R.D. Kardon
"Incorporating Technical Expertise
without Losing the Reader”
They say “write what you know.” But what if what you know is highly technical? Our speaker discusses how to incorporate technical information into storylines while still keeping the reader engaged.
R.D. Kardon is an airline pilot who traveled the world in airplanes of every type, from single-engine Cessnas to Boeing 737s.More interesting is that she did it in a male dominated industry. Her debut novel, Flygirl, seamlessly incorporated technical aspects of flying into a delightful story about a female pilot.
Her debut novel, Flygirl, is a fictional account of Tris Miles, a female pilot with plenty to prove. With plenty of story to tell, the novel incorporates flying details without getting bogged down when addressing the technical aspects.

Kardon discusses the challenges and art of telling great stories with tech panache. Come join us as we hear from an author every bit as interesting as her lively characters.
