Author Biography

Sara Jane Jacobs writes inspirational romance. Her summer vacations in her father's hometown of Franklin, North Carolina, were the inspiration behind her first novel, Season of Hope. A few of the adventures of her characters on the fictitious Nathan's Mountain outside of Bryson City give us a glimpse into some of her cherished childhood memories. While Jane loves living in Florida with its abundant sunshine and sugar-white sand beaches, the Great Smoky Mountains hold a special place in her heart. She's a mom to two, Nonna to five, and shares her home with a family of felines.
