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.

"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.

Mara Purl
 

Mara PurlI'm excited to welcome Mara Purl, author of The Milford-Haven Novels, to On the Bookcase. Milford-Haven is a fictitious town on California's Central Coast. Pre-9/11, housing is on the rise, the stock market is booming, and Milford-Haven is full of the upwardly mobile pouring out of Los Angeles in search of a fresh start or a weekend getaway. The novels are based on Purl's BBC Radio drama Milford-Haven U.S.A. 

The first in the Milford-Haven series, What the Heart Knows, features Miranda Jones. Artist Miranda begins to trust her heart enough to escape from her life of privilege and start over in Milford-Haven. Now that she's moved, deeper questions surface: What is her life purpose? What's missing?
