Wanda E. Brunstetter is a successful published American author. She has won awards and is a prolific author, having written over a hundred books with over twelve million copies in total sold and counting. Her books have also been translated into different languages so that readers can enjoy them all over the world. A significant amount of her books have been featured on the top best-sellers’ lists for publications such as Publisher’s Weekly, the New York Times, USA Today, ECPA, Christianbook, and CBA.

Wanda is one of the first writers to found the genre of Amish fiction. She has had ancestors that were Anabaptist, but her books are more based on the research that she has done. Wanda intentionally did her own exhaustive research so that she could accurately show the Amish way of life. She has many Amish friends who read her books and trust her, many of them giving her credit for giving her readers a more in-depth understanding of the Amish and their customs.

Whenever she visits her friends who is Amish, she always appreciates their peaceful lifestyle, close family relationships, and sincerity. Her interest in the Amish culture first developed when she met Richard, her husband. He grew up in the Mennonite church and has a family that has a heritage of being Pennsylvania Dutch. She met her new sisters-in-law and being exposed to the Mennonite ways caused her to want the simpler life.

Through her travels, she and Richard have met many different Amish individuals all over America and have become close friends with many of them. What she likes about the Amish is that they have a genuine want to live a devout life where they honor God, have close families, and work hard. She finds their lifestyle to be very different from the often chaos-filled lives that so many English (non-Amish) people lead.

Wanda also wanted to find out more about the Amish culture when she found out that her great-great-great grandparents were Anabaptist. Jacob and Mary Landess belonged to a Plain people group known as the Dutch Quakers. They were connected to the Dunkard church, which was part of the Anabaptist movement and also includes the Amish and Mennonite. They had thirteen children. This personal connection to the history of this portion of religion has only increased Wanda’s desire to do more research and know more about these people in particular and their faith.

She hares two children that are now grown with her husband. They also have grandchildren and great-grandchildren and love spending time with their family as much as they can. For her personal hobbies, she likes photography, gardening, ventriloquism, beach combing, bird watching, and having quality time with her family.

The novelist grew up in Tacoma, Washington, and still lives in the state. Her parents did not outright support her when they found out that she wanted to be a writer when she was older. Her father said she was a dreamer. Brunstetter had her first novel published in 1997, when she was sixty years old. It would be another three years before a publishing house accepted her second manuscript.

The author worked for the government as a typist and met her future husband through work. He was stationed at Fort Lewis at the time. Her mother requested that she take a correspondence course on writing in 1980. After, the author started selling work to religious publications and children’s magazines. She has been said to have a gift for storytelling, according to Library Journal. She includes Dietsch language phrases in her dialogue and has written cookbooks with recipes from Amish cooking.

Wanda belongs to the Romance Writers of America, American Christian Fiction Writers, and the Northwest Christian Writers Association. She has won the Retailers Choice Award for The Storekeeper’s Daughter in 2006 and won the Retailers Choice Award again for Lydia’s Charm in 2011. Family Fiction magazines also named her author of the year in 2011. She won the Reviewers’ Choice Award from Single Titles for The Tattered Quilt. Wanda also received the Career Achievement Award for inspirational novels from RT Book Reviews in 2013 and the Reviewers’ Choice Award from Single Titles for Woman of Courage in 2014.
