From the Author of Runaway Buggy

Carol and Maynard Knepp, Authors of Runaway Buggy

“My husband grew up Amish, and for many years we dreamed of writing a book based on his wild and crazy teenage years. When we finally wrote Runaway Buggy, we were halfway to where we needed to be—we had a manuscript, but how would it end up in a book? That’s where Charity Walton with Good Shepherd Publications stepped in. She made the rest happen. She took our typed words and turned them into a book we were proud to share and sell. Runaway Buggy was a self-publishing smash hit, and led to nine more Amish novels. I can’t thank Charity enough for playing such a significant role in our self-publishing business!”
