"Why I Write Amish Fiction"The Survivor


Shelley Shepard Gray, author of The Survivor, explains why amish fiction is her choice genre!


Until we moved to southern Ohio almost twelve years ago, I had never seen a buggy. Actually, I had never thought much about the Amish. All that changed when my husband and I went on a Sunday drive just a few months after we moved here.

Author On the Bookcase: Susanna Kearsley

The Rose GardenSusanna Kearsley, author of The Rose Garden, tells us about what writing is like for her as a reader. Welcome to On the Bookcase, Susanna!

Fill a room with writers, and you’ll find we all work differently. There’s no “right” way to write. Just as a garden can have many paths that all meet at the same central fountain, we each have our own process for finding our way to the end of a book. Some like planning, and some work to music, while I work in silence and fly by the seat of my pants.
