Meet the Author

J.E.B. Spredemann resides in central California and currently writes Christian fiction.

Author Interview below from brittreadsfiction.wordpress.com:

B: Thanks for being here with us. Will you tell us a little about yourself and how long you have been writing books?

J: Thank you for having me here, Brittany. I am the J. in J.E.B. Spredemann. The acronymous name J.E.B. Spredemann was created about a year and a half ago and stands for Jennifer (myself), Emily (my daughter), and Brandi (my daughter). Since three names are a little much to fit on the cover of a book, we thought J.E.B. was suitable and somewhat incognito. ;)

We began penning works of literature a little over a year and a half ago. Joanna's Struggle (Book 1 of the Amish Girls Series) was the first book we co-authored.

NOTE: We began writing the Amish Girls Series together, but since then the girls have branched out and are currently working on fiction in other Christian genres. The adult novellas are solely penned by J. Spredemann. I chose to not change the name because I felt readers were already familiar with J.E.B., so I kept it. The only place this is indicated is at the front of each book where the 'Other Books by the Author' are listed; you will see an asterisk * next to the books.

B: How did you decide to focus on writing Amish fiction? Is this a genre you enjoy reading?

J: Yes, I enjoy reading Amish fiction immensely. Our writing journey began when Brandi asked me why they didn't have more (Amish) books for girls her age. I replied, "Why don't we write some?" Since then, we've put our hands to the plow and haven't looked back. Also, my husband and I both have German ancestry. My husband currently speaks fluent German and has a Mennonite background.

B: I appreciated the fact that the gospel message was clearly presented several times in the story. Do all of your books present the gospel to readers?

J: I think the Gospel is essential and it is the reason I write. I aim to have the Gospel in all my books. In one form or another, it is presented in each book. If a person only reads one of my books, I want them to know that, no matter who they are or what they've done, God loves them and He made a way for them to get to Heaven. John 3:16-18, Romans 10:9-13

    Abigail¿s Triumph is book #6 in The Amish Girls Series. This wa

    Abigail’s Triumph is book #6 in The Amish Girls Series. This was a very heartwarming story about an Amish community that comes together to help the children of a family that have been victims of abuse. The story covers acceptance, releasing anger and hate, and forgiveness. One of my favorite quotes in the book is spoken by a father who has taken one of the girls into his home. “‘You know, our earthly fathers are supposed to be a picture of the Heavenly Father and I’m afraid even the best daed falls short of that responsibility. I’m sorry to say that your father was a very poor example to you and your brothers and sisters. Even so, it is not our place to pass judgment and we must offer forgiveness. ‘“ What a lovely display of words for our next generation.
    You will find this entire series to be a shining example of Christianity to our young girls and teens. I love the use of scripture throughout the books and the way the dialogue often shows how even our young people can be used of God through their words, actions, and example.

     Abuse of wives and children is never pretty and it is a tragic

     Abuse of wives and children is never pretty and it is a tragic event in the Amish community as Abigail and her siblings fight to survive.    I love how the Amish community rallies together to support the family and provide for their needs.   Abigail truly does triumph over great adversity in this book.  I believe this one was my favorite of the six books in the series to this point.   5 *****
    I received a free pdf version of this book in exchange for my honest review.
