mollypictureTell us about yourself . . .

I’m married to my soulmate, Ed. I enjoy our time with our family and quiet time with the Lord. I love to read, swim, golf, and travel. Snow is on my list of bad words. I’m happiest when the sun is shining and I can see my toes!

Why do you write Amish historical stories?

I’ve visited Amish communities often throughout my life. Fascinated with their lifestyle, I couldn’t wait to write stories with Amish characters showing their faith and trust in God during hardships and joyous times in their lives. I like the historical time periods.

Tell us about your new release:

 

Ohio, 1899.  Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith’s strict rules—until her fiancé jilted her before their entire community. She’s never been away from home, but the bustling Englischer town of Massillon, Ohio, is a welcome unexpected refuge. Especially when she goes to work for Dr. Matt Carrington, who shares her passion for healing those in need. His outgoing spirit and gentle strength show Becca a surprising new world of choices—and irresistible love. But there is one formidable obstacle: Matt’s wealthy mother is determined her son will marry a society woman.

With her newfound resolve challenged, Becca decides that she and Matt must not be destined for each other after all. She accepts that she will have to forge a life alone—until a wrenching crisis and life-changing revelations teach her that true faith lies in all things, especially impossible second chances. . .

What have been some of the best moments of your career?

When my agent, Dawn Dowdle, called and said she wanted to represent me. Equally exciting was when she called again to say John Scognamiglio at Kensington wanted to contract with me for three books.

Being interviewed on your blog! You’re an author I respect and love to read your books!

What are your biggest distractions?

My husband, Ed or daughter, Misty or my friends say, “Let’s go out to eat!” or “Let’s go to a movie.” Oh yes, and let’s not forget, “Let’s go shopping!”

What is the role and importance of an agent?

Dawn Dowdle, Blue Ridge Literacy Agency, is my agent. She’s a talented editor and reviews all my material, reviews my contracts, funnels the payments, answers questions, provides an author profile on her website, alerts us to publishing news, conferences, etc. I’m so thankful for her. I would highly recommend pursuing an agent.
