Learn more about Clay Mercer, his background and how that is reflected in his published works through this week’s Self-Publishing Author Spotlight.

????????????????????????????????????

About the Author:

Clay Culpepper Mercer Born in the South and raised on the back of a horse, and he has never been one to conceal his feelings. “I ain’t afraid of snakes, green-broke horses, or red-headed women, but don’t ask me to loan you money or pick you up at the airport.”

Published weekly in his hometown newspaper, The Cordele Dispatch, Clay uses his own brand of down-home humor to reflect on the methods Americans employ in the pursuit of happiness.

Readers can also find Clay on his website, where he has also been known to show off his favorite horses.

cover-10Low Country Boil: A Novel

When retired child abuse investigator/horse bum Brian Edwards receives a phone call from the governor, he initially suspects a practical joke. The reality is that the governor’s niece is missing and he wants Brian to find her, quietly and without attracting any official attention to the governor or his family. This particular summer in Savannah, Georgia, where the heat, the humidity, and the pollen count are usually in triple digits, turns exceptionally hot when terrorists attack the hotel hosting a fund-raiser held for the governor just as Brian and his team of unlikely recruits are poised to rescue the Governor’s niece. Low Country Boil offers a revealing look into the disabilities field and the professionals that serve individuals with disabilities, while weaving a compelling tale of intrigue and deception coupled with the ruthless violence associated with the international drug trade. Brian’s penchant for bending regulations, and ignoring those he can’t bend, proves to be just the recipe for success in this down home thriller.

After his daring rescue of the Governor’s niece, Brian Edwards wants to go back to the farm and settle into life. Unfortunately, several law enforcement agencies want to question Brian about his involvement with various high crimes and misdemeanors committed by persons unknown in Savannah the week before. Brian’s efforts to clear himself result in his being recruited, at the highest political levels, to command a unit whose stated mission is to disrupt a human trafficking network operating in the southeast United States. In the exciting sequel to Low Country Boil, Brian Edwards returns with his celebrated flair and signature Stetson. His monumental ego and penchant for witticism don’t seem to be dampened when he and Maggie win the jackpot in Georgia’s lottery, a stunning $100 million. Name Your Poison serves up another helping of Clay Mercer’s apt style of combining action, intrigue, and old-fashioned vigilante justice.

2045 C.E. – North America is now dominated by the oppressive regime of Abdullah al-Rashid, who governs The American Regions (formerly the United States and Mexico) with the iron fist of Sharia Law. His cruel policies are enforced by the National People’s Protective Organization, commonly known as “the Nappos.” Punishment is often swift and lethal, but justice has become a thing of the past. With the population decimated by religious purges, disease, and famine, few dare to dream of revolution and none dare to call its name. In the deep south, Cable Broxton assembles a ragtag force from the most brutal survivors of the oppression of Abdullah’s regime. Knowing that the odds are against them at every turn, they relentlessly and cruelly pursue the one thing everyone took for granted until it was gone: Freedom.
