What kind of research do you do for your writing?  My fiction writing deals with terrorism, so I’ve been learning to speak a little Arabic, researching weapons and explosives, and learning about law enforcement investigative techniques.  Sometimes I wonder if there is an electronic file somewhere keeping track of my surfing habits.

Tom Clancy garnered some unwanted attention from the authorities when his books were published.  Do you ever feel like your research is taking you someplace you shouldn’t be going?
