Meet Tracy Fredrychowski, Author
USA Today Bestselling Author and Faith, Hope & Love Reader’s Choice Award Winner
Country girl, author, homesteader and anything simple living is what I love! I have a passion for writing about the simpler side of life, much like the life I lived growing up in rural Pennsylvania.
My life has always been intertwined with the Amish culture, and it’s only fitting that I have a genuine passion for their simplicity, sense of community and God-centered life.
Growing up in Northwest Pennsylvania I spent my childhood immersed deep in Amish Country. The clip-clop of horse and buggies woke me each morning as Amish men drove past my childhood home on their way to work. As a young woman, I was traumatized by an Amish murder that involved my family and changed my life forever. (If you want to read about it, please read Crimson Stain by Jim Fisher and take note that Jake, who was an essential part of that true story was my uncle.)
Even though we currently live in South Carolina our travels take us through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin’s Amish Country every year. During those stops, I research the communities we visit and I pride myself on writing Amish fiction that truly represents the Amish culture. I am very fortunate to have made friends in these communities and value the information they share with me and want nothing more than to share it as accurately as possible.

Tucked away in Northwestern Pennsylvania, resides a small group of Amish that calls Lawrence County their home. Along the winding country roads, etched with well-worn buggy tracks, are families that hold the values of God, Family, and Community deep in tradition. Among them, are ten women whose lives intertwine in this quiet Pennsylvania town. I invite you to come with me as I take you for a walk in a “day in the life” of these Amish women.
Each of them is led by the Lord to take care of her family, and each embraces her role as the one who holds her family together. Some will discover new love, one will battle health issues, some will need to forgive, and others will find who they are in Christ. But what binds them all together is their desire to serve God, love their families, and support their community by loving their neighbors, just as God instructs them to do.
