DRIVEN What’s a day in my life like? Ha! You wouldn’t be able to handle it. Some people call me a serial killer. Others call me a victim extreme of circumstances. And still others think I’m just a spoiled, rich brat who never learned her boundaries. The only thing they can seem to agree on is that I’m dead. Or at least, I’m supposed to be dead.

The only people who know the truth, that I’m very much alive in addition to being the mind behind the best murder cover up this city has ever witnessed, are the ones on my payroll. And not all of them will make it out of the story alive. In fact, I can pretty much guarantee almost none of them will. Sshhh…they don’t know that yet.

In the meantime, I spend my days cooped up inside a suite in the Ritz Carlton, fighting through a wine induced fog as I secretly plot revenge – for myself, for my family, and for all that I loved and lost in life.

And because the key players have so strongly underestimated me for most of my life, they have no idea what I’m capable of now. They have no idea that every minute of every day of my entire life since high school has lead me to this moment. To the moment when I can watch my enemies suffer as everything they’ve built for themselves – at my expense, mind you – crumbles down around them. In fact, they’ll never even seen it coming until it’s hit them. Which it won’t, until I’m safely out of the country, living very well on all the money I stole back from them over the years. Money that should have been left to me to begin with, that should have been my inheritance.

So, now I ask you – am I a victim who’s finally cracked under the emotional pressure of being me? Or am I the greatest criminal this city has ever seen? You decide, read my book. Driven.

You can read more about Mara in Driven, the second book in the “Discovered” thriller series. The first book in the series is Calculated.
