Welcome back, Pam Desmond Wright!

Welcome Back, Pam Desmond Wright!

LM: Thanks for joining me today. Congratulations on your recent release Finding Her Amish Home. Before we chat about that, tell us what draws you to writing about the Amish?

Pamela: I grew up playing in an authentic log cabin on my grandparent’s farm. It was wonderful, complete with a woodburning stove! I love everything old-fashioned, like oil burning lamps, a crackling fire, and simple pass-times like needlepoint.

LM: What was your inspiration for the story?

Pamela: I really can’t say what inspired it, just that like so many of my stories it just popped into my mind and I knew I had to write it.

LM: What sort of research did you have to do for this particular book?

Pamela: Since I am in Texas I do a lot of research online, through Google. Many of my readers are

astonished I do not live in Amish country or ever even met an Amish person. It’s all research.

LM: You were a prolific writer in the 1990s, then took a break and came back to the industry in 2013. How are things different in publishing? The same?

Pamela: It is pretty much the same. Deadlines and delivery dates rule a writer’s schedule.

LM: How do you decide your characters’ names, what they look like, and their jobs?

Pamela: I love looking for unusual names and once I have a name, I can “see” what they look like in my mind.

LM: What is your favorite part of the writing process?

Pamela: Really disappearing into the story so much that I forget the outside world.

LM: You’ve accomplished quite a lot. What is one thing you wish you knew how to do?

Pamela: I wish I was more mechanical and could repair things like cars and other kinds of engines. That would be a handy talent to have nowadays.

LM: What is your next project?

Pamela: I am presently working on the second book in my Texas Amish Brides series. This is the sequel to The Cowboy’s Amish Haven and is Rebecca’s story.

LM: Where can folks find you on the web?
