Kat Wheeler
Kat Wheeler has got a long history in the AV industry, where she worked for 18 years in sales before she transitioned into product marketing. She’s got a passion for technology which started at a young age when she got a Commodore 64, her first computer. She loved that computer up until she realized that you could put a magnet to the screen and it made such pretty colors.

Kat (in her free time) enjoys playing poker, practicing yoga, following sports, all things technology, and exploring some new places, having visited 46 states and lived in 6. She dreams of being the first woman to win the World Series of Poker Main Event, and of owning a dog at some point, as she settles down in one home.

“There is No Cloud” is the first novel in the “Cameron Caldwell” series and was released in 2021. You never know what is listening.

Cameron Caldwell works as a sales rep for SmartTech, which is the world’s largest home automation company, and her job is to keep customers happy and buying. Which means that the current bane of her whole existence is the HomeTech Hub, this rival company’s home AI device. Her customers want to use the HTH’s voice commands in order to control the electronics that she is selling to them, and if she wants to continue selling to them, she’ll need to make sure this happens. Why can’t they just ask it about the weather and be happy about that?

Cameron, while trying to get tech supports for a client, finds something odd in HomeTech Hub and is instantly curious. Could there be something about this product that nobody is supposed to ever know? However once people begin dying, she knows that something much more complex is going on here with this product, and she is determined to figure out what the technology the whole entire world has allowed into their homes truly does.

While Cameron Caldwell digs deeper into something that she never thought would even be possible, she begins wondering what she has gotten herself into, and whether or not she will be able to get out.

Readers loved the mystery crime solving element in this novel, but it was really the characters they ended up falling for, as they are well developed and thought out. Cameron is incredibly relatable in a lot of ways, as readers also enjoy some nice bourbon, a good football game, and a mystery. There was a romance element, however it does not become the predominant theme and is never in your face. It is a slow build that does not take over the storyline.

The book has present day relevance, while also keeping you on the edge of your seat the entire time and keeping you guessing. There are plenty of twists and turns along the way that keep you hooked and not wanting to put the book down for too long. The novel is also super relatable, even if you are not all that technical. Worth reading, even if you are not in the AV industry or not a techie in any way.

This is a great story with a satisfying ending, and leaves you wanting the next book in the series right away. Kat does a fantastic job of painting pictures with her words, allowing you to imagine this as another crime drama on the TV inside of your mind. She also does a great job of bridging mystery and tech. You want it to keep going, even once it has wrapped up. Some could not even believe that this here was a debut author.

“Cloud Judgment” is the second novel in the “Cameron Caldwell” series and was released in 2022. How do you catch a killer that can murder from anywhere?

Cameron Caldwell’s life is forever changed. After she caught the HomeTech killer and lost her dream job, she is determined to get her life back on track. Her new consulting business is rough going at the moment, however she is focused on success and keeping far away from any business which involves the cops. However she meets this mysterious man that may not be what he seems, and there is just one person that she can possibly call for help.

Detective Will Justus’ world continues to change. There is this new sort of criminal on the loose, one that does not even need to be at the scene of the crime in order to commit the murder. Needing a specific sort of technical help and backed into a corner, he decides it’s time to reach out to an old friend. Regardless of their rather rocky relationship, Cameron Caldwell may just be the only person able to put these pieces together.

Together, they start the hunt for a brand new type of killer.

Kat delivers a story that is fast paced, funny, and just a tad heartbreaking at certain points. She does a fantastic job of bringing these characters to life, even those that are not alive for too long. Cameron has great relationships with Phil and Bill. Kat does a great job of building tension and suspense in a story based around remote crimes, and she does so through Cameron’s impulses.

Readers also enjoy Cameron’s sense of humor, which adds one extra dimension to this story. Cameron and her colleagues frequently rib each other, as nobody can wrap their minds around a saleswoman continuing to get caught up in conspiracies, abductions, and desperate grapples.

This one was just as good as the first, if not just a little better. It was like reuniting with some old friends. Kat delivers an easy and fun read with a pretty unpredictable twist in it. This is an exciting mystery novel that some were able to polish off in just a few hours. It has got some well thought of characters that were intertwined into this nicely.

These books are relevant tech thrillers that don’t get out into the weeds like other books do. These are thought provoking about the sorts of tech we allow into our homes unsecured.
