Biography

Wanda E. Brunstetter

New York Times bestselling author Wanda E. Brunstetter has captured the hearts of millions of readers with her Amish fiction, making her “Amish Country’s Most Beloved Storyteller.” With more than 70 books to her credit, and with more than eight million copies sold, Wanda has consistently earned spots on such prestigious bestseller lists as New York Times, Publishers Weekly, USA Today and CBA. All of Wanda’s novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life.

Considered one of the founders of the Amish fiction genre, Wanda said her fascination with the simple life began when she met her husband, Richard, who grew up in a Mennonite church. Getting to know her Mennonite sisters-in-law caused the author to yearn for the simpler life. Her desire to explore the Amish culture increased when she discovered that her great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith. In their travels, Wanda and her husband have become close friends with Amish across America, who have credited her with giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.

When not writing, Wanda, who is a puppeteer and ventriloquist, enjoys entertaining children and adults with Amish ventriloquist figures and indulging in photography, gardening, bird-watching and beachcombing. Most of all, she cherishes time spent visiting with her Amish friends, her husband, their two grown children, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She and Richard live in Yakima, Washington, and spend winter months in Sarasota, Florida.
