Her Name Is Mercie
by Chris Roy
Mercie Hillbrook lives a simple, quiet life working as a gas station attendant. Then her parents are killed. Her home is taken. The people responsible are excused for just doing their job. When an attempt to get justice her way lands her in trouble with the law, Mercie realizes she still has something to lose: her own life.
Then she finds reason to believe her parents were murdered… and she doesn’t care anymore.
“Mercie’s story is heartbreaking. Her parents are killed, she loses their house and then becomes a bank robber so that she can support herself. Mercie is filled with rage and I don’t think anyone could blame her. While her methods aren’t legal, you can understand what is driving her. She has nowhere to go and no one to help her- well almost. She has Kermit, who is a fantastic person to have at your back.
This is very relevant right now as so many people are losing family members, their homes and are just trying to make ends meet. So while the circumstances are different, the situations are the same. While Mercie isn’t a traditional hero, you’re rooting for her nonetheless.” – Amber Starr
