Beverly Lewis was always a creative person her entire life. She was born in Lancaster Pennsylvania, which is where the many of the Amish folks live. Beverly's dad was a pastor in Lancaster as well. It's no wonder that Beverly knows so much about the Amish people growing up right along with them. If you have read Beverly's books, you will notice that all are centered around the lives of Amish people and how they live. I have always found them very interesting. As you read any of Beverly's books, you can actually picture the Amish settings, and lives. Once I pick up one of her books, I find it rather hard to put it down.
When Beverly was 9 years of age, she was already a storyteller. She enjoyed creating poetry and short stories at that age. Impressively, one of Beverly's stories was quite long when she wrote about a young girl that wasn't able to keep going to piano lessons since her parents couldn't afford them. Beverly titled that 77 page work as, "She Shall Have Music." It seemed clear in that story that Beverly was born to be a writer. As a child she also enjoyed reading a lot of books and playing her piano.
It was many years away from that childhood, until Beverly would be able to get her writing published. First of all, she became married to David Lewis, and they had three children. The writing didn't come until her children were much older, and it was then that Beverly became serious about her work. She started out with sending her manuscripts to magazines first of all, most all of which were publications for children. Beverly has numerous stories that were published for youth known as the Cul-de-Sac Series. The first book came out in 1995, known as "The Double Dabble Surprise." Following, there were 24 books in that series. Other series for kids written by Beverly are Girls Only Series, the Holly's Heart Series, and Summerhill Secrets Series.
Beverly tried her hand at writing adult fiction by creating an trilogy known as The Heritage of Lancaster County. The first book in her Lancaster County Series is "The Shunning," which I highly recommend. That first book was published in 1997. Beverly has won many awards for many of her books.
At the present time, Beverly lives in Colorado with her husband. They both have other favorite hobbies that they enjoy, and to date, have three grandchildren.
