Okay, so this is really cool. Airbus is using something they’re calling “smart glasses” — they’re more like goggles, really — that allow people to use their mind, eyes, and head to explore new plane models. After strapping on the virtual reality device, the users can move their head to navigate around the plane. And, […]

Ah, we made it to the first weekend of 2016! Are you exhausted from the holidays, or feeling renewed with the changing of the calendar? I’m a little bit of both, but mostly, I’m welcoming 2016 with open arms. 2015 was unbelievably busy, and I like the comfort implied in the even-numbered years. Quite a […]
In the United States legal system, we arrest criminals, put them in jail, send them to trial, and sentence them. But the path for victims is a lot murkier. That’s why we have formal victims’ rights programs here in the U.S. But unless you’re a victim or work in a legal field, you may not […]
As a crime writer, I love DNA to the moon and back. Seriously— DNA is so valuable for clues and evidence in the books I write, I don’t know what I’d do without it. Well, no one would exist without it. But you know what I mean. DNA is frequently the subject of mind-bending news […]
We’re smack dab in the middle of October — which, as you may know, is Mystery Month. How do you like your mysteries to end? With a twist, right? That’s the answer I hear most often. As I wrote earlier this week, a fairy tale ending isn’t always my favorite. I prefer surprise. There’s an […]
Should we require kids to learn cursive writing in schools? It’s a hot button issue for sure. Many schools have removed cursive writing from their curriculums. In the U.S., it’s not included in State Standards anymore in 45 states. There is a lot of debate about this, but I’m on the side of keeping this […]
A little earlier this week, I told you about three mysteries solved using DNA. In one case, the DNA helped convict someone. In one case, it identified remains. And in another case, DNA helped exonerate someone. You know I’m interested in justice, because of my background as a lawyer, and because of my Hunt for […]
One thing we lose when we choose ebooks over paperbacks or hardbacks is the ability to have an author personally autograph our book. Right? Almost. Thanks to the internet, combined with a little ingenuity, it’s possible to have authors authorgraph some of your digital books. Authorgraph is free and easy to request! How To Request An Authorgraph: Go to www.authorgraph.com/authors/DianeCapri […]
I love hearing from you. You know that, right? Email, Facebook, Blog comments, Twitter, even face-to-face if we can swing it! YOU are the reason I write, which means the more interaction, the better! (Sorry, couldn’t resist throwing in a little writer humor!) Anyway, I recently received a comment from a reader that sums up […]
I’ve been working hard on something very different for you. This time, it’s not a book, or even a story of any kind — it’s a theme song! I wanted a song because I thought the women in my books deserved it. They all work relentlessly to win, jumping hurdles and dodging bad guys along […]
