Author Biography

Award winning author, speaker and producer Jenny L. Cote developed an early passion for God, history and young people, and beautifully blends these passions together in her two fantasy fiction series, The Amazing Tales of Max and Liz® and Epic Order of the Seven®. Likened to C.S. Lewis by book reviewers and bloggers, Jenny L. Cote opens up the world of creative writing for students of all ages and reading levels through fun, highly interactive workshops. Jenny has appeared to over 30,000 students at lower, middle, high school and universities in the US and abroad. Jenny’s passion for research has taken her to London (with unprecedented access to Handel House Museum to write in Handel’s composing room), Oxford (to stay in the home of C.S. Lewis, ‘the Kilns’, and interview Lewis’ secretary, Walter Hooper), Ireland, Paris, Normandy, Rome, Israel, and Egypt. Her books are available online and in stores around the world, as well as in multiple e-book formats (Kindle, Nook, etc.). Jenny holds two marketing degrees from the University of Georgia and Georgia State University. She lives in Roswell, Georgia, with family.
The Amazing Tales of Max and Liz® is a two-book prequel series that begins the adventures of brave Scottie dog Max and brilliant French cat Liz. Book One: The Ark, the Reed, and the Fire Cloud introduces Max and Liz, who meet on the way to the Ark and foil a plot by a stowaway who is out to kill Noah and stop his mission. Book Two: The Dreamer, the Schemer, and the Robe brings Max, Liz, and friends to work behind the scenes in the life of Joseph in the land of Egypt. The Epic Order of the Seven® series picks up where the Max and Liz series left off. Book One: The Prophet, the Shepherd, and the Star gives Max, Liz, and the gang their most important mission yet: preparing for the birth of the promised Messiah. Their seven-hundred–year mission takes them to the lives of Isaiah, Daniel, and those in the Christmas story. Book Two: The Roman, the Twelve, and the King unfolds the childhood, ministry and passion of Jesus Christ with a twist – his story is told within the story of George F. Handel composing Messiah. Book Three: The Wind, the Road, and the Way covers Acts 1-18 and Paul’s first two missionary journeys. Book Four: The Fire, the Revelation, and the Fall concludes the story of Acts and shows the birth of the church despite impossible odds against persecution by the Roman Empire. Future books will feature Patrick Henry in a two-book series The Voice, the Revolution, and the Marquis (2016), and The Thunder, the Sword, and the Jewel (2017), as well as C.S. Lewis in The Professor, the War, and the Muse (2019).
Beyond books, Jenny’s series is in pre-production for an animated series, feature film adaptation, school curriculum and VBS program development. Learn more about Jenny, her books and more at www.epicorderoftheseven.com.

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

First of all I would like to comment on the cover of the novel. The Fire, the Revelation and the Fall has such an attractive cover that I actually took the novel without reading its blurb. I never do that, ever. I never really believed when people said a cover can tell a lot about the book. Jenny L. Cote proved them all right. I loved the vivid colors of the cover and the dynamic battle scene in the distance was so intriguing that I could not help but read it.

I usually shy away from novels that are part of a series I am not familiar with because they tend to confuse me. This novel did nothing of the sort. I understood everything that was going in Paul’s life and his third mission. The mission to complete the New Testament is not easy, especially when Paul’s life is in danger, but his faith and courage guides him through every obstacle, even though he is arrested and might be executed. It is a wonderful way to show Christian history.

I really loved the description of Rome. You can almost smell the air, the dust, and taste the water. The descriptions are so dynamic and vivid that you can actually imagine the scenes with crystal clarity in your mind. Imperial Rome is so majestic and fascinating, it really showed the amount of research Jenny L. Cote did in order to achieve this level of perfection. It felt hyper-real and so consuming. I love a book that makes me forget where I am. This novel just makes you read, read and read. Kudos for the job well done!
