Author of the Book That Became Movie Was Once Stocking Hallmark
Greeting Cards and Dreaming of Becoming a Writer
MINFORD, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AnUncommonGrace–Like many aspiring authors, Serena B. Miller dreamed of making a living
as a published writer. Numerous manuscripts were submitted, with
rejection letters the consistent result. To make ends meet, she took a
part-time position 15 years ago with greeting card company Hallmark
restocking cards in stores near her southern Ohio home.
Today, Miller is a multiple award-winning author. Her novel, An
Uncommon Grace, will broadcast Sunday, Feb. 12, 9:00 PM EST on
Hallmark’s Movies and Mysteries channel.
“It’s hard to imagine that Hallmark — the company that helped me when I
was trying to get published — is featuring a movie based on one of my
books,” reflected Miller.
Set in the Amish community, An Uncommon Grace stars Jes
McCallan, Sean Faris and Kelly McGillis.
“Grace Connor, a military nurse formerly stationed in Afghanistan, hopes
that moving to a farm in rural Ohio will help her recover from the
ravages of war. Levi Troyer finds his pacifist beliefs challenged when
he discovers his stepfather has been killed and his mother wounded by an
unknown intruder. Levi and Grace are thrown together when she comes to
his family’s rescue and saves his mother’s life.”
An Uncommon Grace isn’t Miller’s first novel to become a
movie. Her first published novel, Love Finds You In Sugarcreek,
Ohio, was made into a movie in 2014 for the Uplifting Network.
The movie was UPTV’s most watched program at that time.
Five of her novels, including Love Finds You In Sugarcreek, Ohio,
won or were nominated for major writing awards. The Measure of
Katie Calloway received the 2012 RITA Award from the Romance
Writers of America (RWA). A Promise To Love won the 2013
Carol Award and An Uncommon Grace was a 2013 Carol Award
finalist from the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW). Under
A Blackberry Moon was a finalist for the 2014 Christy Award in
the Historical Romance category. Love Finds You In Sugarcreek, Ohio
and A Promise To Love were nominated for the RWA’s
Inspirational Reader’s Choice award. Her other published novels are Hidden
Mercies, Fearless Hope, and A Way of Escape.
