As a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, her 14 titles include The Christmas Shoes and The Christmas Blessing - both of which were adapted into movies starring Rob Lowe, Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Neil Patrick Harris. Both movies garnered stellar ratings for CBS, including the highest rated made-for-TV movie of the year.

Along Came A Writer: Guest Author Liz Tolsma
A little abput my guest on the Along Came A Writer show, Author Liz Tolsma...
I’m blest to have the best job in the world – that of an author. I’ve penned several WWII novels, several prairie romance novellas, an Amish novel, and I’m working on my first romantic suspense. I’m a popular speaker on such wide-ranging topics as writing, courage, faith, preserving our family histories, adoption, and marriage. In addition, I work as a freelance editor.
I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and we’ve settled next to a farm field in Wisconsin. The Lord blessed us with three children through international adoption. Our son, born in Vietnam, is grown and serves as a U.S. Marine. Our oldest daughter, born in Korea, is a college student majoring in international studies. Our youngest daughter, born in the Philippines, has multiple disabilities and is a source of much laughter and joy in our home.
When I’m not in front of my computer, I enjoy walking my hyperactive Jack Russell terrier mix, reading, cooking, working in my large perennial garden, kayaking, camping, and traveling with my family.
I am also a breast cancer survivor. It has been a journey of deep faith and trust in the Lord, but he has sustained me and granted me healing.
The greatest love in my life is my Lord Jesus. I pray that my writing, as well as my entire life, will be to his honor and glory alone.
