Interview with Kathleen Fuller, Exciting News & Giveaways!

Today I'm welcoming noted author Kathleen Fuller to my blog! So pull up a chair and grab your coffee and say Hi!

Lets ask Kathleen some questions!

What interested you in writing Amish fiction? Do you live near the Amish/have
plain relatives?

My interest developed when we moved to Ohio from Arkansas. I was interested in the
culture even before I started writing. When the opportunity to write Amish fiction
became available, I decided to go for it. I don't have any Amish or plain relatives, but I
did make an Amish friend in Middlefield who helped me out with my first books. My
background is actually Eastern Orthodox, although I'm Protestant now. The Anabaptist
faith was something very unfamiliar to me, and I had to research and learn about it in
order to get it right in my stories.

Does your family have any specific Thanksgiving traditions?

My mother-in-law's cornbread dressing. She would make it much better than I do,
though. It's a simple southern recipe that my husband loves.

What keeps you plugging along and motivated when you write?

I love to tell stories. The actual writing of the first draft is really hard for me, but creating
the stories and characters is a lot of fun.

 What is your favorite Christmas tradition?

Eating! Actually, I'm serious. We don't have any long-standing traditions in my family,
other than baking and eating Christmas treats. When my kids were young, we used to
bake a cake for Jesus' birthday. That is one tradition I want to keep going.

What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?

I love traditional carols. O Holy Night and O Come Emmanuel are two of my all time

Do you plan to write more Amish Christmas books in the future?

Maybe with the current series in writing? I don't have anything Christmas themed in the
pipeline, but I would love to write another Christmas book. They're a lot of fun. In
Words From the Heart (Mar. 2018) Christmas is mentioned, but it's not the center of
the story.
