Middle School Student Pens Historical Novel

Oaks Christian Online School celebrates the release of "Nowhere to Run (The Prophets of Yahweh)," penned by OCO student-author Kailian Blohm, under the pseudonym Jensina Wilson. The historical novel is her debut novel and the first in a series, telling the story of Jonah, a young, reluctant prophet.

Blohm, a middle school student at Oaks Christian Online School (OCO), notes that she found inspiration for her novel in Jonah because "his journey of fleeing the Lord and then God bringing him back makes him not only easy to relate to, but also comparable to Israel. These similarities paint a beautiful picture of God's grace, forgiveness, and unconditional love."

"Ms. Blohm's accomplishment as a published author speaks to the level of talent within the Oaks Christian Online School, and we couldn't be more proud of her," said Head of School Rob Black.

The author also credits the faculty and students at OCO for their encouragement and enthusiasm during the writing process.

Blohm, a middle school student, wrote under the pseudonym Jensina Wilson. In Hebrew, Jensina means "God has blessed", and Wilson is the surname of her great grandmother, an English major and lover of poetry and writing.

"Nowhere to Run (The Prophets of Yahweh)" is available for purchase on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle format.
