About the Author

This is a work of fiction, although I have enjoyed weaving truths within its pages. After all, you probably know that Edith Stein and Padre Pio were real; but maybe you�ve never heard of St. Sharbel�and if that is the case I hope that reading a bit about him will bless you. Prayers such as the Amidah and the Pardon Prayer are real. Some facts about geographical locations written about in this work of fiction are true, too. You get the idea.

Miriam is somewhat of a sequel to my first work of fiction Elizabeth: A Holy Land Pilgrimage�although one needn�t have read Elizabeth to read Miriam (but I certainly hope that if you didn�t, this will entice you to do so!). It is a long time in the making. Maybe because God had to use a number of people to nudge me along and show me that it was time to write this book. These people include friends like Pam, Valerie, Nancy, Gerri, Chris, Amy, and Annette and also some interesting �signs� from the Almighty Himself; but nothing would be possible if it weren�t for my husband John who has far greater confidence in me than I could ever have in myself. I also need to thank Andrea for her immense help in gathering information about the works of Edith Stein.
Ultimately, my prayer is that every reader of Miriam: Repentance and Redemption in Rome is blessed by the work. I certainly was in listening to God and writing it for you!
The Scripture quotes I used within this work are taken from either The Navarre Bible or Saint Joseph Edition of the New American Bible (I love both!). Other quotes I used came from the following works that I have read over the years and have cherished: The Big Book of Christian Mysticism by Carl McColman; Andersen�s Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen; Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas; The Divine Comedy by Dante; Edith Stein: An Autobiography; The Glory Within by Corey Russell; The Journey by Billy Graham; The Privilege of Being a Woman by Alice von Hildebrand.
