Wanda Brunstetter, New York Times best-selling author of Christian Amish fiction, has officially sold more than 7 million copies of her books. She passed the 6 million mark in 2012, and has now sold another 1 million books in just over a year.
The Yakima, Wash., author’s novels have also appeared on the best-seller lists of USA Today, Publishers Weekly, CBA, ECPA and CBD.
Brunstetter has won the Retailer’s Choice Award, and many of her books have been Picks of the Week at CBD. Her 2013 sales have been boosted by her six-book Discovery Saga, as well as her second full-length novel about an Amish quilting class in Indiana, The Tattered Quilt.
Brunstetter and her husband recently returned from Bird-in-Hand, Penn., where the author met readers at signings celebrating performances of “Half-Stitched – The Musical.” The play is based on Brunstetter’s 2012 novel, The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club, a prequel to The Tattered Quilt.
With connections to the Amish community through her family heritage, Brunstetter enjoys writing her award-winning Amish bestsellers, because they portray a simpler, more peaceful life and convey the strong family values she holds dear.
