Publishers Weekly Bestselling Author
After Virginia's oldest son left for college and her youngest son began high school, she finally had time to pursue her dream of writing novels. Virginia dusted off the keyboard she once used as a magazine editor and journalist to create a world that combines her love of romance, history, and Plain living.
Virginia's fiction career began with the Amish New World series, which takes readers on a journey into the 18th century Pennsylvania wilderness and the pioneering days of the first American Amish. Each carefully researched novel brings a bygone era to life and connects readers to this forgotten time by weaving familiar Amish romances into an historic frontier setting.
Currently, Virginia is writing the Bluebird Hills series for Harlequin Love Inspired. These uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope take place in a fictional Amish community set in modern day Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Virginia's favorite pastimes include wandering Lancaster County's Amish country and meeting new people who inspire her stories. When she's not writing, Virginia enjoys painting, crocheting, and taking long walks in the woods.
