Bodie Thoene, has a Ph.D. in creative writing, & with Brock Thoene, is the author of thirty-three novels that include the best-selling series "The Zion Chronicles" & "The Zion Covenant." Together they have won eight Evangelical Christian Publishers Gold Medallion awards. The Thoenes live in Nevada & London, England. (Publisher Provided) With more than two dozen novels carrying the byline of Bodie Theone or Brock and Bodie Thoene (pronounced Tay-nee), with more than six million copies in print, and with eight Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Gold Medallion awards, for over a decade this husband-and-wife writing team has captivated the hearts and illuminated the minds of their enthusiastic readers. The Thoenes have earned Ph.D.'s in creative writing and in history. Bodie's storytelling gifts are supported by Brock's careful research and historical perspective. The resulting novels both inspire and educate, broadening readers' awareness of understanding important slices of history. Their critically acclaimed collaborations will stand as the benchmark in their category for years to come. The Zion Covenant series comprises six novels covering events in Europe leading up to World War II; the five books in The Zion Chronicles describe the events surrounding Israel's statehood in 1948; the three books of The Shiloh Legacy provide an American perspective on the war. The Thoenes made their home in Glenbrook, Nevada, but traveled frequently as they researched historical and geographical settings for their novels. They had three grown children and enjoyed grandparenting. (Bowker Author Biography)
