More About the Author
In the seventh grade, Marci received her first literary recognition for writing a zany Halloween story. The prize? A five dollar gift certificate to a local bookstore. In those days, they had local bookstores. She hasn't looked back since, and has just had her 21st book published. Marci's most recent titles, People of the Nativity, and Being the Body of Christ, are both published by Bayard's American publisher, Twenty-Third Publications. Twenty-Third will release her next book, Prepare to Heal!, in 2014.
Marci is a long-time contributor to Guideposts Books' Daily Guideposts, and her first hard-cover book for Guideposts, How to Pray When You Think You Can't, has sold over 70,000 copies. Her popular Guideposts novel, The Christmas Glass, has been translated into Norwegian and is selling in Norway in both hard - and soft - cover. It is also available as an e-book.
Marci's other publishers include ACTA Publications, Ave Maria Press/Notre Dame, Catholic Book Publishing, Liturgical Press, Resurrection Press, and Winslow House.
She and her husband, Charlie Duffy, live in New London, Connecticut, but are willing to go anywhere as long as they can stay at a Residence Inn near a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods.
She loves to hear from readers and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can follow her on Twitter ... when life as we know it comes to an end.
