Welcome back, Shelley. Do you have a favorite genre to write? If so, what is it?
I do! I love to write romances. I guess I’ve always liked books with happy endings, and romances certainly do have that.
If you didn’t live in the part of the country where you do, where would you live?
I would probably live back in
Texas. Maybe not in Houston, where I grew up, though! It’s gotten
much bigger than when I left in the 1980’s.
What foreign country would you like to visit and why?
I love to travel. I’ve always wanted to go to
Casablanca! I blame this
wish completely on the movie.
Describe what you think would be the most romantic vacation you could take.
LOL. Well, since my husband would definitely not say
Casablanca, I’d say on a river cruise somewhere in Europe.
Where would you like to set a story that you haven’t done yet?
Though I’ve traveled a lot, I’ve never set a novel in a foreign country. I think that would be a lot of fun, especially the research part of it!
What is the main theme of this novel?
The main theme of An Amish Family Christmas is forgiveness and acceptance. Both themes go well with the overall Christmas theme, I think.
Tell us about the story.
This novel finishes up the four book Charmed Amish Life Series. It focuses on Levi, who has been having a difficult time dealing with the loss of his parents. When the novel opens, Levi is asked to help a new neighbor named Julia and her daughter Penny. Soon, Levi forms a relationship with both Julia and Penny. Then, he learns that Julia is not exactly who she pretends to be.
Sounds interesting. I want to know just who she is. How can readers find you on the Internet?
We just redesigned my website, so I would love if readers visited me there, at http://www.shelleyshepardgray.com. I’m also active on Facebook and on Twitter, @ShelleySGray
