Welcome to my official webpage. We’re deep in the heart of summer here and Texas, which means it’s a good time for reading! Murder Freshly Baked is now available! WooHoo! I’m thrilled with this exciting conclusion to my Amish Village Mystery series.
The selflessness of the characters is refreshing and heartfelt, while the mystery keeps readers guessing. Overall this is a great balance of intrigue and comfort.” ~RT
Chapman’s series offers a satisfying blend of diverse characters, intriguing mystery, Amish life, and nonintrusive inspirational messages. This well-conceived series has definite crossover appeal to fans of Debbie Macomber’s Blossom Street books. ~Booklist
Amish Artisan Village owner Amber Wright and storekeeper Hannah Troyer are on the trail of a poetic pie poisoner in the third installment (after Murder Tightly Knit) of this popular series. Meanwhile, a handsome Englisher is pursuing the Amish girls in Middlebury, IN, and breaking hearts along the way. ~Library Journal
This little mystery has a lot of surprises–love scorned, a veteran recovering from PTSD, and friendships that see the characters through tough times. Mostly it is a story that focuses on God’s grace in our daily lives. I hope you’ll give it a try.

Did you finish your June UFO? I’ve pinned mine to my 2015 UFO Challenge Board. Actually I did several. This little pillow to your right was a real hoot. I also finished my first twin sized and I sent it in to be quilted. I’ve never had anything long-arm quilted, and I can’t wait to see it. I also did a little Texas lap quilt, which is not technically FINISHED, as I still need to add the binding. But I plan on doing that tonight while we watch baseball.
When the days are this warm, I craft a lot. It’s so hot in Texas that we’re only outside early in the morning and late in the evening. That leaves plenty of time for crafting and reading.
Which reminds me, I learned of a great way to be informed about an author’s “sale” books. Have you heard of the site Book Gorilla? You put in your email, then select what types of books you like to read, and you can even FOLLOW authors. When you follow me, you will receive notices of any books on sale. That’s pretty cool!
Now back to those UFO projects. If you haven’t started with us, this is a great time. You can finish 6 projects by the end of the year. If you have been following along, I hope you’re enjoying it and please do go post your pictures to my pinterest page. Send me an email if you’d like me to add your name to people who can pin on the board.(If you’re just beginning number 1-12 on a sheet of paper. Mark out 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 12. On the open numbers list projects you’d like to finish. (Any kind it doesn’t have to be quilting). — Our number for July is #1.
