Scout Book: Question Three for Mary Head

The Third Question for Mary Head, a Kindle Press Author!


Question Three

Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

I try to be original, but I also like to deliver what readers want within whatever scenario I've set up. I don't believe in writing anything you don't feel passionate about, so I wouldn't write anything I didn't like just because somebody wanted it, and I wouldn't sacrifice a story for any idea that changed my own vision, unless the idea happened to be better, or could lead in a better direction. But I do like dropping in little things here and there, thinking, "This is for you guys, enjoy."


Hannah Cole, a young graduate student attending George Washington University, and her father David Cole, a senior FBI agent, enjoy a happy life together in Arlington, Virginia. Due to the nature of his job, and having been a single father for most of Hannah's life, David has always been fiercely protective of his daughter and has taken great strides to keep her safe. But when Hannah is kidnapped from their home one night, their world is turned upside down.

With the force of the FBI behind him, including his best friend Juliet Grayson, trusted partner Chris Tyler, and rookie agent Eli Shaw, David rushes to find his daughter, while Hannah struggles to stay alive, both of them racing against a deadline that could mean the end of Hannah's life.
