Greetings …


and welcome to my official webpage. It’s wunderbar to see you here.


March was a busy month in our household with the release of two books – An Amish Garden and Murder Simply Brewed

I just received word that Murder Simply Brewed made it onto Bookscans Top 50 Christian books last week, and An Amish Garden made #5 on the ECPA monthly list. Thank you! The response to this story has been humbling, and I want to send a big shout-out to everyone who has written to me. I thought I’d share some of those letters with you.

“Finished Murder Simply Brewed, LOVED IT :) just when you think you have it figured out what’s going to happen next, there is another surprise! ~Rochelle

I was captured by the story as I wanted to find out what really happened ~Zac

Having lived in Kalamazoo and with family in Three Rivers, Michigan, both only a short distance north of Middlebury, I am well-acquainted with the town, its markets, restaurants and the Amish community that surrounds it. Therefore this book held some special charm for me. ~Robert

I hope you’ll pick up your copy today. After  you do, please send me an email and let me know what you think!



p.s. - my April special is A Wedding for Julia–the 3rd book in my Pebble Creek series. These books do NOT have to be read in order as they are separate stories. I’ll be happy to include some nice bookmarks to go with your order. In order to receive the special price of $10  click here and use the BUY NOW box on the left hand side of the page.

God’s Promises

Gardening, inspiration Comments: 6

photoMid-week Inspiration: Rain, Wildflowers and God’s Promises

This week I wanted to share with you a picture from my back yard. I love this vine which I believe is a trumpet vine. The arbor is made from Cedar–my husband cut down a few of the smaller cedars and built it last year. But what amazes me is that the trumpet vine blooms, in spite of our drought which has been going on for several years now.

Isn’t that amazing? Hummingbirds come and hover around the blooms, drawing sustenance. Bees buzz in and out of the blossoms. The leaves provide shade. In the midst of drought, we have all of these blessings.

Which brings me to Deuteronomy 28:12

The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands.


Isn’t that a lovely promise? Many of us in Texas are draw encouragement from those words. What promise from God’s word helps you through difficult times? Use the leave-a-reply at the top of this post and encourage someone else today.
