winter in Naples, Florida, and in the summer, on Vinalhaven, an island off the coast of Maine. In between, we’re in Marblehead, Massachusetts. When I’m not writing or predicting the next cyber-disaster, I’m likely to be spending my free time roaming the back country of the American southwest in my Jeep, scouting out settings for my next book."
