Mercy Thompson AdaptationApril 1, 2023
New York Times Best Selling Author Patricia Briggs’ office confirms the donation of the rights to produce an adaptation of the Mercy Thompson series to a local Tri-Cities high school, to be used as a fund raiser for their miniature goat barn raising. The Finnish language class of Richland High School (Home of the Bombers) has also received a substantial grant from the Cumbric Preservation Society, which will be used to produce the Claymation animation (with Finish Subtitles for class credit) of Briggs’ best selling series.
Briggs’ office also confirms that, per the terms of Patty’s legal agreement with Amazon, all characters featured in this adaptation must be written out of future books, so fans will no longer be able to read about the adventures of fan favorite characters Jesse, Tad, and Medea. Briggs has assured her fans that their demise will be painless and quick, and the memorials will be tasteful.

Patty has long been a supporter of the Public school system and has especially wanted to give back locally. The opportunity to share her love of animals by helping build an area where students can study animal science through a hands on miniature goat experience is so fulfilling.
It’s sad to see the characters of Jesse, Tad and Medea leave the Mercy Thompson written universe but we’re excited to see this new journey the class has set for them. The students are hard at work creating but have kindly sent a few behind the scenes pictures so that we can share a bit of the magic behind the curtain.
