Scout Book: Question Six for Mary Head

The sixth question for Kindle Press Author Mary Head and her book No Safe Place.


Question Six

What does literary success look like to you?

Being able to make a living off of my writing; it's sort of my "dream" job, so if I could one day achieve that level of success, that, for me, would be "making it." But barring that, I also just want to see people talking about my books. I love the idea of people saying, "oh, hey, have you read this book, it's really good," and I've had that happen a couple of times, so it's nice validation that I'm on the right path.


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.
