Back Home

I arrived back in Cincinnati on Sunday afternoon, tired but so excited about my trip to Denver. At ACFW, I had some great meetings with my agent, and finally got to meet Beth Wiseman!

Beth writes Amish Romances, too. I loved her first book Plain Perfect so much, I mailed it to my Amish friend in Holmes County!

Beth and I were excited to realize that we're both from Houston, Texas. In fact, we graduated high school right near each other! Talk about a small world.

I also met lots of other authors and got to visit with a wonderful girl friend of mine, Karen. Karen lives in Fort Collins, and drove all the way down to Denver to have dinner and shop with me on Saturday night! Years ago, Karen and I used to live on the same street in Dallas. In fact, she threw even threw a baby shower for me! And, she just happens to be from Houston, too. Even though I haven't lived in Houston for almost thirty years, I guess it-and Houstonians-have always stayed in my heart.

This week brings lots of writing. I'm hoping to finish Autumn's Promise by mid-November. And, of course, there's an Amish historical idea I've been fussing with...

I better go get busy and write!

  1. Shelley, it was so great to meet you in Denver! You are just as sweet as everyone says you are! And, I loved 'Hidden'. Hope to see you again soon. Maybe RWA in Nashville??

    Blessing to you! Beth Wiseman
