Hello there lovely reader.
So, you want to know more about me…
We’ll just start at the beginning.
My name is Rachel L Miller – and I write Amish fiction and contemporary Christian romance.
People say to write what you know… well, I can’t – and won’t do that.
A reformed reader of the type of books that make a person blush just looking at the cover, I know a lot more than I am willing to put between the pages of any book… even a diary.
Like many of us in this lost world, I slid from the path God intended for a time – and my experiences while there taught me that I want to spread God’s light and Hope and Love through this world that is stumbling in the dark.
I believe God has called me to write Amish fiction and Christian contemporary romance. That is the method through which I can spread His light… and His word!
“Readers of Amish fiction are looking not for racy stories, but for romances in which the trinity of modesty, chastity and fidelity reign. While the books often feature a female protagonist that falls in love with a man outside of her community, the relationship always remains sweetly romantic.” – Wall Street Journal article on why Amish romance novels are so hot.
It’s partially my mother’s fault. Way back when I was trying to fill the bookshelves up again… this time with good books (after clearing them of all the books I kinda wish now I had never even picked up) mom insisted that I read A Simple Amish Christmas by Vannetta Chapman – and thus began the obsession.
So… In early 2013, my mother introduced me to Amish fiction and it was love at first read!
After that I could not get my hands on enough books and mom gets a bit put out with me at times because I have completely run out of places to put them all… at least four times now. And… ironically enough, though I am completely obsessed with Amish fiction and though my name sounds Amish, and we dress very plain… live very plain… we are not Amish.
Since I am intrigued by the culture, in love with the wonderful people and it is a genre I approve of, Mom suggested that I try my hand at writing it.
Since then, I have written two different Amish fiction series [parts of three different stories during NaNoWriMo sessions] and I am very excited about them both.
Hope you enjoy reading about my adventures into writing and publishing (hopefully soon).
PLEASE use the image and Bio below in any interviews, features and/or review posts about Rachel’s books.
Rachel L Miller writes sweet Amish romance with a focus on faith, family and friendship.
She feels very strongly that God has led her to live a simpler lifestyle – thus her deep kinship with the plain people. She enjoys spending time with her family and doing fun, simple things like swimming, making sun tea, sitting outside watching the sunrise or listening to rain fall on the tin roof.
Rachel enjoys writing Amish fiction and hopes that the purity of her stories will allow God’s message to shine through more clearly. She also writes Contemporary Inspirational Romance – and with all of her stories she focuses on presenting romance the way God intended it to be.
GOD BLESS YOU!
