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)

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)

Picture a hungry writer sitting in an unheated attic, wearing a ragged head scarf and moth-eaten sweater over shabby clothes. She’s blowing on her fingers, warming them just enough to dip the pen into the ink well again. Then she scribbles a final sentence “the end” on a page of cheap paper, lays it reverently […]

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

“[...] 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

“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.”
