Work in progress…..

I’m writing and trying to get a new series launched. It takes a lot of thought and mental planning before I actually start putting the words into my computer. But I’m well into it now., and I’m very excited to be setting a story in a very unique area in Indiana. Stay tuned for more to come!

Parker McIntyre is late evacuating Galveston Island prior to a hurricane, despite advisement from local Texas authorities. When Parker becomes trapped in rising floodwaters, he is going to drown if help doesn’t arrive soon. Fearing death and questioning his faith, he thinks about the young son he’ll be leaving behind.

Alexandria Hanson is on her way off the island to escape the immediate storm threat, but she spots a person trapped in the water. Alex—as she’s called by friends and family— isn’t adventuresome by nature. Helping the man is going to require great personal risk, but she can’t leave him to die.

As Alex joins Parker in the murky Gulf waters, a dangerous situation becomes even more serious as they wait to be rescued. With only each other to lean on, they attempt to quell their fears by praying together and sharing stories.

If Parker and Alex leave the island alive, will they have a chance to explore their feelings during the holiday season? Or will the opportunity be lost forever?

Look Inside

The Amish of Indiana

Amish of Indiana


People often ask me where I get my story ideas. They come to me in different ways, but the source is always the same: God, of course.

I’m starting a new Amish series, and I’m super excited to be venturing into new territory—Indiana. Mum’s the word on the actual setting, but I can tell you that I visited some very unique and authentic Amish communities. I interviewed several people who I met through folks I already know in Indiana.

As you know, the Plain People don’t like to have their pictures taken, but they were gracious enough to let me take photos in their homes and surrounding areas. Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite for my new series…



Since I’ve been back from that research trip, I’ve been getting to know my characters (meeting them in my head), setting the stage for the story, and entire scenes are playing out in my mind. This is what happens when I start a new project. But something has been missing—the message.

What does God want me to tell readers? Why will a reader be walking down the aisle of a bookstore and reach for my book, even though they’ve never read an Amish book? I believe God leads readers to the books for a reason—the message.

Several days ago, I was randomly looking at things on the Internet and a link popped up. I don’t ever remember subscribing to that certain YouTube channel. But I saw the message for my book with the type of clarity only God can provide.

I’m so excited about this new series. It doesn’t even have a name yet. It will be set in an Amish community I’ve never written about. I can’t be sure, but I don’t think any Amish authors have written about this place. It’s hard not to get burnt out when you’ve written as many Amish stories as I have—pushing 40 now. But I am VERY excited about this new series. There will be a lot more to come about this. I thank God for gifting me with the message He wants me to share.

Wishing you all a blessed day! 🙂
