Welcome to my webpage! If April showers bring May flowers, we are in for a LOT of flowers. The rains have been plentiful, and in spite of some flooding, we are grateful. I hope your spring is lovely as well.

In April, we had the pleasure of visiting the Amish community of Shipshewana. I’ll share pictures from that visit exclusively in my May newsletter. So be sure you are signed up! (Top box on the right.)  This month I am also going to be offering special sale prices for one autographed selection each month. I’ll announce this only to my newsletter peeps, because they are super special to me.

My May rafflectoper giveaway will run from May 2nd through May 23rd (Details below). As spring turns to summer, I pray that you are well and surrounded by friends, family, and the love of our Lord. Thank you for taking the time to stop by my page! ~Vannetta a Rafflecopter giveaway

From the Back Porch

Christian fiction, The Writing Life Comments: 20


I’m writing today’s blog from the back porch. In Texas, the back porch is where important things happen–it’s where we sip sweet tea, watch the dear, talk to family, and meet with friends. It’s where we go when we need quiet time, devotional time, prayer time. My husband pointed out that we don’t technically have a back porch. We have a back deck, but it’s the same thing in my opinion. My video starts in the back yard and ends up at the deck, where I do my sitting, resting, praying, even working.

Announcements for this week: 

  • An Amish Cradle is $1.99 (ebook only) May 2nd-May 8th. ** Amazon ** B&N ** CBD
  • Shelley Shepard Gray and I are finalizing plans for our Girlfriends Getaway in Charm, OH. If you’re interested in attending, but haven’t made your reservation, email Laurie at
  • Deep Shadows is now available for pre-order. This is the first book in my new dystopian series. Don’t know what dystopian is? Read the blurb for Deep Shadows here. For Amazon, the pre-order price is guaranteed, so if the price goes down before the item is released, you receive the lower price. **Amazon ** B&N ** CBD.
  • My May rafflectopter giveaway is now live. Check here for details. This week’s giveaway includes something I picked up in Shipshewana, a $10 Starbucks card and more!

Time to close down the computer and just enjoy sitting on the back porch. I hope you enjoyed today’s video, and I’d love to hear about YOUR back porch, or wherever you go to relax. Leave a comment on the blog, and I’ll draw a winner to receive a complimentary copy of the book of your choice from my book list.
