Suzanne Woods Fisher

Suzanne Woods Fisher lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Suzanne graduated from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, and was a freelance writer for magazines while her children were growing up. A former contributing editor to Christian Parenting Today, Suzanne has placed her work in many magazines, including Today’s Christian Woman, Worldwide Challenge, and Marriage Partnership.

Her first novel, Copper Star, a World War II love story, was published by a small press (Vintage Inspirations) and received three literary awards. It opened the door to a literary agent, Joyce Hart. The agent knew of Suzanne’s connection to the Plain People—her grandfather was raised Plain—and introduced her to an editor at Revell, a division of Baker Books. Amish Peace: Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World was the result of that first conversation. It was a 2010 ECPA Book of the Year finalist … and it is the book Suzanne wants to be buried with.

And that was 25 books ago! So it seems things are working out pretty well.
