Abuse knows no boundaries. It doesn’t care if you are rich or poor, old or young. It can enter your life at any time and stay as long as you let it. In One Month Week Day Hour Minute Second, author Rebecca Marie discusses that the key is to release the secrets, talk about the abuse, and take the power away from the abusers. In this memoir, she shares her personal journey surviving sexual and physical abuse, describing how abusive patterns started at a young age, how negative self-esteem continued to grow, and how it ended in her falling in love with a psychopath. One Month Week Day Hour Minute Second narrates how Marie was victimized and lived in daily fear and despair, but discusses how she chose not to remain a victim and took power over her own life. Hoping to break the cycle of domestic abuse one victim at a time, Marie tells her emotional story to call attention to the problem of domestic violence. Her story shows there is hope for others.   amazon  

Question1- If you had to give any advice about boosting self esteem, what would it be?

Answer: You are worth it. Love yourself. Live in the present.

Question2 – What one thing would you say to a victim of domestic violence to help them?

Answer: There is always hope. There are resources and people out there that want to help you to get back your self-worth. If you need to talk please reach out to me at

Question3- Is there any stereotype you feel is worse than others?

Answer: Stereotyping is a negative thing all around in my opinion. Get to know someone for who they are not what group you believe they fit into. Everyone deserves to be respected as an individual.

Question4- When people think of domestic violence, most of the time they think of
women as the abused. What are your thoughts on men that are abused and how they should handle that?

Answer: I believe that abuse has no boundaries and it does not care if you are male or female. I would give men the same advice. There is always hope. You deserve to be treated with respect. You do not have to recover from abuse or domestic violence on your own, reach out and get the help you need. If you need to talk contact me at

Question5- Do you hear from your readers? What kinds of questions do they ask?

Answer: Yes, I have heard from my readers and the most common statement is thank you for being so honest. When I was reading the book I could see myself,it was like reading my story of domestic violence. One of the best comments was that; your book will have such a ripple effect. It will impact people from shore to shore and you have no idea who it will touch and help in the world.

Rebecca Marie enjoys being a mentor and her goal in sharing her story is to help others see there is hope.
