The Story Behind the Story

On Saturday, November 21st, 2-4 pm, I’m going to be part of an author event at The Door Christian bookstore in San Carlos, California. The five authors are: Kristin Billerbeck, Susanna Foth Aughtmon, Debbie Alsdorf, Sarah Sundin, and myself. Some fiction, some non-fiction.

The five of us have never met! Well, other than via Facebook…but we share a connection to a fantastic publishing house: Revell. We are each going to share “the story behind the story.” In other words, how did we break into publishing?

The Door is one of those places that you can’t help but get excited about. Kathy Dunn, the manager, has created a “happenin’ place” complete with a living room set-up and coffee bar. And would you believe that The Door is the last Christian bookstore on the San Francisco peninsula? We need to support our Christian bookstores!

So if you live in the Bay Area, please try to join us! And bring your most writerly friends.

About Suzanne

Suzanne Woods Fisher writes bestselling, award winning fiction and non-fiction books about the Old Order Amish for Revell Books. Her interest in the Plain People began with her Old Order German Baptist grandfather, raised in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne's app, Amish Wisdom, delivers a daily Amish proverb to your phone or iPad. She writes a bi-monthly column for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazine. She lives with her family in California and raises puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. To Suzanne's way of thinking, you can't take life too seriously when a puppy is running through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.
