WELCOME to my official webpage.

Summer has officially arrived  as we all continue to find a new normal. I want to thank you for taking a moment to stop by my page. I hope that something here will encourage and strengthen you. Click around and if you have a question or comment, I’d love to hear from you. You can drop me a line via the Connect/Contact button at the top of this page!

My summer looks like it will includes lots of writing. Up next for me is a proposal for my 8th Harlequin/Love Inspired book, then it’s on to my 2nd Amish cozy mystery in the Agatha Amish B&B series. If you haven’t checked out book one–Dead Wrong, you can do so here.

Lots of releases in the next few months:

  • Love Inspired has re-released my book, A Perfect Amish match. This will be a 2-in-1 with my friend, Dana R. Lynn. I love seeing our books together! (June 2020)
  • High Noon, the 4th novella in my Cyber Division series released on June 8th. This time Nora and Randall chase a terrorist through Zion National Park. Doesn’t that sound like a fun summer read?
  • Security Breach combines all 4 books of my Cyber Division novellas and will release in ebook and paperback on July 8th. Yes, my dear paperback friends. You can order this cyber series! And for those of you who enjoy ebook bundles, it will also be available in that format. The print book button isn’t available yet, but it will be before release day.
  • The Amish Christmas Secret is book 6 in my Indiana Amish Brides series. This book was a real hoot to write. You’ll get to meet Carl-the-bad-tempered-rooster who is a real rooster owned by my dear friend, Heather. I’m looking forward to sharing this story with you. (September 2020)
  • Love Inspired will also re-release my book, The Amish Christmas Matchmaker. This will be a 2-in-1 with the lovely Debby Giusti. I’m super excited to share a release with her. (October 2020)
  • An Amish Christmas Wedding: Four Stories will release on October 6th. I just love the cover of this book and enjoyed writing with old friends Amy Clipston, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Irvin.

All of my indie books remain priced at $4.99 or less. You can check them out on my Amazon page or through any ebook retailer. I’m committed to making my indie books available for everyone, so if you are an Apple, Kobo, or B&N reader please support those channels.

As we continue to face challenging times, my prayer is that the love, peace, and strength of Christ be yours.

COVID Hobbies

Author life, Contest, crafts Comments: 23

That’s a funny title. Right? It’s not like COVID is a hobby, but I do find myself spending more times on hobbies than in the past. Maybe it’s because my brain is tired, or maybe it’s because I need something that is a little more encouraging and optimistic than the evening news.

I have lots of hobbies. Maybe too many, if that’s possible. But I’d have to say my top 3 hobbies are the following:

Knitting. I’m sort of knitting like a crazy person. I’ll write 500 words, then go and knit a few rows. I’ve long been a “crafter,” and I rediscovered my love of knitting a few years ago.  Honestly, there’s just something very soothing about it. Isn’t this little dress cute? I don’t even have any grandchildren, but I’m sure I’ll find someone to gift it to.

Gardening. I also have thrown myself into more gardening this year. Now these sunflowers are just a fluke. They popped up, and we decided to leave them for the birds. But I also have squash, cucumbers, green beans, bell peppers and tomatoes.

It’s so much fun to go outside and pluck a few things for dinner. I didn’t have the time to really dedicate myself to gardening before quarantine, but now I look forward to spending a little time in the morning and a little time in the evening in my garden.

Reading. If you know me, you know I’m a big reader. Since I was pretty young, I’ve always toted home a stack of books from the library. I’m still doing it too! Recently we went camping along the Medina River in the Texas Hill Country, and you know I spent most of my time sitting and reading. lol. It’s peaceful though, and I love the way a book can take me away.

So what about you? Are you “hobbying” a little more with COVID? Leave me a comment below and you’ll be entered to win a box of books. They’ll be “back copies” which means books that have been previously released (earlier in the year or even in previous years). I’ll sign them generically, and if it’s something you already have you can gift it to a friend or library. Our winners from the last blog were Terri Schmidt, Kimberly Kiesey and Gerri Moore.  Ladies, you should receive an email from me or from my assistant, Kristy Kreymer–so check your email!



Announcements for this week


  • Security Breach will release in paperback and ebook next week. This is a compilation of all 4 of my cyber novellas. They’re good clean suspense stories with a light thread of faith in them. If you haven’t tried them, check this out! And I’ll be sending out the paperback link next week in my newsletter. For now, the ebook link to all vendors is here.
  • I just saw the first draft of my cover for Dead Broke, and I can’t wait to share it with you. This will be the second release in my Agatha’s Amish B&B cozy mystery series. The cover should be finalized in the next few days. It’s fun, fun, fun.
  • I have a Goodreads giveaway going on for Security Breach. It ends on July 7th, so if you’re a member of Goodreads, enter now! Of course you’re free to purchase a copy for a friend while you’re waiting to see if you win.
