About The Author
Country girl, author, homesteader and anything simple living is what I love! I have a passion for writing about the simpler side of life, much like the life I lived growing up in rural Pennsylvania.
My life has always been intertwined with the Amish culture, and it’s only fitting that I have a genuine passion for their simplicity, sense of community and God-centered life.
Growing up in Northwest Pennsylvania I spent my childhood immersed deep in Amish Country. The clip-clop of horse and buggies woke me each morning as Amish men drove past my childhood home on their way to work. As a young woman, I was traumatized by an Amish murder that involved my family and changed my life forever. (If you want to read about it, please read Crimson Stain by Jim Fisher and take note that Jake, who was an essential part of that true story, was my uncle.)
Even though we currently live in South Carolina, our travels take us through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin’s Amish Country every year. During those stops, I research the communities we visit, and I pride myself on writing Amish fiction that truly represents the Amish culture. I am very fortunate to have made friends in these communities, and I value the information they share with me and want nothing more than to share it as accurately as possible.
