From One Night to Wife by Rachael Thomas - GIVEAWAY

Welcome to Rachel

Hi Rachael thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Writing is something I wanted to do since I was about nine years old and now I combine that with life on a farm in Wales. In the small amount of spare time I have, I enjoy going out and about with my camera – although I’m very definitely a beginner!
What were you like at school?
I enjoyed school and worked as hard as I could, especially as I had to set an example to my three younger brothers. 
Were you good at English?
Yes I loved English, but I was hopeless at Math.
What are you working on at the minute?
Right now, I am in the very early stages of a new story and I am still getting to know my characters.
Do you write every day, 5 days a week or as and when?
I try to write every day and prefer to write in the mornings.
Do you write on a typewriter, computer, dictate or longhand?
I usually write at my computer, but there is just something I love about pencil and paper, so if I’m away from my desk and need to write, that is my choice.
What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book?
In my latest book, From One Night to Wife, it was understanding why Serena didn’t tell Nikos about the baby as soon as she knew.
How long on average does it take you to write a book?
Four months from the very first time I meet my character until I submit it to my editor.

Rachael Thomas Bio
I grew up in the Midlands, but when I moved to Wales, over twenty years ago, I found a place to finally put down roots. I married into a farming family and embarked on a massive learning curve which also saw me learning Welsh when my two children were small.
Writing is something I have always wanted to do and I can still remember the thrill of one of my short stories being held up as an example to the class when I was about nine. It wasn’t until my own children were in school that I seriously started to pursue my dream. I joined a local writing group which met every Monday afternoon and being with like-minded people was the boost I needed.

Reading romance had always been my first love, and just about every short story I wrote was romance, so I decided to write my first book. During that process I also attended my first weekend writing course with Kate Walker and joined the RNA’s fabulous New Writers’ Scheme. A short time later I joined Romance Writers of Australia and learnt a lot from entering their competitions. I sought out courses and you can imagine my joy when I discovered Sharon Kendrick’s course in beautiful Tuscany.

Behind the Scandalous Fa├žade, my So You Think You Can Write entry, is my thirteenth book and although only eight have those magic words ‘the end’ written on them the others are definitely part of the learning process I have enjoyed over the last six years.

I love escaping to distant shores with my characters, entering their glamorous world and feeling all the emotions they experience as they discover their love for one another. A love so strong it will overcome all obstacles eventually, leading to that promised happy ever after.
