About Amy Clipston
All of the books in my Kauffman Amish Bakery series have achieved the Christian Fiction bestseller lists, including the CBA (Christian Book Association) bestseller list and the ECPA (Evangelical Christian Publishers Association) bestseller list.
I love writing about the Amish, and an Amish friend in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, reads my manuscripts for accuracy. I was always fascinated with the Amish when I was a child. I remember visiting Lancaster County, and my father, who was a German immigrant, told me that the Amish speak the same dialect of German as my relatives. I was drawn to their simplicity and faith. Due to my German heritage, I feel a loose connection to the Amish and their culture.
My plots come straight from my heart and all involve family issues intertwined with faith.

100th Post - Winner!

Congratulations to Kathleen, the winner of our 100th Post Giveaway! I am delighted to announce that Kathleen wins a copy of her favorite book (The House by the Dvina: A Russian Childhood, Eugenie Fraser), my favorite book (Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë), and some special Jane Austen bling straight from the Jane Austen Center at Bath, UK. Many congratulations and thanks for the moving comment, Kathleen. I will be contacting you by email soon.
Thank you to everyone for reading and for entering. Stay tuned for future FAN FRIDAYS author interviews... (and more Christian fiction giveaways) as we move forward with our next 100 posts! May Christ be praised in all we do.

In His Love,

So today I want to CELEBRATE the milestones of being 100 years old, 100 blogs and life experiences richer, and the memory of 100 stars having been splashed out across a stunning September sky.

I am having a special GIVEAWAY that will include: A copy of my all-time favorite book  (inscribed with one of my favorite Bible verses), a copy of your favorite book, and some special Jane Austen bling, just for you.

1. The light show of a Minnesota night, waving in and out, looking like thunder without sound, dancing against the sky. So beautiful; I got a crick in my neck watching for so long. Magnificent. I will never forget it (the light show, not the crick).
2. This is a hard one! I prefer Historical Fiction and appreciate the research the author does to set the characters within events/happenings. However, I am going to go with a true one, "The House by the Dvina: A Russian Childhood" by Eugenie Fraser. I saw the book on a chair in an ad for bedding in a magazine, and looked for it at our library. I read it long ago and have never forgotten it.
