So without further ado, on to Rachel’s Back Talk – Special Edition! RR: Hi Kristi! Thanks for joining me on Rachel’s Back Talk today! To start, when did you know that you wanted to be a writer? KH: I was in elementary school and an author came to visit. He said the book we’d read started as a project in his English class. Being a kid, I heard “I wrote a book in 4th grade” and started thinking I could do it. Several years later, I actually did. RR: That sounds like me! So how would you describe your writing process? Are you more of a planner or...

We love having you hear! You’ve written about many other true historical couples. What drew you to write about Newton and Polly? JH: Like most people, I’m familiar with the song Amazing Grace and knew it was written by John Newton who’d once been an atheist slave trader. I’d even heard a little bit about John Newton’s saving grace moment when he was aboard a ship during a life-threatening storm and cried out to God. However, I’d never heard anything...

So without further ado, on to Rachel’s Back Talk – Special Edition!  RR: Hi Amber! It’s great to have you here today. To start off, when did you know that you wanted to be a writer? AP: Hi, Rachel!! First of all, thank you so much for having me—what a treat to be here! I love this first question. I never really grew up with the idea that I wanted to be a writer, actually. I mean, I loved to daydream and even came up with a few story ideas (which I’ll mention more about in a little bit) but I always figured writing would be too difficult for...

So without further ado, on to Rachel’s Back Talk – Special Edition!  RR: Hi Elizabeth! It is great to have your here at Rachel’s Back Talk today. How did you come up with the idea for From This Moment? EC: I knew that this book was going to have a perma-free novella to introduce it, so I had to design a story big enough to encompass two separate releases. Promotional novellas almost always focus on secondary characters from the main novel while providing a sneak peek at the future lead character. I asked my editor if I could try something a little different. I’ve always been intrigued...

So without further ado, on to Rachel’s Back Talk – Special Edition!   RR: Hi Karen! It’s so great to have you here with us today. With nearly a dozen published books and novellas under your belt now, is it challenging to find new story ideas that feel fresh in a genre as popular as historical romance? KW: Yes, it is very challenging. In fact, I don’t think of myself as a naturally creative person. Many authors I talk to have drawers full of ideas that they’ve filed away for future stories. Me – well, I deal with one idea at a time. Often my inspiration comes from books...

So without further ado, on to Rachel’s Back Talk – Special Edition!  RR: Hi Jennifer! Thank you for joining me here today. To start off today, when did you know that you wanted to be a writer? JS: I’ve always enjoyed writing, and as a kid, teachers and adults often told me I was a good writer, but I never really considered it as a career. But then one day, as I was brainstorming a story for a ministry I was involved in, I realized my enjoyment of writing went much deeper than I’d thought–I found it deeply fulfilling. After that, I began to dabble more consistently in writing, then...
