More ACFW pics!

Apologies for the delayed posting, friends! Here are some more wonderful memories from ACFW – actually from before the conference began.

I think hugging her and hearing her squeal for joy just about made my year! Kara, too.

I hope you enjoy these pics, despite me …

It’s mistakes, and regrets like this that keep him from pursuing his long-burning interest in Gilly Priest, their pretty, petite pilot. Not only is she not interested in dating a teammate, but she’s also the preacher’s daughter. And while Reuben’s not the chiefest of sinners, he’s no saint. Reuben feels like a buffalo next to her and

If you haven’t read Ties That Bind, the award-winning, best-selling first book in the Amish of Summer Grove series, please avoid specific Q&A about the characters or storyline.

I grew up in Maryland. We lived in numerous counties, from a packed suburb of DC to the countryside where there wasn’t another home in sight.

I was inspired to write my first published novel by my childhood. While growing up in Maryland, I had a best friend who was an Amish-Mennonite. The moment I stepped inside her house, I could sense that there were a lot of differences …
