Judith Miller
Judith McCoy Miller was born in the year 1944 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is the youngest of three kids.

She stayed in Pennsylvania until she was seventeen, having recently graduated from high school. She believed herself to be rather worldly and made a big move from big city life to living in the country out in Kansas. In reality, her life up to that point was pretty sheltered.

While she was making her way into Kansas one early day in spring, she took a look at the countryside and told her companion, who later became her husband that they had big yards out in Kansas. It wound up being unripened and green wheat. This unwitting mark of hers stayed a family joke over the years.

When the wheat starts to ripen in spring, she is reminded of the times when she first showed up in the Midwest. In the time since, she has used her time in Kansas to educate herself about the state she calls home.

Her first novel, “Threads of Love”, was created during a time when Judith was traveling sixty miles to work every day. She wanted to tell the story of a pioneer that came to Kansas and the faith that kept her going while she adjusted to her new life. After finishing the novel, she put it away, since she had to idea of how publishing a novel would work and had not even thought about it happening at all.

Through a co-worker, though, she was lead to Tracie Peterson, who was working right down the hall from her, at the time. Since Judith had never met Tracie before, she was totally unaware she had a writing career. Tracie and Judith have penned several series together.

She credits her husband, Jim, with starting her interest in historical treatises. She would ask what he would like for his birthday, Christmas, and Father’s Day, he would hand over a long list of all of the history books he wanted to read. Judith would give him a tough time about his dull reading habits, until one day she picked up a boring history book and started reading it. She is still hooked. Ideas for quite a few of her stories come when she happens upon a historical tidbit that intrigues her. Then she finds herself in a bunch of research, and there is a tale that starts weaving itself into her heart.

She lives in Topeka, Kansas, where she can pursue writing full-time. She is the mother of four kids, two sons and two daughters.

She has written the “Home to Amana” series, the “Postcards from Pullman” series, the “Broadmoor Legacy” series, and the “Freedom’s Path” series, as well as some stand alone work. Her work is from the historical romance and inspirational genres.

“Somewhere to Belong” is the first novel in the “Daughters of Imana” series and was released in the year 2010. Johanna Ilg has lived her whole life in Main Amana, which is one of the seven villages inhabited by devout Christians that believe in a simple lifestyle, coopertive living, and faithful service to God. Even though she has longed to get out and see the outside world, Johanna thinks her future is rooted within this community. She finds out a troubling secret, and the world she believed she knew becomes shattered. It makes her make some tough decisions about a new life as well as the man that she left behind.

Berta Schumacher has lived a rather privileged life in Chicago, and her parents decide that they want to move to Amana, Iowa for a simpler life, she resists. Berta’s rebellion reaches some new heights under all of the strictures of these Amana villages. Is her heart ever going to be content among the plain people in Amana?

“More Than Words” is the second novel in the “Daughters of Imana” series and was released in the year 2010. Gretchen Kohler is the daughter of an Amana storekeeper who has a secret passion for writing. Artistic pursuits are frowned upon in the conservative Amana village, making her confine her stories and poems to her journals and only allows her closest friends to read any of them.

A young reporter enters her store, she thinks she has found a kindred spirit. Gretchen shares some of her stories with him, just to have her trust betrayed in the worst of ways, which results in trouble for her whole community.

The scandal is made worse because gypsies have set up camp close by and appear to be preying on the Amanas’ pacifist and compassionate nature. Is Gretchen going to lose her reputation, job, as well as the love of her childhood love just because she made a single bad choice?

“A Bond Never Broken” is the third novel in the “Daughters of Imana” series and was released in the year 2011. For many years now, Ilsa Redlich has helped out with her parents’ hotel out in South Amana. But while the United States enters World War One, she feels her world is changing.

The residents of the towns that surround the Amana Colonies were accepting of their peaceful and quiet neighbors, yet with anti-German sentiment running wild, the Amana villages have become plagued with insults, threats, and vandalism. Things get worse as Ilsa learns that her family is not going to be allowed to speak German in public, and that the childhood friend she has always been smitten with, Garon, has recently joined the Army.

Jutta Schmidt is stunned after several members of the Council of National Defense arrive on her family’s doorstep. Once upon a time, the Schmidt family used to live in the Amana Colonies, but that was years ago. It surprises her more as the council demands that she go to Amana and report to them about any un-American activities going on there.

Not at all daring to disobey these government agents, Jutta takes a job working at the South Amana hotel, and makes friends with the owners’s daughter, then eavesdrops every chance that she gets. Jutta hears about Ilsa making antiwar remarks and sees Garon helping a suspicious outsider, she becomes torn at the very prospect of betraying these new friends of hers. What choice does she really have, thoughj? When Garon becomes accused of something much worse than Jutta thought possible, will the Amana community help him in time?
