Welcome Izzy James 

Tell us about you and your book.

What is your writing schedule like?
It’s not as regular as I think I would like. (I’m still exploring that thought.) Generally I prefer to write in the morning or late at night. And we are moving right now, which makes pretty much everything up in the air.
How did you come up with your title?
The title for The Dollmaker’s Daughter has it’s roots in The Shopkeeper’s Widow. The heroine of The Shopkeeper’s Widow, Delany Fleet, has a relationship with the hero, Field Archer’s mother. Field’s mother, Ann, makes dolls and he is quite taken aback when he discovers that his mother’s dolls are for sale in Delany’s shop. There is even the suggestion that Ann sent doll clothes to Delany via Field in order to set them up.
Book 2 features Amity Archer, Field’s sister. Amity is adventurous like her mother Ann, but it comes out in a different way.
What makes this book special to you?
This book is special to me because I have been traveling the roads Amity and Simon cover all my life. Research for this novel pulled at me night and day and changed the way I see the physical world around me.
Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
I have a few favorite authors, but my particular favorite right now is Regina Scott. Her books are witty, poignant, and even a good beach read. She mixes lightness and truth. I just love them.
In no more than
Ten (10) words, what is the spiritual takeaway for your reader?

The freedom you seek comes from a life with God.
Is there anything edgy/possibly controversial in your book? If so tell us what that is in
Twenty (20) words or fewer.

Amity frees her slave, Lucy.
What is your hero's main character flaw?
He tends to be inwardly focused and so he can miss outside cues.
What is your heroine's main character flaw?
She is restless and prone to impulsiveness.
What can readers learn from your villain?
That we should take sometime to understand another person’s perspective. We cannot walk in another’s shoes, but we can try to put ourselves in their place. If they are obedient even villains can come to Christ.
What makes your hero heroic?
He is willing to sacrifice anything for his relationship with Amity. He will not however sacrifice his principles.
what makes your heroine heroic?
She is willing to sacrifice to help others.
