Get to Know Molly Jebber, Author of Amish Romance CHANGE OF HEART
July 10, 2015
What started you on your writing journey?
My childhood imaginary friends, Bugs and Debbie. As an only child before my
brother was born, Bugs was my little companion who got the blame for all the
things I did wrong, and Debbie got all the credit for the things I did good.
Mom laughed at my imaginary friends. Dad was a little worried about me. They
were relieved when Bugs and Debbie went by the wayside when my brother, Mitch
was born! With my imagination, my friends and family encouraged me to write,
and Iâ€™ve always wanted to.
What distracts you from writing the easiest?
My husband, Ed, suggesting we go to dinner or a movie. My daughter, Misty or my
friends wanting me to go to lunch for a good gab session, movie, swimming or
beach. Eyeing a really good book on my nightstand and picking it up to read a
few pages, and then not being able to put it down.
What kind of books do you enjoy reading?
Devotional, Romance and Mysteries
Which character in your new release most interested you while you wrote?
Becca â€“ Sheâ€™s kind but speaks her mind. Sheâ€™s got a large birthmark on her
hand, but she doesnâ€™t let it define her. She loves God and appreciates her
Amish upbringing, but she struggles with how to react when sheâ€™s faced with
difficult people and harrowing situations.
What is your favorite season of the year?
Summer! Iâ€™m happier when I can see my toes and have sunshine on me!
What do you like most about the area where you live and/or grew up?
Springboro, Ohio. It was a small town. Everybody knew each other. My brother
and I had lots of children our age who lived on our street. My daughter, Misty,
was also raised there, but it grew by leaps and bounds before she graduated
from high school. We loved the festivals, history, school spirit, local church,
and candy store! The family who bought our house years ago still have my
playhouse in their backyard. Itâ€™s been painted and is leaning a little, but I
tear up every time I drive by it and remember my dad building it out of scrap
lumber. He passed a few years ago.
Has some place you have traveled inspired something in your writing?
I love visiting Amish towns and learning from them. They inspire me with their
strong belief in God and focus on Him. I find their way of life fascinating. I
enjoy shopping in their stores and seeing their handiwork. The quilts and other
dry goods are beautiful.
When is your next book due out and can you tell us about it?
My next book is part of an anthology titled, THE AMISH
CHRISTMAS SLEIGH with Amy Lillard and Kelly Long will be released October,
2015. My story is AN UNEXPECTED CHRISTMAS BLESSING.
"As much as Charity Lantzâ€™s children need a father, the young widow isnâ€™t
sure her new neighbor Luke Fisher can ever be the right choice. Sheâ€™s drawn to
him, but theyâ€™re having more disagreements and misunderstandings than
snowflakes in December. Will God show them a way past their conflicts to a
HEART is the first book of a three book Keepsake
Pocket Quilt series. GRACEâ€™S FORGIVENESS is the second book in the

A modern new century brings a young Amish woman an unexpected new lifeâ€”
and a chance to discover love's true way homeâ€¦
Ohio, 1899. Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith's strict
rulesâ€”until her fiancĂ© jilted her before their entire community. She's never
been away from home, but the bustling Englischer town of Massillon, Ohio, is a
welcome unexpected refuge. Especially when she goes to work for Dr. Matt
Carrington, who shares her passion for healing those in need. His outgoing
spirit and gentle strength show Becca a surprising new world of choicesâ€”and
irresistible love. But there is one formidable obstacle: Matt's wealthy mother
is determined her son will marry a society woman.
With her newfound resolve challenged, Becca decides that she and Matt must not
be destined for each other after all. She accepts that she will have to forge a
life aloneâ€”until a wrenching crisis and life-changing revelations teach her
that true faith lies in all things, especially impossible second chances. . .

Amish Romance is meaningful and captivating.

I've always found the Amish people interesting. I also find
it amazing how they are able to get by on such with such a
simple life. I've had the pleasure of meeting a couple of
Amish people, and was beyond thrilled to have a wonderful
conversation with them. To have their talent when it comes
to making quilts would be such a blessing. I'm totally
amazed to see their handiwork!! Reading about them gives me
a little window into their world, and helps me to understand
them a little better, so that the next time I'm having that
conversation, I don't need to feel so awkward. I'm looking
forward to reading your book, since I can feel the love you
have for the Amish people, as well as people as a whole.
Congratulations on your latest book!! I'm also looking
forward to your Christmas series as well. It sounds

Here in England we don't have any Amish communities. I like the way the books are written with their faith intertwined seamlessly and without being too preachy which can be off putting. Amish romance with its gentleness and serenity is a welcome contrast to the explicitness of today's contemporary romance.

I love Amish romances because they are faith based. Reading about and knowing people who are willing to stand out as Christians is so inspiring.

I love the Amish they are always so nice at market and
they are so simple. There children are always really good
and doing crafts that i can't do. They are so religious
that it is great and also have the neighbors and
community that is one like family . the Amish is
something that i learn everyday about and they are so
different than myself living in Calif moving to Iowa.
