Joanna’s first book is a spiritual travel adventure based on the Gnostic Gospels and is now in its second edition, re-titled Jerusalem Diary: Searching for the Tomb and House of Jesus. The book was a finalist in the Hay House Non-fiction Contest in 2012. It is an Amazon.com and The Book Depository bestselling travel guide to Jerusalem. Her interest in Mary Magdalene and spiritual archetypes of the feminine lead her to give talks around Australia on Mary Magdalene and the Gnostic Gospels.
