Welcome to the blog, Kathleen. I’m so excited to have you here today. Congratulations on your recent release, Harmony on the Horizon. I’ve loved seeing the journey of this series unfold and I’m so happy to celebrate this launch with you!

What do you love most about your hero and heroine in this story?

I love that even though their hearts are in the right places, they don’t always make the right choices and have to learn some tough lessons which I can relate to.

Have you visited any of the historical sites from your book? If not, what places are at the top of your list to visit someday?

Yes, I have actually visited all of the real locations which inspired the settings in Harmony on the Horizon. I have especially enjoyed numerous trips to the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.

That’s so cool! I love visiting real life locations that are mentioned in my favorite stories. 🙂

What will you remember most about writing this book?

How terrified I was that everyone would hate it. LOL That, and the hours upon hours of research and editing I did to make sure Katie’s dialect was just right for her character.

Haha! I wonder if authors ever get over that feeling? I know I’m just as nervous about people reading my work. 🙂

Can you share with us a few upcoming book releases you’re looking forward to reading this year?

You know, I usually have a whole list of anticipated releases, but I’ve been so busy I haven’t added them all to my calendar yet and can’t quite remember all the titles. The ones that come to mind at the moment are Crystal Caudill’s debut novel, Counterfeit Love, Rachel Fordham’s 2022 release, Where the Road Bends, Toni Shiloh’s In Search of a Prince, Francine River’s The Lady’s Mine, and Jen Turano’s To Disguise the Truth.

Ohhh, those are some great ones! 🙂

Since we just rang in a new year, what is something you’re looking forward to in 2022?

I’m very excited to be working on a new novella as well as book four in my Chaparral Hearts series. On a more personal level, my eldest child will be taking his driver’s test this year and I’m anticipating sending him on errands to “practice” driving. 😉

That’s exciting, Kathleen! Both the new stories AND the driving child. 🙂

I’m so glad you could join us today. Is there anything else you’d like to add? Any upcoming projects you can share with us?

I’m planning to have my new Chaparral Hearts novella edited, formatted, and available to readers by the end of 2022. I’ll be offering it for free to my Kathleen’s Readers’ Club Members as I do my Chaparral Hearts prequel novella. The link to sign up can be found on my website: www.KathleenDenly.com.
