“Artfully written and beautifully illustrated.”—The Beacon

About the Author

Thomas J. Craughwell has written about saints for the Wall Street Journal, Inside the Vatican, and Catholic Digest, among other national publications. He lives in New York.

More About the Author

After four years in a doctoral program studying medieval English literature, three years as a copywriter for Book-of-the-Month Club, and one year as a marketing director for a pricey, upscale travel company, I went into business for myself as a full-time writer in 1992. (Yeah. I can't believe the business has stayed afloat this long either).
As a writer, I really don't specialize; my resume is all over the map. I developed the concept and wrote the script for History Book Club's first television commercial. I've written direct mail for Time-Life Books, TV Guide, The Reader's Digest, Hilton Hotels, and the American Banking Association. I wrote the original Barnes & Noble web site; a series of online e-learning business, finance, and banking courses for the New York Institute of Finance; and a special "History of the Paperback" web site to celebrate Quality Paperback Book Club's 25th anniversary. My 50 States Fandex cards (Workman Publishing, 1998) have sold 700,000 copies (!). And I've published articles in a variety of newspapers and magazines--from The Wall Street Journal to Emmy magazine to the national Catholic news weekly Our Sunday Visitor.
My first book, Every Eye Beholds You: A World Treasury of Prayer (Harcourt Brace, 1999), was a Main Selection of both Book-of-the-Month Club and Quality Paperback Book Club. My book on patron saints, Saints for Every Occasion (Stampley Enterprises, 2001) has been translated into Spanish, Italian, and Polish.
I'm not a professional talking head, but I've been invited to discuss saints, the canonization process, and Catholic history on CNN, EWTN, Ave Maria Radio; and urban legends on the BBC, The Discovery Channel, Inside Edition, and approximately 75 radio stations.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ellen Fournier on March 16, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book is great, BUT... 4 years before it was published, the same book was published under a different title: This Saint's for You!: 300 Heavenly Allies Who Will Change Your Life (2007). It's the same book, folks--same author, same contents, just a different title and cover image. So you can save yourself about $7 by buying the earlier version. Unless the title and cover photo really make that much difference to you. I personally like the earlier cover better anyway. Just a little heads up for the budget-conscious Saint lover. :)

This is a WONDERFUL little book! It has a list of 300 or more saints--patron saints of anything you can imagine! There are 1-2 pages on each saint telling their story and how they became the patron saint of whatever. It's very entertaining and informative and written by an expert on saints. DEFINITELY recommend.
