2016 USA Best Book Awards Finalist, General Fiction
Eleven-year-old Copper Daniels is homeless and alone. She spends her nights sleeping beneath the cemetery's Warrior Angel statue for protection, and her days battling the mean streets of Remington, Texas, hell-bent on discovering what happened the night her Mama disappeared. While Copper and her rag-tag group of friends find danger at every corner, two horrors are certain: her Mama's really missing and someone's after Copper, too.
In the tradition of The Lovely Bones and Room, Pennies from Burger Heaven tells a dark story through the eyes of a child. With wit and wisdom, Copper Daniels will steal your heart, then break it in two.

    INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHORQ: What makes the Burger Heaven series special?A: In 2008, I drove through the gates of my local cemetery, and heard an imaginary voice whispering in my ear. It was a homeless girl who said that she and her mama lived at the Warrior Angel, but her mom had gone missing. I started writing the Burger Heaven series that night to see what happened to Copper Daniels' family, and to her life. I love Copper because she's a strong female protagonist, with an unforgettable story.
    Q: Why should readers give your books a try?A: Because the Burger Heaven series are fast paced action books, with complex characters and great plots. They're intense stories that aren't afraid to explore dark matters, but with humor and hope along the way. I enjoy exploring age-old themes: good versus evil, forgiveness, redemption, as well as love conquers all.Q: Which eBook Categories can readers find the Burger Heaven Series?
    • Mystery, Thriller & Suspense
    • Psychological Thriller
    • Action & Adventure
    • Literary Fiction
    • Coming of Age
    • Young Adult
    Q: Where can readers connect with you?A: Join my email list at marcymckay.com. I send out posts about once or twice a month, so I don't hound people. I don't have time. I'm too busy working on the next Burger Heaven book.Happy reading!
