This is fun for me. At about the same time I finish the last part of "An Amish Home", I get to re-visit the first chapter of my first story, "An Amish Journey".
"Rest on Grace" is the conclusion of "An Amish Home". Over the course of writing this, the story seemed to find its own direction. Everything kept coming back to the little girl, Ruth. We each have our own story of faith. This story was no different in that respect. The father, Allan, had his faith tested repeatedly and each…Continue

Sometimes, we are faced with the inexplicable. Sometimes, things do not go as we planned.
That does not mean that there is not something better waiting on the other side.
In "An Amish Home Volume 7 – The Fall", one of those things happens.
Young Ruth and her brother venture off into the woods for some innocent and much needed play time. What happens next is almost a tragedy and Ruth receives an ominous message from the mysterious figure that some have called her guardian…Continue

"What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost." - Luke 15:4-6
And that is my sole inspiration for An Amish Home - Volume 3: The…Continue

See, that’s a misleading way to start. There are actually eleven of us and twelve stories. I’m talking about a group I fondly refer to as the Authors of One and our series, simply called One. The Authors of One consist of ten authors, plus me. Ten equals one. I think we have the math straight now.
In the synopsis, I call it “a spiritual anthology examining True-Life experiences of Authors and their Faith. As the series evolves expect to discover what it means to have faith, no matter…Continue

An Amish Home. That’s what Allan has now. He found his path and so much goodness came into his life. My new stories are set in Karsten Field about eight to ten years after An Amish Journey. Allan is happily married with two young children. His oldest daughter, Alice, even has a family of her own. Life is good.
That doesn’t mean they don’t face any challenges. Sometimes, when life is that good, we need reminders. An Amish Home – Attainable is one of those reminders.

What is your connection to the Amish?
I live ½ hour away from Smicksburg, PA, a large Old Order Amish settlement. I shop at their stores and we hired Amish men to help remodel our century old farmhouse. It’s been fifteen years of remodeling, (still not done…) so we got to know many men and their families. On their breaks, they love to talk and swap stories, and I always have 1001 questions, ranging from “Do you grow celery for weddings?”(They had no idea what I was talking about) to “Do…

I thought once I completed the story of Set Free that I would move on to something else. I discovered I was wrong. With An Amish Home, I really enjoy going back to Karsten Field. The first story is available for $0.99 at this link - http://goo.gl/oc82v
It is a lot of fun to see what Allan has become. Having two young children opens up so many possibilities. If you read my story for the series Mark Miller's One, then you know I had a personal…Continue

These are only my favorites. I would love to hear which ones are yours. It might inspire me (and sometimes, we all need inspiration).
For now, have a look at my new story, which you can get here for $0.99 -…Continue

That's right, Set Free: An Amish Journey has come to an end. Allan's story comes to its conclusion with Trestle Press's latest release - Volume 9 - Humbled.
As a bonus, Trestle has decided to include the short epilogue of Volume 10 with Volume 9 for free. What do you think about that? I think it's great!
In Humbled, Allan must face the consequences of his actions. What will come of his late evening conversation with the schoolteacher? The story culminates a year to the day…Continue
