What 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.. . .

Celebrating the joyous art of being a mother, MOMumental offers an inspiring, honest, and infectiously humorous look at the perils and pleasures of raising a family in the real world. Once a devout believer in the myth of the perfect mother, author Jennifer Grant now has a more realistic yet still upbeat view of parenting and families.
