About the Author
Mary Jo Nickum, a Roman Catholic since birth, has always been fascinated by her namesake, Mary, the mother of Jesus. When she turned from technical writing to writing for children, researching and writing about the Blessed Virgin Mary became a reality. Her first book for children, Mom’s Story, a Child Learns about MS, is fictionalized nonfiction written for families from a child’s perspective. A Girl Named Mary is her first ‘tween historical novel. Mary Jo resides with her husband in Fountain Hills, Arizona. She has two grown sons.

Unlike the traditional lore about Mary, meek, modest, and humble, the author depicts a seemingly different character. In the short well written scenes, readers not only learn the physical hardships of the times, but the cultural battles of changing traditions thus painting an emerging side of Mary.
Mary Nickum pens a delightful interpretation introducing a girl coming of age. Readers meet a strong, brave, confident and even rebellious teenage girl preparing to take her place at the center of Christian history.
