MINFORD, Ohio--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--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.
“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”
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.
