Coming Soon from the Pen: Please Welcome Biblical Author Joan Wolf!

Joan WolfWhat made you interested in writing Christian Historical Fiction? Do you write any other genres?

I decided to write Christian fiction when I realized I wanted to write the story of Mary Magdalene. Because of my first publisher’s request, I ended up writing two books set in the Old Testament first. I liked doing those books, but I LOVED writing Mary’s story. I am so glad that Worthy decided to publish it.

Are there any other Historical Fiction books that you wrote and think your readers would enjoy?

I wrote forty six novels before I tackled the story of Mary. I wrote many historical romances set in the regency period of English history; I wrote two medieval mysteries; I wrote a trilogy of books about Dark Ages Britain; I even wrote a trilogy of books set in pre-historic times, when the great cave paintings were done in France and Spain.

Are there bits and pieces that were cut in editing that you might ever share with your readers?

Worthy has been wonderful. They cut virtually nothing from the book, for which I am very thankful.

Daughter of Jerusalem (FINAL)What is your favorite scene from Daughter of Jerusalem? (releases April 16, 2013!)

My favorite scene is, of course, the resurrection of Christ. I use the version from John’s gospel, where he appears first to Mary Magdalene. I have always thought she must have been very important to him if he accorded her such a great honor.

How would you relate your writing experience and research to some Creative Madness?

I don’t think it was madness that drove me to write this book. It was a deeply spiritual commitment. I got so much out of Daughter of Jerusalem – more than I put into it, I know. It brought me so much closer to the true message of Christianity.

What is something that you have never told anyone in an author interview?

What have I never told anyone in an author interview? A lot of personal things that I’m not going to tell you either!

Please please tell us about your next planned project…

I’m just beginning a book set during the reign of King David. It made for very interesting research. I’ve only just finished Chapter One so I can’t say too much else except that I like it.

What is the one thing that you want to leave readers of Daughter of Jerusalem pondering over?

I would like my readers to take away from Mary’s book the feeling that she had when she first heard the words of Jesus and knew that they were meant for her.
