A PLACE CALLED HARMONY
[Harmony, Texas series]
In A PLACE CALLED HARMONY readers will be looking at Harmony for the first time. I enjoyed writing about the three men who were brave enough to travel half of Texas to build a town. All three men came to me full and strong as did the women who loved them. From the opening I was running full gallop with a plot. With my great-grandmother’s chest sitting in front of my desk, I felt like I was loading up the wagon and heading for a new life.
Many times during the writing of this story I felt all three men standing behind me telling me their lives. Patrick McAllen, young and full of dreams, thought of it as an adventure and believed love came easy. Clint Truman felt old at thirty and didn’t believe in love. When he heard he had to have a wife to get the job, he went to the prison gate and picked the first woman walking out. And then there was Captain Gillian Matheson who loved his wife but also loved adventure.
All three men were prepared for the challenge of building a town but unprepared for the depth of love they found as they build their families.
When Truman, Matheson and McAllen’s stories began to dance in my mind, I found myself staying up later every night to write more. I love the way the three men interacted and the way all three loves storied grew. I have a feeling that readers will be staying up a little later to read one more chapter.
I felt close to all of them, because my great-grandparents settled this same country over a hundred years ago. My grandmother was even born in a covered wagon.
So follow me through A PLACE CALLED HARMONY you’ll love the story.
Enjoy the adventure,

Desperate to escape his overbearing father, Patrick McAllen disappears with his bride, heading north to build a new town—discovering strength, honor and true love along the way.
After drinking away the grief from his family’s death, Clint Truman avoids jail by taking a job in North Texas and settling down with a woman he vows to protect but never love—until her quiet compassion slowly breaks his hardened heart wide open…
All Gillian Matheson has ever known is Army life, leaving his true love to be a part-time spouse. But when a wounded Gillian returns home to find her desperately fighting to save their marriage, he’s determined to become the husband she deserves.
Amidst storms, outlaws, and unwelcome relatives, the three couples band together to build a town—and form a bond that breathes life into the place that will forever be called Harmony.
