Welcome author of A Field of Forget-me-nots, Rachel A. James

What is your writing schedule like?
When I begin a new writing project, I often start with the title. It usually comes to me very easily, and serves as a writing prompt which kickstarts the writing process and acts as a catalyst for the entire story. On this occasion, however, my editor commissioned me to write a novella with the theme “Whatever is Noble” based upon the Scripture in Phillipians 4:8. So that was my starting point. I didn’t have a title to begin with, but as the story developed, the image of a field of forget-me-nots, began to play an important part in the heart of the heroine, Georgiana. It served as a metaphor, for loss, hope, and love, and then the title just came to me.
How did you come up with your title?
As a pastor’s wife, and mother of three girls, my time is very precious. When the children were young, I’d write during naps times, but now that they’re all of school age, I try to write between 9 and 3 whilst they’re at school. I say ’try’, because the Christian ministry does not always stick to a schedule! So I tend to split my writing time and church responsibilities fifty/fifty, but it often means if I miss a couple of hours of writing in the day, I like to make up for it in the evening. The kids don’t get to bed early like they used to, but they’re generally quiet enough for me to get a little work done!
What do you do when you're not writing?
When I’m not writing, or serving in church, or being ‘mum’ and all that that entails… I like to read, watch movies and explore the English countryside. Oh, and tea. I simply love finding new places to drink tea.
