Welcome to my site. I’m delighted you’ve decided to drop in. It's a privilege to share a few minutes with you.

Just a reminder to stop by www.AmishReader.com to get the latest info about some of the titles Harvest House is rolling out. 

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love books. I love reading them and writing them, especially fiction. There's something about a story that touches the heart as it informs the mind. 

When I pack for vacation, I pack my books first, then clothes and food. The idea of being left with nothing to read is about the worst thing I can imagine.

When I write, I write for people like me, regular people, readers who enjoy good writing and want to have a good time reading. Though I write about things like unwed pregnancies, spousal abuse and homosexuality, these issues are so integrated into my stories--and balanced by plenty of suspense, mystery, humor and romance--that readers do not feel lectured to or preached at. Or so they tell me. 

Occasionally I also write nonfiction. My next nonfiction release is A Widow's Journey, a deeply personal look at life, grief, and hope from my experience as a widow. I hope the reflections in this book will be an encouragement to others facing the loss of a spouse.

While you're here, I hope you'll also take the time to enjoy some of the resources I have for you on my For Readers page. For those interested in a writing career, I've included some helpful tips in the For Writers section.  

And before you go, I'd love to hear from you.  Send me a note through my Contact page, and let's stay in touch.
