The Da Vinci Descendant

Kathleen McGowan--a 43-year-old American mother of three who claims to be a direct descendent of the physical union between Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene--will publish her novel/autobiography with Simon & Schuster. S&S has paid her a seven-figure sum, sold the rights in more than 20 languages, and plans a 250,000 copy first print run.
