Mandy Jacob is the Author of Joseph’s Coat. She is also the author of David’s Pebble, A Vessel without a Passage, The Glorious Staff, and The Cursed Tree.
Mandy was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. Much of her life was spent living in different countries in Europe and finally, she and her husband settled in Thousand Oaks, California. Her biggest achievement was not graduating Magna Cum Laude with four different degrees, nor working for Investment Banks, nor starting her own business at 27. Instead, she openly recognizes her claim to fame to be marrying a Swede and homeschooling three rambunctious boys.
Mandy’s relationship with her Savior has been anything but lackluster. She contributes the entire inspiration of this series to Him.
