The most interesting fact I’ve learned so far about the Amish? While I was in Lancaster County, I happened upon an occupied eagle’s nest. It was as big as a Volkswagen! Each evening, I went back to watch the eagle parents feed their hungry eaglets. The Amish I have met are dedicated “birders.” They have such a respect for God’s creation—so I try to add a new nature twist in each book. It’s fun for me to learn, too.
What’s the most interesting fact you’ve learned about the Amish, either from reading fiction about the Amish or during research you might have done?
