Janet Kramer began her career as an English and French teacher, but life has taken her into many fields, including politics – as a two-time candidate for the Minnesota House of Representatives.  A world traveler and a Francophile, Kramer’s personal experience in the Mary Magdalene cave in Provence inspired her to write this story.  The Sion Grail reflects her keen interest in research, religious history, and spirituality.  She began writing short stories, memoirs, and novels in the mid-1990s, and has previously published short fiction.  The author makes her home in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area
