Thanks for stopping by my official webpage.  Summer is nearly over and we finally received some much needed rain in Texas. I appreciate the fact that you’re here. Browse around a bit, leave a comment if you’d like, and if you have a question, drop me a line via the Connect/Contact button at the top of this page!

I’m so excited to share my good news with you. I recently signed a 6 book contract with Harlequin/Love Inspired! (Yes, I celebrated with ice cream.) Now there will be a total of 9 books in the Indiana Amish Bride series. I’m thrilled. I think there’s an endless supply of stories to write–especially about love, family, and the ever-present grace of God.

So thank you, to everyone who purchased a copy of A Widow’s Hope. Copies should remain in stores through August when they’ll be pulled to make room for September releases. You can, of course, still purchase copies at your local on-line retailer as well as Harlequin. If you click here and scan to the bottom, you’ll see “Buy from other retailers.” That should take you to your fav shopping place.

I also have a few autographed copies in my on-line store, VC Boutique for readers. I’ve paired books with handmade items, and the shipping is always free. For a limited time, use coupon code Back2School20 for 20% off your order.

And if you’d like to read a few chapters before purchasing A Widow’s Hope, you can do so here. Thanks again for stopping by. As our children and grandchildren return to school, I pray God’s grace and peace for all.

Amish fiction, Love Inspired Books Comments: 22

Some of you may have seen my announcement on Facebook that I’ve signed a contract with Harlequin/Love Inspired for 6 additional books in my Indiana Amish Brides series. I’m beyond excited and grateful. So today, I thought I’d share with you a peek into what’s Coming Soon

The following are all working titles and subject to change!

  • Book 3 – Amish Matchmaker
  • Book 4 – Her Amish Cowboy
  • Book 5 – His Second Chance
  • Book 6 – For Richer or Poorer
  • Book 7 – Her Secret Child
  • Book 8 – Amish Blessings
  • Book 9 – Trouble Times Two

All are Amish romances that focus on faith, family, and God’s grace in our lives. They’ll release over the next 4 years. I want to thank each of you. The fact that you read quality Christian fiction helps publishers choose to promote that type of fiction. We couldn’t do it without you!

Comment below with the first Amish book you remember reading, and I’ll draw one winner to receive an earlier release from my book closet. Our winner from the last post was Pamela Bain, who I’ve already been in contact with. (If your name is Pamela and you didn’t receive an email from me, it was a different Pamela.)
