Kathleen McGowan’s dynamic publishing career began with the debut of her novel, The Expected One, on the New York Times bestseller list in the summer of 2006.  Ms. McGowan’s unique style of “historical esoteric fiction” combines unprecedented research with inspired storytelling, causing publisher Simon and Schuster to declare that Kathleen had “created her own genre.” Her record-breaking first novel evolved into a fiction series with a devoted worldwide fan base, published in 50 languages and distributed in over 80 countries.

The Expected One, along with the sequels that make up The Magdalene Line series, is based on 20 years of research on four continents into the mysteries of ancient wisdom teachings, prophecy, mysticism and the supernatural with a focus on women and their long-forgotten role in the development of global spirituality.  During her time abroad, Ms. McGowan’s initial quest was to uncover the truth about the importance of women in the foundation of Christianity, with an emphasis on the story of Mary Magdalene and her descendants.  Her search started with traditional academic research, but ultimately took her deep into international folklore, mythology and the mystical traditions in Europe and the Middle East.

It was through viewing history as a mosaic made up of all of these elements – traditional research, culture, art and architecture, oral traditions – that Kathleen began to recreate the stories of history in the rich and emotional way that are the hallmark of her writing.  Her passion for legends that speak to the human spirit has earned her the devoted global fan base that made her a bestseller worldwide.  Her second novel, “The Book of Love”, about the secret lost gospel of Jesus and its applications to sacred sexuality, has become a cult classic.

Kathleen McGowan’s first non-fiction work, The Source of Miracles, is a handbook about prayer and spiritual practice which has was chosen by Oprah’s book editor as a holiday gift selection in 2009.  It continues to impact and change lives around the world.

Kathleen McGowan is a regular contributor to the History Channel, appearing on the hit series Ancient Aliens as an on-air and content contributor with an emphasis on ancient mystery teachings for multiple seasons; she is shooting Season Six as this goes to press in the Fall of 2013.  Kathleen has also been featured in the new (Fall 2013) series   “Bible Secrets Revealed” with Elaine Pagels, James Tabor and Bart Ehrman.

Kathleen has been interviewed frequently on network and international television, including segments with CNN, Fox News and the BBC; Diane Sawyer did a feature profile and interview with Kathleen for Good Morning America and she has been interviewed by Glenn Beck and UK superstars Richard and Judy.   Kathleen appears on radio programs worldwide and has been profiled in hundreds of publications, including The New York Times, USA Today (front page), The Sunday Independent and The Guardian.   A dynamic teacher and lecturer, she is a much sought after guest at international conferences on spirituality and women’s issues.

Kathleen has been a guest contributor to some of the most influential print and web publications in the world, including The Washington Post and The Huffington Post.   A third generation native of Hollywood, Kathleen is as comfortable in the world of filmed entertainment as she is in publishing, and has worked for two major film studios and optioned several feature film screenplays.  The rights to her novels have been optioned for feature film and television development.

In January of 2010, Kathleen teamed up with her husband, bestseller and investigative journalist Philip Coppens, to create a weekly radio show which they co-hosted on BBS Radio, “The Spirit Revolution.”  The show had a very successful run, garnering an international audience, until the sudden passing of Philip Coppens in December of 2012.

Kathleen is a dedicated activist, and commits a portion of her time and royalties to causes that protect women and children from the horrors of human trafficking and sexual slavery.  She has teamed with The Emancipation Network and Made by Survivors to fund and participate in programs which provide shelter and safety for victims of abuse, and raise awareness of this global epidemic.

Kathleen McGowan shares her time with her three sons between their homes in Los Angeles, Scotland and France.

The Expected One


Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the rocky foothills of the French Pyrenees, a gospel that contained her own version of the events and characters of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could be uncovered only by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of l’attendue — The Expected One.

When journalist Maureen Paschal begins the research for a new book, she has no idea that she is stepping into an ancient mystery so secret, so revolutionary, that thousands of people have killed and died for it. She becomes deeply immersed in the mystical cultures of southwest France as the eerie prophecy of The Expected One casts a shadow over her life and work and a long-buried family secret comes to light. Ultimately she, and the reader, come face-to-face with Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalene, John the Baptist, Judas, and Salome in the pages of a deeply moving and powerful new gospel, the life of Jesus as told by Mary Magdalene.
