One of my readers emailed me the other day, curious about what I had in the works and what she could expect from me in the coming months. I had to giggle when I read her question since I find myself working on multiple projects at the same time.
For many of you, you’re anxiously awaiting the third book in my Secrets of Willow Springs series. I have to admit I struggled a bit to figure out how I wanted Daniel to deal with the secrets his grandfather kept from him. I even went as far as to ask some of my Facebook followers to help me decide. I’m happy with the response I got to my question and took all the comments into account when I outlined his storyline.
This third book will bring an end to the series, and I want to get it right. If you haven’t read Secrets of Willow Springs – Book 1 and Secrets of Willow Springs – Book 2, now is the time to get them under your belt before Book 3 is released. You’ll enjoy the storyline so much better if you know Emma and Marie’s backstory going into Book 3 – which is Daniel’s story.
At the moment, I’m finishing up a spring release that takes place at The Apple Blossom Inn in Willow Springs. If you read The Amish Women of Lawrence County, you may remember Mrs. Sorensen, who runs the Apple Blossom Inn and was introduced in Sarah’s story. Mrs. Sorensen is still difficult to deal with but has met her match when Maggie Fisher from Tomah, Wisconsin comes to town.
In this sweet love blooms at the Apple Blossom Inn storyline, Maggie finds herself being sent to Pennsylvania to find a husband. Can a guest at the Inn find his way into her heart, or will she return to Tomah and prove to her family she has no need to be married? I guess you’ll need to find out when The Apple Blossom Inn releases later this spring.
For now, it’s back to Willow Springs to finish writing Maggie’s story and then onto Daniel and the drama he faces with his Sugarcreek grandfather.
See you between the pages,
P.S – I will be making an appearance on Saturday, February 15, from 12-5 pm at the Willoughby, Ohio Library along with a lineup of other Amish Fiction Authors. If you are local to that area, mark your calendar and be sure to enjoy us for an afternoon filled with books, fun, and new friends.
Tracy Fredrychowski is a country girl, author, homesteader and everything simple living. She has a passion for writing about the simpler side of life, much like the life she lived growing up in rural Pennsylvania.
Her life has always been intertwined with the Amish, and it’s only fitting that she has a genuine passion for their simplicity, sense of community and God-centered lives.
Growing up in Northwest Pennsylvania she spent her childhood immersed deep in Amish Country. The clip-clop of horse and buggy woke her each morning as Amish men drove past her childhood home on their way to work. As a young woman, she was traumatized by an Amish murder that involved a family member and changed her life forever.
Even though she currently lives in South Carolina her travels take her through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin’s Amish Country every year. During those stops, she researches the communities she visits and prides herself on writing Amish fiction that truly represents the Amish culture. She considers herself very fortunate to have made friends in those communities and values the information they share and wants nothing more than to represent their lifestyle as accurately as possible.
