Greetings! Thank you for visiting my site. My name is Bonnie McKernan, and I write novels that combine history, love and humor with three-dimensional, messy protagonists who wrestle with aspects of their beliefs. Life is beautiful and hard. My greatest hope is to take you on a journey, introduce the unexpected, prompt a few questions, and maybe have you utter “me too” along the way.

“History isn’t really about the past.
It’s about human nature.”
