Talk to each other! I thought it was meant to be romance?

was out with my son, his wonderful wife and two adorable children the other evening. We were having a meal at a nice, but not overly exclusive, restaurant.

It was a wonderful evening that was enjoyed by all and..the best bit? I wasn’t paying!

Anyway, I am digressing from my story... 

While we were eating, a young married couple entered and they were shown to their table. Other than looking at them enter and noticing what a happy, good-looking couple they were I didn’t think I was paying them any attention. Turns out I was wrong. I was paying a lot of attention to them, and over our coffee it hit me why I was subconsciously doing it. 

The whole time they were in the restaurant they were doing something wrong. Something that so many young people today seem to do. 

As opposed to looking at each other and making conversation. They were looking at their phones! 

I wanted to get up, go over and tell them straight. “You are meant to be in love! What about a bit of romance?” I’m not talking about some grand gesture; there was no need to hire a violin player to serenade them over dinner. But a bit of eye contact and conversation surely that isn’t too much to ask. 

If I were a young girl today that is what I would want. I certainly wouldn’t want a life where I was staring a little screen for most of the day.

This is probably one of the reasons I write about romance in the Amish community. The simple things are always so well appreciated. There are certainly no cell phones to distract them during courtship. 

I hate to say it but I think the old art of romance is dead.

Amish Author Hannah Schrock’s New Website

For me this this is rather hard to believe. 

I have a website! 

For those that have followed my journey over the last few years as an author, you will probably find it as hard to believe as me. For those that are new to me, you need to know that my tech skills aren't those of a 22 year old. I do get myself in a pickle sending out emails about my books on occasion. Now I'm being let loose with blog posts.... it could all end very badly. 

Anyways...

Welcome to my website. From here I will be communicating with all of my lovely readers. 

I'll probably be doing one or two blog posts a week. I still have to find the time for the actually writing of my books you know. 

The first thing you should do, if you haven't already, is download my free story. The Amish Quilt Maker. The clever people (not me) have ensured that you will be able to get it straight on your kindle, tablet or e-reader. Pop your details in the box below and get reading!
