Marci Medders Davis

Location:    Navarre, Florida

     Age:    48

Question:  How long have you been writing? 

     I have been journaling since I was just a child, "Dear Diary" kind of stuff.  When I went to college as a nontraditional student, I began to think I had the ability to make the words flow together in written work. 

Question:  What was the name of the first book you ever published, and when was it published?

    "On the Other Side of Broken", a story of survival is my first book.

Question:  Was this book published by a publisher; or did you self-publish?

      I self-published through Createspace.

Question:  Tell our readers about this very first book.  (For example:  What was the inspiration for writing it, and what was it about)?

     The inspiration for this book is my life.  After years of therapy, I decided to write everything down as an act of healing.  After three weeks of writing ten to twelve hours a day, I let my Mother read it and she encouraged me to publish it.

Question:  Can a person still buy this book?  If so, where?  

   Yes, it is available through Amazon books and on Kindle.

Question:  How many total books have you published?  

     This is my first.

Question:  List all of your titles;

  "On the Other Side of Broken", a story of survival

Question:  Any future writing projects in the works?  If so, tell us about it, and any pertinent dates to go with it.

   Yes, I have book two already in the making.  It is a continuation of Gods love and all that he has helped me discover about myself.

Question:  What is the title of your current book, and tell us a little about it.

   "On the other side of Broken", a story of survival is my story (although it is not exclusively my story because it is the tale of what many women and men across the world endure every day) of survival through mental, physical, sexual and emotional abuse. It includes details of rape, molestation, abortion and adoption.  It also revealed a life of drug and alcohol addiction and how I overcame all of the obstacles and became a better person, mother, daughter and friend.

Last question, if someone comes across this article and reads it, what would you like to tell them about why you think they should try reading your book or books? (Basically, what can you offer them in the way of information or entertainment)?

   I think this story is so relatable to many people.  It is not exclusively for women or girls because there are so many boys and men who also endure years of abuse.  This book gives hope to the hopeless, it reveals skeletons from the closet of one woman and encourages others to do the same.  It challenges individuals to stop hiding and begin to fulfill the plans God has for them and to discover Who we are in Christ so we can walk in the freedom that Jesus loves us just as we are, right where we are!

Anything else you'd like to add that I didn't ask you, but you would like to share with our readers?  

   This books records my deepest despair. It is raw, it is authentic and it is intimately written.  I truly hope that this books is able to reach the hearts and minds of individuals who truly need to be lifted from the pit of abuse and neglect. It is my desire that it fall right into the hands of those who need it most.  I truly believe it is going to help restore people back to the purpose God has for their life. Jeremiah 20:11 For I know the plans I have for you declared the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you.  Plans to give you hope and a future.

Blog Writer's Note to Author: It seems as if you've dealt with quite alot in your life. Your story seems to be one that I'm sure many who are victimized need to read.  It seems you found what you needed in the Lord to truly be saved by finding the light at the end of the tunnel.  Good Luck with this book and in your future, and thanks for the interview.
