My book about Amish-themed romance fiction, Thrill of the Chaste: The Allure of Amish Romance Novels, was published by Johns Hopkins University Press in Spring 2013. Through interviews with the genre’s readers, authors, publishers, and the Amish themselves, and using the lens of cultural theory, I explore the wildfire popularity of Amish novels in the twenty-first century.
