Jodi Taylor is, and always has been, a history nut. Her Chronicles of St. Mary's, a wild mix of history, adventure, comedy, romance, tragedy, and anything else the author could think of, began as a self-published book entitled Just One Damned Thing After Another. It's now a bestselling, wildly addictive series.
