Reader Review: "It was very difficult to put down! Holly has a talent to appeal to the technically minded person and bring a sense of realism into the fiction. I look forward to reading additional books about Alice!" -- Jack Swets
What would you do to possess unlimited knowledge and power?
Nineteen year-old Alice McArthur never had a choice. A shy girl from a small town, Alice has gained a reputation for her near-genius programming abilities, even getting the attention of EngineerCorp, a rising electronics empire. With her unique skill-set, she is hand-picked to test their network security by hacking into their global mainframe.
But something goes terribly wrong.
The next thing Alice knows, she wakes up on the floor with a migraine, unnatural powers, a server’s worth of data in her head and the realization that this job was not what it seemed.
Now a fugitive from justice and on the run from the evil leader of a corporate empire, Alice doesn’t know who to trust or where to turn. She must find a way to secure her freedom and stop those who would keep her prisoner for life -- or worse.
Holly McCaghren was born and raised in the Houston, Texas area. "Mind Trace" is her debut novel and first adventure into the publishing world after years of an overactive imagination at work. With a background heavy in engineering and technical information, Holly has a unique viewpoint that helped to inspire the story of Alice McArthur.
While "Mind Trace" was designed to be a stand-alone novel, Holly has expressed tentative plans to continue Alice's adventures in the future.
