250: Crafting an Amish Romance – Interview with Patricia Davids

Hey there word nerds!

Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Patricia Davids on the show!

Born and raised in Kansas, Pat was an NICU nurse for forty years, before switching careers to become an inspirational writer.

She is now a USA Today best-selling author of Amish romance, enjoys playing with her dogs (who think fetch should be a twenty-four hour a day game) and happily dreaming up new stories.

Her latest book, The Wish, is the first in her new romance series The Amish of Cedar Grove, and is now available.

So listen in as Pat and I chat about this amazing book and how to craft a realistic and romantically charged Amish romance.

In this episode Pat and I discuss:

  • Crafting the feeling of anticipated grief within your characters.
  • How to weave Amish culture into your romance naturally.
  • Why you should drop your reader directly into the story and how to do it right.
  • Adding romantic tension when your characters can’t be physical with each other.
  • Tips and techniques to put emotion on the page internally instead of verbally.

Plus, Pat’s #1 tip for writers.
