Are you a re-reader? Why, or why not? And if you are, what are some of the books you have read over and over?

When I was a …

Are you a re-reader? Why, or why not? And if you are, what are some of the books you have read over and over?

Absolutely! In fact, I just finished a run of re-reading every Lori Benton book…even her latest, which is just releasing this month. I scored an early copy from her super kind publicist and read it back in January and have already read it a second time. I’ve reread Christy by Catherine Marshall about a million times.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR. BECAUSE YOU JUST MIGHT GET IT.

Zara Ruiz is a normal California girl on the verge of graduating from high school and thinking about her dawning future. But when dusk brings a shattering loss—and she discovers a priceless object in the shallows of a tide pool—she is thrust a hundred-and-eighty years into the past.

“What if?”

Isn’t that where every idea starts? It’s certainly what keeps me writing.

When I first proposed writing Amish historical novels, the idea was three books. The Amish Turns of Time series would include three novels set in the 1910s exploring three different issues in Amish history. Wonderful Lonesome, Meek and Mild, and Brightest and Best came to be. The Amish Turns of Time series was complete. Ah. A sigh of satisfaction.
