Jana Smith writes end-time Christian fiction with a hint of romance for women of all ages. She hopes her books inspire her readers to grow their faith, to believe they are special with a divine purpose, and that there is hope for the future. Jana has had stories rumbling around in her head from her earliest memory. Stories that were first ignited by her grandmother’s bedtime tales and later nurtured by her active imagination. Her love of God’s word and interest in Biblical End times theology has led her to write a series of fictional stories dealing with this subject. Jana worked in medical research and has a BSc and a Master’s degree. Now, she focuses much of her time on writing, but when not writing, she is an avid amateur photographer and loves to knit for her children and grandchildren, who bring her great joy. Jana lives with her husband in South-Western Ontario, in the home her father built. It is a place of peace and serenity, a place of reflection and contemplation. A place where stories are born and released to a life of their own.
Emma is remarkable, yet, she's been taught to hide who she is and her gifts. Gifts that are from God, yet she believes them to be a curse.

Can she trust those around her to help and protect her, or will they use her, just as her Granny told her?
And now that her gift has been revealed, will the foreseen destiny come true, and will she be responsible for the deaths of hundreds if not thousands?
Can she find the path God set out for her?

Every girl dreams of being special or even extraordinary. The special one’s dream of being ordinary.

However, life’s circumstances forced her to reject her gifts and bury the truth of their value and purpose. Life forced her to be ordinary… until it didn’t.
