Meet the Author

Jane Priest Wilson is a Christian author who has been writing seriously since high school. She was a columnist and feature writer for two newspapers, and has written ministry newsletters for twenty-four years. Jane also has numerous works in progress including a second novel. There are stories about deaf children and other children's stories, and a children's chapter book.

Jane and husband John are also writing about their experiences in various ministries through the years since 1988. Stories about things like the day they saw a woman killed at a post office, the true story of "The Machete Brothers", and the summer they sang gospel music and conducted Sunday services in a café. That was in the Yukon, on the Alaska Highway. There are also many tales to relate about pastoring churches, ministering in dozens of nursing homes, and while on the road as music evangelists, which is what they are currently doing. They began their travels in a converted school bus years ago. Seven flat tires on one trip was not fun! There are good and bad things that happen along the way, and inspiring one-on-one experiences that are worth sharing with others.

MIRACLE IN MADISON, her first novel, was begun in 1978, when they were dreaming of moving to the woods and living off the land. They were looking for peace and tranquility in their lives. Ten years later, their dream had come true in the woods of Minnesota where they had found that peace through the Lord Jesus Christ. The book was finished just before starting in the ministry in 1988. Of course, after giving her life totally to Jesus Christ, it was re-written to make this mystery book into an "inspirational suspense novel". It is their earnest prayer that you will draw closer to the living God through the telling of this tale. There will be a SEQUEL coming out in the future. Watch for MIRACLE ON THE MOUNTAIN!

John and Jane married as high school sweethearts forty-six years ago. She is thankful that he has been a tremendous encouragement to her in her writing. They raised their two awesome children, Jimmy and Lara, and now have four wonderful grandchildren! Their family and serving the Lord are their greatest joys in life.

    This book was WONDERFULLY written, full of suspense, with NONE of the yuck that you normally read in books today . I would recommend it to ALL ages - Definitely keeps your attention and anticipation throughout the book - After I started reading it, I really had a hard time putting it down. Couldn't wait to find out what happened . Everyone should read it. What more can I say but "WHAT A BOOK" Can't wait for the next book by this great author.

    As a serious reader of non-fiction, generally, fiction no longer

    As a serious reader of non-fiction, generally, fiction no longer holds my interest as it once did. However, Miracle in Madison is serious material as well as entertaining!
    The subject matter is timely, and the book does not allow an easy escape for any character. Within the first chapters, characters are already reeling from repeated shocks and horrors.
    We humans have no adequate response when confronted by such unexpected and untenable situations. This was clearly seen in the media after recent school shootings in CT. Everyone simply wondered why such an incident happened without any solid answers about how to avoid future tragic events.
    Unlike our society at large, the book does offer more than questions or stock answers from pundits. The Madison residents' responses to the situation teach us about the core values which make a difference for everyone involved.
