Road to Harmony is a historical romance set in a small dairy farming community in Harmony Valley, California in 1907.

A cattle thief is loose in the valley, and Elena Seifert wants to help her father guard his dairy farm, but everyone thinks that’s a man’s job. When her childhood sweetheart returns to Harmony, her heart is torn between Jonas Bollinger, her secret love, and Lars Rissler, the wealthy middle-aged storeowner her parents hope she marries.

Jonas Bollinger never imagined he’d be back in Harmony Valley, but his pa isn’t well. When Jonas makes a promise he wishes he didn’t have to keep, he is torn between loyalty to his family and the woman he has loved since he was a boy. Will Elena and Jonas find the inner peace to choose love and still do what is best for their families?


What genre do you focus on and why?

I enjoy writing stories, both historical romance and contemporary women’s fiction, that connect people together, whether it be families, long-lost loves, or childhood sweethearts. There’s something about that re-connection that speaks to me. I also write books for kids, specifically for the tween market, because I still connect with that inner child within.


Why do you write? What drives you?

I have a big imagination and love to be creative! More than that, however, I want to share how much God loves us and what better way than through story. It’s how Jesus connected with people, and it’s the best way to bring others to him.


Who is your main character, and how did you choose that name?

My main character is Elena Seifert, and I chose that Swiss name because Swiss immigrants settled in the town of Harmony in the late 19th century. Plus, I like how it sounds. I think it has a nice ring to it.


What does a day in your writing world look like?

Right now my youngest is a senior in high school, so my schedule is determined by where I need to drive her—to school, events, etc. I try to write 1000 words a day, but it depends on the project I’m working on. Right now I’m writing a lot of articles, guest blog posts, and blog interviews to spread the word about Road to Harmony.


What is the hardest part of being an author? Why?

My most difficult writing obstacle right now is finding my own space to write! At our former home, I had a writing shed, a little room all to my own, that I could sneak off to and focus on my writing. Our new home provided the bedrooms for my kids, but has an open floor plan, which makes it hard for me to concentrate. So when I’m on deadline, I end up at a coffeehouse. Currently, I’m researching how to add a sunroom addition to our home. Wouldn’t that make a cool office?


What’s the best part of your author’s life? Why?

The best part of an author’s life is connecting with readers and making new friends! Come find me on social media.


What is your favorite pastime?

I enjoy decorating our beach home. I love watching HGTV and really get inspired to let my creativity flow. For example, we have a wall between our dining and family room that is ten feet long and twelve feet high. Even after my husband painted it three times, I still wasn’t happy with it. I researched the Internet, and discovered a product to make new wood appear to have a weathered finish. That was it. I wanted a wood wall! We purchased tongue and groove pine boards and had them cut into 2’, 3’, and 4’ sections, and I stained each piece—twice! I also put on a coat of polyurethane to seal it. My husband and younger son helped me put it up one afternoon. And I love it! It’s just the thing we needed to add warmth and coziness to the room. Besides decorating, I enjoy taking a walk every afternoon so my Fitbit (and body) is happy!


Do you have other books? We’d love to know.

Yes, I have three other novels in print, another historical romance, and two contemporary women’s fiction. I also write books for tween girls. The Girl’s Guide to Life and Love, Lexi: Letters to God, are my newest titles.


What are you working on now?

Last month I completed a tween devotional, and right now I’m doing a lot of reading to get inspiration for my next novel.
