The author maintained this attitude throughout high school. After getting her degree in communication from Virginia Wesleyan University, Norfolk, Clipston joined the U.S Army Corps of Engineers.

The Norfolk District job was supposed to keep the author occupied for the summer. She did not expect to remain in the position for eleven years. But that is what happened.

She spent the four years that followed in Public Affairs before using her writing and editing skills in the Planning department. At the time, Clipston had shown no interest in publishing.

She was still writing. But she was only doing it for fun and it never occurred to her that her stories could become published works. In fact, she went so far as to hide her writing activities from her husband, Joe. She was reluctant to let anyone know that she dabbled in fiction.

Only her closest friends knew of Clipston’s hobby. Everything changed when she joined Chesapeake Romance Writers. She found them by accident. The writing group was a Godsend because it introduced Clipston to other writers that took note of her gifts.

Rather than simply encouraging her to publish her manuscripts, the writing group brought Clipston to the realization that she actually had a desire to become a successful author. They showed her that it was her dream to see her novels in bookstores and libraries.

Once she understood and accepted this ambition, Clipston’s new friends gave her the guidance she needed to write her first novel. They showed her how to plot, write, edit and submit manuscripts.
Eventually, she landed a literary agent. In 2007, she secured a publishing deal, paving the way for ‘Amish Singing’, ‘Amish Sweethearts’, ‘Amish Homestead’, and all the other series she has written over the years.

Clipston loves what she does. However, her family is just as important to the author. She met her husband, Joe, in college. Her life was tumultuous at the time because her father had just suffered a massive stroke.

Joe and Clipston had great chemistry. Their wedding four years later did not surprise anyone. The author saved her husband’s life when she gave her kidney to another man’s wife. This same man donated his kidney to Clipston’s husband.

The event cemented the enthusiasm Clipston has for organ and blood donation. She wrote a book about her husband’s kidney transplant (A Gift of Love).

Best Amy Clipston Books

Besides the Chesapeake Romance Writers, the author is also a member of the Romance Writers of America and the American Christian Fiction Writers, not to mention the Authors Guild. Clipston’s best books include:

A Gift of Grace: Rebecca Kauffman’s life was in turmoil. She wanted a beautiful family with amazing children and a dutiful husband. But she was stuck with Jessica and Lindsay, her teenage nieces.

Their English parents had perished in an accident. Rebecca had hoped to create a warm and loving environment for them. But Jessica was too rebellious. She had no interest in adopting the Amish ways of her new community. Her actions were exerting significant strain on Rebecca’s relationship with her husband, and Lindsay was hardly in a position to help.

With her life coming apart at the seams, Rebecca couldn’t help but wonder whether her faith in God would be enough to keep her family whole.

A Promise of Hope: Sarah was confused. Her husband was dead and she was left alone to care for their twins. Fortunately, she had her parents and their Amish community to help her.

She did not expect Luke to come knocking one random day. She was even more surprised to learn the secrets that Luke revealed about Peter. Sarah’s husband had chosen to hide a significant portion of his past from his wife. Now, Sarah was expected to bear the consequences of those secrets.

Her growing interest in Luke was only adding to her confusion. Her family was not helping. They wanted her to marry again. But she did not know if she could trust what she felt for Luke.
