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.

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)

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

“[...] 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.”
Serena B. Miller, Under a Blackberry Moon
