Naomi Craig is an author of Biblical fiction, avid reader, and pastor’s wife. She loves reading the Bible and imagining how things were at the time. When she’s not serving in various areas at church or trying to stay on top of mountains of dishes, you’ll most likely find her enjoying a good book and a cup of coffee.  Naomi co-hosts #BehindTheStory, an author interview show on YouTube and your podcast platform of choice, and co-hosts Biblical Fiction Aficionados Facebook Group.

Naomi’s featured novella in Keeping Christmas Volume I is entitled The Weary World Rejoices.

The Weary World Rejoices (by Naomi Craig): Behind the elaborate furnishings of Herod the Great’s palace, conspiracy and distrust run rampant. Mysterious visitors from the east challenge everything Amal thinks he knows as palace scribe. Will his quest to uncover the Truth free him from the ornate shackles of palace life, or will he be the next victim of King Herod’s maniacal jealousy?
