When skilled weaver, Gwen Hywel, is commissioned to create a tapestry for the MacFhearguis clan she embraces the assignment. While seeking out ideas, she finds herself clutching the one thread that can alter the tapestry of her heart and life.

Inspiration for a Series by Mary Morgan
As a writer, I can be inspired by anything—from a song, an old photograph, or watching a weaver work on her loom. My new release was a yearning to return home to the Dragon Knights of Scotland and include a very special tapestry.
Yet before I give you a glimpse into the background for To Weave a Highland Tapestry, I must take you back almost two decades…
The Order of the Dragon Knights was created in the Highlands of Scotland on a cool summer evening of June 2000. Sitting alone on a large boulder, I was surrounded by the magic and mists of the land, including a few bleating sheep. The Dragon Knights were born that evening. The awakening and sense of a story overwhelmed me, and I can recall vividly these men and some of their tales. I wove my fascination with Celtic mythology, which began years before my first trip, into these epic stories of men who were part Scottish and Fae.
Now my love affair with Scotland began many decades ago. I blame it on my own bloodline—a yearning to return to the land of my ancestors. I have visited Scotland three times, so I’ve put into my stories what I’ve seen, felt, and experienced. I took a travel journal and wrote daily, which helps in my research, too. In addition, my husband took many wonderful pictures that captured the majestic scenery of Scotland.
In To Weave a Highland Tapestry, I felt it was time to give the hero, Patrick MacFhearguis his own “happy ever after.” He’s been a huge secondary character since my first book and series, Dragon Knight’s Sword, Order of the Dragon Knights. I sensed he was brooding at his home in Scotland. What he needed was a wife and a purpose. In truth, he has been a favorite of mine since he stepped into the first story. I made his castle, Leòmhann, as the center of this love story, along with an ancient yew tree.
Five stories later, a second spin-off series (Legends of the Fenian Warriors, four books), and three Highland holiday romances (A Tale of the Order of the Dragon Knights), I’m sure the Dragon Knights will have more stories to be told. The spark of inspiration took off with this first series and gave birth to other ones, too.
