Security expert to speak to writers


We've all heard about how utilities are potential targets for terrorists. But who are these terrorists? What's being done to protect the critical infrastructure that gives us our electricity, water and wastewater treatment?

Sarah Bewley, who works in the department responsible for the physical security of a utilities company, will speak on the issue during the next meeting of the NE Florida Sisters in Crime, 1 p.m. July 29 at the Ponte Vedra Branch Library.

Bewley writes, climbs rock walls and takes boxing lessons. She was born young, grew old very quickly, then entered into her second childhood, which she found far more satisfying than her first.

“Burning Eden” is her first mystery and the first book of the Eden County Mysteries series. She’s worked as a licensed private investigator and now works in utilities security, which is physical protection for critical infrastructure.
