Hi, I'm Lexi Carmichael, a 25-year old, on-again, off-again hacker. By day, I work as the Director of Information Security at a hot new cyber-intelligence firm just outside of Washington, D.C. By night, I’m a gamer, book nerd and fangirl (Bond, Star Wars, Dr. Who, Lord of the Rings). I’ve got long brown hair, no discernible curves, and zip in the social skills department. I double-majored in mathematics and computer science at Georgetown University with a specialty in cybersecurity. Ask me to talk about a rigorous axiomatic framework or computational complexity theory, and I’m all over it. Ask me to make small talk and I’ll imagine myself jumping off a bridge.
I can count the number of my closest friends on one hand, but those friends are pretty cool. There's my former college roommate, Basia Kowalski, the pretty, social butterfly who speaks a zillion languages; the genius Zimmerman twins, Elvis and Xavier; my boss, Finn Shaughnessy (who I may or may not be dating); and Slash, a sexy uberhacker who comes and goes in my life with alarming irregularity. As of late, my ho-hum existence has become downright treacherous. Who knew hacking could be so dangerous?
Come along for the ride and get your GEEK ON!
A Geek's Worst Nightmare: Going Back to High School
Returning to high school is not something I ever wanted to do over—it was awful the first time around. So why do I have to go back as part of a new undercover assignment? Because the universe loves playing jokes on me, obviously.
I've been ordered to go all 21 Jump Street and track down the students who are breaking into the computer system, changing grades, and causing all kinds of havoc. Although I'm not thrilled about my new gig, at least it gives me something to do other than worry over the fact that I now have a boyfriend. And no freaking idea what to get him for Christmas.
Or it did give me something else to worry about, until I stumbled across a more sinister threat. I was shocked to find distinct traces of a group of international hackers inside the network. Why would dangerous cyber mercenaries be interested in a high school in the middle of Washington, D.C.? What exactly have I gotten myself into?
Catch up with Lexi in No One Lives Twice, No One to Trust, No Money Down, No Place Like Rome, and No Biz Like Showbiz.!
