The e-book version of The Whole World and All is now available on Amazon! The print version will be available soon, too.

I love this story and the main character. Annie Thomas is waking up to the world around her, and in the turbulent mid-1960's, that's a big thing. 

We all experience the worry, stress, and funny experiences we go through while journeying to adulthood, and Annie experiences them all. 

I hope readers enjoy this coming-of-age story and fall in love with Annie, her big sister Kinsey, her little brother Robert, and Kinsey's wacky southern friend Peach!

The Whole World and All

Here it is - the proof copy of The Whole World and All! My first non-Amish novel set in the mid 1960's is a "boomer" story and I love the story. It's funny, poignant, and nostalgic. 

Once my husband and I give the proof copy another read through, it'll be available on Amazon in ebook and paperback soon!

The Whole World and All

Most of my readers know me as an author of Amish stories, but the very first manuscript I ever finished was a coming-of-age story. After many, many years, that book is finally going to be available before long! I'm finishing up the final edits and have the cover now, too. 

I've loved the characters in this story from the beginning. Annie Thomas is kind of like me as a pre-teen, but not like me, either. She gets herself into some surprising situations, something my shy self would never do. But I also can relate to the days when my thoughts began to perceive of things and events outside myself and my world. I remember those days of turmoil and questioning, but also the fun of being between the teen world and childhood.

The Whole World and All is funny, poignant, and endearing. I can't wait to share Annie's world with you!
