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.

    I didn't care for the way she depicted her life as an Amish person. heard her speak in person last year.We have been friends with an Amish family in Lancaster County for 28 years. The stories she told aren't a true reflexion of the Amish life I've experienced all these years. We stay right in there home when we're there. It's all about family, church and community. We are blessed that they have welcomed us into there family. Attended all the weddings of the children. There to share in the joy of new grandchildren. One thing I found untrue with my Amish friends, they use sewing machines that are air and battery driven, not the old pedal one's that Saloma refered to. That is just ONE thing she reported that I disputed. Sorry, I didn't find her enlightening at all.

    I understand your perspective. I don't think Saloma's story represents all the Amish, but it is her story. Thank you for bringing out your side of the story, too.
