Descendant of Jesus to Write a Book. Hmmmm.

As amazing at it seems, (please soak in the sarcasm), A direct descendant of Jesus and Mary Magdalene is writing a book.

An author is about to claim that she is the living embodiment of the Holy Grail, a direct descendant of the physical union between Mary Magdalene and Jesus Christ. She’s American, she’s 43, and she means it – every word.

Even though it seems her claim comes straight from the world of fictional make-believe, Kathleen McGowan, a married mother of three, is about to tell her story in a “partly autobiographical” novel that hopes to trade directly on the vast worldwide audience captured by Dan Brown. It promises to light almost as many fires of controversy as Brown’s novel itself.

For, however outlandish Ms McGowan’s claims, they are being taken seriously by one of the world’s most respected publishing houses. Simon & Schuster is publishing her book and ploughing a marketing budget of more than a quarter of a million dollars into promoting it. It has already invested a seven-figure sum in the rights to her book, The Expected One. “I certainly expect there will be a backlash,” said Ms McGowan. “But I have the support of my family and friends and that’s what I draw from.”
