Blending the truths of where we find ourselves now with insights into what carried us in the past.


Olivia Newport’s novels twist through time to discover where faith and passions meet. She began publishing fiction in 2012. Curiosity about history seems to creep into everything she does. Her books include Amish, historical, and contemporary stories that span the centuries from before the Revolutionary War right up to the present moment, from seventeenth-century Pennsylvania to nineteenth-century Memphis, from turn-of-the-century Chicago to a cozy Colorado mountain town. Her most recent work includes the Tree of Life series of time-slip books, The Inn at Hidden Run, In the Cradle Lies, When I Meet You, and What You Said to Me. Visit the Book Table for more information on reading selections.

Happily transplanted from the Chicago suburbs where she grew up, Olivia still roots for the Cubs while she chases joy in Colorado at the foot of the Pikes Peak. The number of quilts in her house borders on embarrassing. There’s always room for one more.
