A Wretch Like Me: Q & A with Nancy Major + Giveaway


About the Book


Book: A Wretch Like Me: A Modern-Day Mary Magdalene Saved by Grace

Author: Nancy Major

Genre: Memoir

Release Date: March 4, 2023

I couldn’t imagine in a million years that I would ever have the courage to face telling the world about this one ugly, vile secret I figured I’d die with. The truth of who and what I had been, how it happened, and the grace that saved me on the day my life imploded.

An anonymous packet was sent to business leaders throughout my community and surrounding thirteen-county area in 2006. As a business owner, I had made it a point to become well-known. When the president of one of the local chambers of commerce called me and I saw the packet for the first time, I literally couldn’t breathe.

I was shell-shocked and utterly shattered. I wanted to die. No words could explain away or erase what had been written. I couldn’t see any possible way to live with the guilt and shame of being “outed” as a prostitute.

If you’ve ever been tormented in a silent prison of shame over something you’ve done, haunted by a secret from your past, thought you were too broken, too bad, or too disgusting to be forgiven – you’re not alone.

You haven’t been forgotten or abandoned. You’re loved more than you could ever imagine, and above all, you’re NEVER too far gone for grace.

How would I know? Because grace saved a wretch like me.

More from Nancy

My story has a lot of elements that read more like a Hollywood screenplay. The depth of darkness in my life seemed almost surreal, like a horrible nightmare that I could not wake up from.

I ran from my shame, trying desperately to hide a devastating secret for years, until one day, to my absolute and utter horror, my secret was exposed publicly.

The guilt and humiliation nearly destroyed me. I believed I could NEVER be forgiven … what I had done was just too shameful. And certainly the circumstances seemed to scream that I was right.

BUT GOD…two profound words that changed EVERYTHING in an instant and I have never been the same.

It is my fervent prayer that my story reignites, reawakens and renews your spirit and brings you that much closer to the heart of the Father.

Author Interview

Can you share 5 random facts about you that we will not find in your bio?  


I’m a diet Mountain Dew addict 

I played drums for several years throughout adolescence 

I love documentaries 

I’m a speed reader  

I taught myself how to type when I was eleven 



What was the most challenging part of bringing this story to life?  


Trusting and believing that God would give me the courage to share it. What I found as I was writing it was that God was in every detail. I kept seeing and hearing the message “In Him, I can do all things”, again and again throughout the process. It was confirmation from beginning to end that this was exactly what He called me to do and all I had to do was trust Him. 


What was the most rewarding? 


The reviews and personal messages have been amazing, and they have touched my heart deeply. Especially the ones where people share that they are inspired by my courage to now share their stories. That’s exactly why I believe God wanted me to share mine – to help others living with shame, guilt and fear because of something hidden in their past.  
What do you hope readers will take away from the book?  


I genuinely love hearing that readers feel a deepened connection to their own faith journey and that they feel inspired to share their story. To seek healing from their wounds and to know that my story touched something inside of them. 
Where can readers follow along to see what’s coming next?  


I have a personal Facebook Group called “A Wretch Like Me” where readers can join and see what’s in development. I also have a website at www.nancymajor.net, where I will be sharing upcoming speaking engagements throughout the country and information on upcoming courses and trainings that I offer. If anyone wants to reach out to me directly, they can email me at chat@nancymajor.net.
