Kathleen McGowan’s journey to becoming a foremost expert in the field of women’s histories encompasses decades of research and global travel, as well as her own life’s initiations. She has spent nearly 30 years studying the legends of Mary Magdalene in France, and that of the women who have claimed her as their spiritual godmother for over 2000 years: queens, warriors, scholars, mystics, women who changed the world but have been unsung. As the New York Times and global best-selling author of “The Magdalene Line” trilogy, her books broke foreign language distribution records, appearing in 40+ languages, even while the content was controversial and ahead of its time.
Book 4 in the Magdalene Line Series, The Boleyn Heresy—Part 1: The Time Will Come is now available at Amazon HERE
