: Big Sky Amish #2
: Christen Krumm with Tricia Goyer
: Sunrise Publishing
Release Date

: Christian Contemporary Amish Romance

One wrong post has sent influencer Lyla Taylor’s social media empire crashing to her feet. To save it, she’ll have to escape to rural Montana. Six weeks in a high-end spa won’t hurt…except, she’s not booked into a spa, but at a rustic Amish B&B. Suddenly, her roommates are racoons, and her daily activities include hanging laundry. Thanks, but no thanks. Lyla is ready to hit delete and head back to civilization.

Amishman Reuben Milner has a secret…one that could destroy his world. For now, however, he’s kept his life as a novelist under wraps, focusing on providing for his family after the tragic passing of his father. Renting the dawdi house seems the right move—until the wrong woman moves in. However, she comes with ideas to help improve their B&B, and that, along with her feisty personality, is something Reuben can’t ignore. Even if the elders want him to focus on joining the church and finding a wife. 

When going home isn’t an option, Lyla decides to help the Milners spruce up their rental. It does help distract her from her problems online. The more Lyla works on the rental with Reuben, the more she wonders if returning to her former life is worth it. However, is it the simple life that Lyla’s heart longs for—or a particular guarded Amishman with secrets of his own? And when those secrets are discovered, what will it cost them both?  

Book two in the delightful and sweet Big Sky Amish Collection.

Author Interview with Christen Krumm

Welcome, Christen! Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and allowing my readers a chance to get to know you and your new book On the Golden Cliffs. 

I like to start these interviews the same way, with something fun to break the ice. Can you share 5 random facts about you that we will not find in your bio? 


*I was homeschooled K-12
*Happy mail (sending + receiving) is my favorite

*I worked three jobs (coffee shop shift manager, nanny, and personal assistant) through college.

*I’m a lifelong pastor’s kid

*Star Wars is my favorite Christmas movie because growing up, we only watched the trilogy on Christmas

When did you first discover you had a passion for writing? 


I remember writing my first story when I was six — and I’ve been writing ever since.


This is the second book in the newest series from Sunrise Publishing- Big Sky Amish series. Can you share a bit about your experience with the audition and selection process and how that came to be?


The (blind) audition was great. I’m not very patient person, and the fact that Sunrise decides fairly quickly (in comparison to the industry) made the process painless.


I actually didn’t make up my mind to submit until literally an hour before the deadline. I feel like I found out in a little under two weeks that I had made it to the top ten and then maybe another month before a contract was offered.


What was it like working with Tricia Goyer on this series? 


She’s amazing. I’ve been working as her VA for the past twelve years, so I already knew how great she was. She’s patience and encouraging. She’s the perfect mentor for any level of author!


What is the most valuable thing you took away from the process? 


It’s really okay to have bad first drafts (no, really. It is.)


Can you tell us a little bit more about On the Golden Cliffs


On the Golden Cliffs is about a social media star who falls from grace and ends up in an Amish community in Montana. While there, she meets a Amishman who has a secret of his own that could threaten his livelihood if it gets out. And of course they fall in love — with a lot of mishaps along the way. It's super fun and not your typical Amish read. I hope you'll enjoy it!


What was the most challenging part of bringing this story to life? The most rewarding?


Staying out of my head. I hadn’t read any Amish prior to getting this contract (and I’ve only read Tricia’s Amish since), so I was constantly worried that my story wasn’t “Amish enough”. The most rewarding is having done it!


What do you hope readers will take away from the book? 


The truth that God loves you just the way you are. You don’t need a mask when coming to Him!


Thank you again for taking the time to answer these questions. Before you go, are there any other projects you are currently working on that you can share? 


I’m currently working on my next two books in Big Sky series (which will be books five and seven—out in 2024!)
