Helping former Amish assimilate in the "forbidden" English world is a learning curve! I - and my readers now - know about the insular, reclusive Amish life and struggles to adapt to our non-Amish world.

Background Information

     Award-winning author, blogger, and speaker Brenda Nixon has written or contributed to 35 titles, including Beyond Buggies and Bonnets: Seven true stories of former Amish, and eight books in the NY Times Best-Selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series. 

As a "mom to the ex-Amish" Brenda blogs and posts pictures of her unique experiences with those who've left the plain life. She has two "sons" from the Swartzentruber Amish - Mosie and Monroe -  and her daughter married Harvey, who grew up/left the Swartzentruber Order.

Popular and engaging, Brenda speaks at public and private venues, sharing Amish clothing and fascinating facts about this complex American subculture.

Married for 36 years, Brenda lives, writes, and travels to speak from Ohio - home to the largest number of Amish settlements nationwide.
