I was recently mentioned in a Globe and Mail article about Amish romance, and before the Corona Virus quarantine started, I got an email from local CBC reporter, Paige Parsons, who had read the article, asking if I’d be interested in being interviewed.
Well, I certainly was! 🙂 I just needed a day or two to get my hair trimmed (I was getting shaggy) and to get my bird babysat, because a parrot who is not the centre of attention tends to be a very noisy parrot… My parents were happy to oblige, and they took Pichu for the morning, where he tried to be the boss of their home for a few hours.
So the journalist, Paige Parsons, and her camera guy (whose name I don’t recall, but he was infinitely patient and very talented) came over to my home to do the interview. It was a lot of fun! They were both absolutely delightful, and it took about two hours to do the interview and get all the shots they needed.
I’m only a part of the story, so they’ll interview other people, too, once the quarantine is lifted, so this might take a little while… I can’t wait to see it once it’s aired!
I’ll be sure to post a video for you all to see.
I found the journalist and the cameraman to be very interesting! It’s neat to see other people’s jobs and how they got to where they are. Working for CBC is a real achievement here in Canada, so it was neat to be able to ask them some questions, too.
And there you have it–my interview, in which I hope I sound thoughtful and interesting. Fingers crossed! LOL!
And I made sure to talk about my upcoming release, THURSDAY’S BRIDE. I hope you’ll all pick up a copy when you see it in the stores starting March 31, 2020!

For a proper young Amish widow struggling to begin again, encountering her reckless first love will test her forgiveness, resolve—and heart . . .
Overwhelmed by grief and tending twin baby daughters, Rosmanda Lapp is without options. She still blames her brother-in-law, Levi, for her husband’s accidental death—but she and her aging in-laws need him to keep their farm going. Yet as Levi takes on his responsibilities with a new determination and steadiness, she can’t help but regret that she chose his serious-minded brother over him. For Levi is still very much the passionate man she loved—and Rosmanda now has even more reasons to keep him at arm’s length . . .
Levi can’t blame Rosmanda for staying clear of him. He has mistakes to make up for and must finally do right by his parents. Still, he never got over his brother stealing Rosmanda away. And he can’t deny the feelings that even now tempt them back to each other. And when a mistake from her past threatens her reputation, Levi will do whatever it takes to help her—and trust that faith and courage will at last help them claim a future together . . .
