A lifetime spent in rural Pennsylvania, where I still live, and my own Pennsylvania Dutch roots, led me to write about the Amish and their rich heritage in my current fiction series. Writing is my childhood dream come true – most little girls read their first Nancy Drew mystery and want to be Nancy. I read my first one and wanted to be the person who created that story!
My fifty-second book will be coming out soon, with another seven books scheduled to be released over the next two years. People sometimes ask me when I’m going to retire, but I’m too busy writing to think about it. Luckily my husband doesn’t mind fixing his own supper when a deadline looms.
My husband and I live in an 1860s-era farmhouse in a lovely Pennsylvania valley. When I’m not writing, my husband and I enjoy travelling, gardening, and spending time with our six beautiful grandchildren. If you want to make me happy, just ask me to show you picture of my grandkids!
