I never dreamed I’d write Amish books but one day while I was walking on the beach with my husband, an idea came into my head and I knew I wanted to write Their Amish Reunion. I sent the idea to my editors and they all liked it, so I got to work. That book came out in 2018.
But it didn’t stop there. They offered me a multi-book contract and my second Amish story Her Amish Child, will be out in February 2019. I’m working on a third—a suspense—and two more are planned.
People often ask me to I like writing these stories? I do. I didn’t jump on the bandwagon because Amish fiction is so popular, although I’m sure that’s why I got a great contract. This story was one that I would have written with or without a publisher. But there is something very settling and peaceful about writing of a life that is simple and full of faith. These books have been a blessing to me. I don’t take that lightly at all. I believe this is why Amish fiction is so popular. These books show us a structured, disciplined way of life that keeps faith and forgiveness front and center. And that is a blessing to all of us!
I hope you’ll read Their Amish Reunion and Her Amish Child. They are both very dear to my heart.
