ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I hold a BA and MA degree in English, and I am proud to be represented by Mary Sue Seymour, AAR. I have published over one hundred articles in Christian family magazines, and have received over two dozen awards from Romance Writers of America chapter groups. I am honored to be a member of Romance Writers of America, American Christian Fiction Writers, and Faith Hope and Love.
I live and teach in the Texas hill country with my husband, cats, and a rather large herd of deer. Our four children have flown the nest; however, we are fortunate that they all live close enough to visit.
I have always felt that my faith was at the very center of who and what I am, and I am thrilled beyond words to be able to now write about something that is so near to my heart. At various times I have served as a pianist, teacher, church secretary, and worship team member. While living in the Dallas area, I served as an adjunct professor of English Literature at Dallas Baptist University. When we moved to a small town in Central Texas, I continued teaching for a few years, but I now write full-time and I play the keyboard in our church’s praise band.
My grandfather was born in Albion, Pennsylvania, and I am currently researching whether I might have Amish roots.
ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of The Christmas Quilt, go HERE.
This was a sweet Amish book set during the Christmas season. Annie and Leah are sisters in law and pregnant at the same time. Leah is having twins and is due first. Annie starts a quilt for Leah and wants to finish it before the babies are born. Life has a way of interrupting though. Annie is busy helping her husband Samuel. Leah ends up having to go in the hospital. Annie and Leah end up making the quilt together. Along the way the author explores the relationships between the family members. The conclusion was satisfying. Recommended. :)
