More About Bodie Thoene & Brock Thoene
BODIE AND BROCK THOENE (pronounced Tay-nee) have written over 65 works of historical fiction. Over thirty-five million of these best-selling novels are in print. Eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirms what millions of readers have already discovered—the Thoenes are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers’ minds and hearts.
Bodie began her writing career as a teen journalist for her local newspaper. Eventually her byline appeared in prestigious periodicals such as U.S. News and World Report, The American West, and The Saturday Evening Post. She also worked for John Wayne’s Batjac Productions (she’s best known as author of The Fall Guy) and ABC Circle Films as a writer and researcher. John Wayne described her as “a writer with talent that captures the people and the times!” She has degrees in journalism and communications.
Brock has often been described by Bodie as “an essential half of this writing team.” With degrees in both history and education, Brock has, in his role as researcher and story-line consultant, added the vital dimension of historical accuracy. Due to such careful research, The Zion Covenant and The Zion Chronicles series are recognized by the American Library Association, as well as Zionist libraries around the world, as classic historical novels and are used to teach history in college classrooms.
Bodie and Brock have four grown children—Rachel, Jake, Luke, and Ellie—and eight grandchildren. Their sons, Jake and Luke, are carrying on the Thoene family talent as the next generation of writers, and Luke produces the Thoene audiobooks.
Bodie and Brock divide their time between London, Hawaii, Central California, and Nevada.

Reviews - What do customers think about Vienna Prelude (Zion Covenant V1)?
Bodie Thoene is awesome Feb 10, 2007
Bodie is an excellent writer. She makes the past come alive; she makes history have heart and soul, she gives facts and events faces, names and personalities. She has the ability to transport me in time and I love traveling with her.
Amazing! Sep 21, 2005
I just purchased this series because after 10 years, 3 more books have been added to the series. So I just read Vienna Prelude again for probably the 4th time. It is as great as it was the 1st time. The story is beautiful, you fall in love with the characters. You really have to read the Zion Chronicles and the Zion Legacy which continues the saga!
What a great book!! Aug 2, 2005
What a great author!! I couldn't put this book down and then read all the other ones in the series. It really brings the realities of pre-WWII to life. The characters are extremely well-developed and you can't wait for the next book so you can see what they're up to. Don't miss reading this great book and great series.
Way Better Than 5 Stars Nov 5, 2003
This is the best book I've ever read! You actually do feel what the characters feel. You will not be able to put this book down! It is such a wonderfully moving book.
Don't get this (North Star) audio version Nov 27, 2002
Luckily I took this one out from the library. The narrator is HORRIBLE! It seems to me that someone who is going to read aloud a book set in another country would at least find out how to pronounce the place names (he didn't), but this guy couldn't even pronounce English! And when I got to the place where they were performing an oratorio (pronounced to rhyme with Horatio) I really flipped. The story was interesting, but the performance was unacceptable. Don't waste your money!
