About this author

I live only a few miles from a flourishing Amish community and am blessed to count many Old Order Amish as friends. Love Finds You In Sugarcreek, Ohio is a natural outgrowth of my on-going fascination with these valiant, flawed people who struggle to live their lives according to their interpretation of the Bible. Once, when I apologized for asking so many questions while researching this book, an Amish father told me that I could ask anything I wanted. “Nothing is forbidden,” he said. He told me that he wanted my book to be accurate. I was thrilled when his family read it and gave me their enthusiastic nod of approval.

As my interest grew, my agent had suggested I write my next novel on the Amish culture. I began to visit the Amish community and spent time with the families and learned so much. Their lives are interesting, full of family, and very peaceful.(less)

The story behind that is I was on the set (in the basement of an Amish home) and it was that moment that i realized the book was going to be a movie. It was in that moment that it became real. The crew and cast were so fantastic and everyone did their job beautifully. I was able to to really sit and watch and enjoy. (less)

WOE_ISO_CoverI recently stepped outside my historical and Amish genres and did something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I wrote a real nail-biter of a romantic suspense. My heroine, Erin Ramsey, is a mild-mannered high school English teacher until her family comes under attack. Then she turns into a mama tiger ferociously trying to save her daughter’s life. There is also Cole, the damaged and very unexp...

“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”
Serena B. Miller

“When I say I will never leave you nor forsake you, I am not making up some white man's words that mean nothing, I am repeating holy, sacred words that are in that book. Those words have power. I want to teach you the power of those words. For me to ignore my Holy Scriptures and walk away from you, or to take a child from you as your father did your mother, would mean to me that I had lied to my God. I would accept death before I would leave you after making such a holy promise.”
Serena B. Miller, Under a Blackberry Moon

“[...] They taught us to never ever underestimate the power of chocolate on a female."
"Is that so?"
"If someone had waved a Hershey bar in front of Bonnie at the right time of the month, she'd have given up Clyde in a heartbeat.”
Serena B. Miller, Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Ohio
