About this author

Marta Perry is a Pennsylvania-based author of over 35 novels, many of them inspirational romances. She uses her rural Pennsylvania life and her Pennsylvania Dutch heritage in writing her books, especially in her Pleasant Valley Amish series for Berkley Books and her new Amish-set suspense series for HQN Books.

Marta and her husband live in a centuries-old farmhouse in a quiet central Pennsylvania valley. They have three grown children and six beautiful grandchildren, and when she's not busy writing her next book, she's usually trying to keep up with her gardening, baking for church events, or visiting those beautiful grandkids.

Marta Perry Hi, Janie,
I'm glad you're enjoying my books. Lost in Plain Sight is actually an e-novella, just a little extra between books. The third book is Danger in Plain Sight, coming out in June. And in July there's another novella in the series, which will be in book form in an Amish suspense anthology called Dark Crossings.

Best,
Marta


Janie  R. Thanks for adding me, Marta! I have so enjoyed reading your books! I am looking forward to reading your Amish Suspense series, by the way, is Lost in Plain Sight the #3 book in the series? I noticed it was only available in Nook.
