    Interview with Olene Quinn, Author of Christmas in Harmony Ridge

    What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Christmas in Harmony Ridge?

    I had been thinking a great deal about what family means to me when I decided to write this novel. In my life, blood ties have been at times meaningless and at times agonizing. My true family and my greatest comfort has been the people who tell me the truth (even when I don’t want to hear it) and who show up for me (especially when I need them most). Those are the people I admire, emulate, and treasure.

    If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Christmas in Harmony Ridge, what would they be?

    Becca: Let No Man Steal Your Thyme

    Mikhail: Love Without End, Amen

    What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

    I love sweet romance & historical fiction, so I write both! I’m planning on combining them soon…

    What books are on your TBR pile right now?

    Captain Blood, The House on the Strand, Twice Shy

    What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

    My favorite moment in the book is when Becca hugs her grandmother and grandfather in the kitchen. It might be unconventional for a romance novel, but this short scene actually marks the turning point in her character arc and without it, she would never get her HEA.

    Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

    I sometimes listen to the same song on repeat when I am writing a tricky scene. I associate the song with the emotions in the scene so that when I come back to work on it later, I can turn on the song and get right back into the same headspace.

    Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

    If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

    I hope this book evokes that wonderful, rare security you get when you know you can really let your guard down around another person.
