I love writing historical Western romance novellas and short stories. I also write a cozy mystery or two. They are such fun!Your books often contain an element of faith as well as clean romance and love. Is that important to you as a writer?Yes, my faith is important to me, and as an author, clean Christian Western romance is my heart passion. I love being able to tell a story, be it an American mail-order brides series, a mail-order bride and babies tale, or a historical Western romance novella, and at the same time bring a positive message of hope, faith, and love to uplift readers.Are all of your stories clean reads?Yes, every story I write is clean and wholesome, and I find that language and sex-free mail-order bride books are just as good as those that include such things.

As a reader, I love historical fiction. Among my favorites is The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani. Although captivated by Trigiani’s characters, Enza and Ciro, my thoughts never veered far from my grandfather’s story as I read and reread the book. My Gidu had a similar story to tell and I only heard bits and pieces of what I believe was a fascinating life. My father’s father, Sam, arrived in the New York harbor and Ellis Island about the year 1905 from Damascus, Syria. This marked the beginning of the remarkable success of a young man who was 17 at the time. Sam began work as a peddler in the coal mining settlements during the era when men became millionaires from investments in coal, coke, and steel. He eventually becomes the proprietor of Hanna’s Department Store where he embodied the Syrian values of hard work, honesty, and trust. The central setting for The Syrian Peddler is in southwestern Pennsylvania including Pittsburgh, Uniontown, New Salem, and Masontown, spanning the years between 1905 and 1958. The story is historical fiction as not all facts were available. As much as possible, the writing is factual. My research included visits to Ellis Island, The Hotel Wolcott, New York City; The Family History Museum, Salt Lake City, Utah. I went back to places in Pennsylvania that were familiar to me: Masontown, where I went to kindergarten and St. Ellien of Homs, Syrian Orthodox Church in Brownsville. I have met several people who have emigrated from Syria. One young man came six years ago and settled in Austin, Texas, where I now live. He is saddened by the destruction of majestic buildings and the war itself. So many lives lost. I cannot begin to imagine what Sam would think today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Sears.
