“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.

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?

I started crafting this post to tell you about my new book I’ll Be Yours. So I will tell you about it: it’s a YA, it’s hopefully funny, it’s about a nerd girl’s first love, it’s about American football, and it’s about broken people trying to put it all back together again when nothing can truly be the same.
