About the Author

Donna Mumma perfected storytelling in her first-grade classroom, spinning tales exciting enough to settle a roomful of antsy six-year-olds. She is an award-winning author and loves to write about flawed people who find a way to overcome and thrive. A Florida native, she now lives in St. Petersburg, spending time with her husband, adult children, and their energetic collie, Duke.


"A powerful story about the wounds we carry, and the courage it takes to let them go."
-- Zena Dell Lowe, The Storytellers Mission

"Asia and Ivy's story broke my heart, had me rooting for them, then wanting to protect them--all in the space of the first chapters. Donna Mumma's debut novel forces us to look at the possible long-term effects of childhood wounds, then give ourselves grace and time to heal, even if that healing comes in baby steps."
--Shellie Arnold, Author of The Barn Church Series

"Donna Mumma's debut novel, Fresh Scars, is a moving and poignant tale that shows just how strong the human spirit can be. This one touches all the emotions, and readers may very well find the courage to face a few of their own difficulties after reading it! Don't miss this well-crafted and redemptive story!"
--Jennifer Uhlarik, 2020 Will Rogers Medallion Award Finalist, Sand Creek Serenade

"Fresh Scars immerses readers in the skin of characters who battle the trauma of childhood abuse and discover the spiritual strength to overcome it. Author Donna Mumma crafts an authentic depiction of anxiety, sibling rivalry among survivors, and the triggers which draw each sister back to relive the past. The tangles of psychological realism weave themselves around a compelling mystery while the drama proves equally captivating. I felt entwined with the characters until reaching the perfect and satisfying ending. I couldn't recommend Mumma's novel more highly."
--Tina Yeager, LMHC, Life Coach, Author, Speaker, and Host of the Flourish-Meant Podcast

"Donna Mumma takes readers on a thought-provoking journey into the dynamics of family history. Anyone with a long and difficult history with parents and siblings and the subsequent, "you musts" of settling an estate will relate to Fresh Scars."
--James Cressler, author of Demimonde and Diary of an Oak Tree
