Author Interview – Marie Maiden

As you explain in your book, there were broken pieces and missing parts from your life.  What were the broken pieces of your life that you wrote about in your book?

The missing pieces of my life were my Father and my Father’s family.  I didn’t know my father and his side of my family and I needed to know them in order to move forward with my life.

The focus of your book centers around your desire to meet your long lost father.  What was it like being a child without a father?

To me, being without my father as a child was like having a constant nagging pain in my chest that would not go away.

You explain in your book that, you searched for your father and the search lasted eighteen years.  Why didn’t you give up? What made you keep searching for your father after 18 years?

I kept searching for my father because I became driven to succeed in accomplishing my goal of being able to tell everyone that I know who my Father is.

What methods did you use to find your father?

To find my father, I used people search engines on the internet, court records for public viewing and records from the Social Security Administration.

During your 18 year long search for your father, you ended up finding the plantation where your ancestors lived as slave.  What was it like for you to find the plantation home of your ancestors?

Finding the plantation where my ancestors lived as slaves was like finding the first part of the cure for the emotional pain that I felt over not knowing my father. I began to feel a sense of well-being deep down in my soul, that I had not felt before. I began to feel connected to my father and his family before I had found and met them.

You Cannot Find Peace

You Cannot Find Peace Until You Find All The Pieces tells the story of how God through Jesus Christ transformed my life and gave me the strength to overcome a less than desirable childhood, the regrets of becoming a teen mother, anger, immaturity, poor decision making and a really bad attitude.
