Queen of rural romance is back at it again. Rachael Johns talks to Cheryl Akle about why writing is a job, how she juggles motherhood and writing, and why she found it important to talk about motherhood – particularly around the issue of infertility – in her latest book, The Greatest Gift.
Podcast Guest: Rachael Johns
Rachael Johns is an English teacher by trade, a supermarket owner by day, a mum 24/7, and a writer by night. She lives in rural Western Australia with her hyperactive husband and three mostly-gorgeous heroes-in-training. At 17 she began writing, enlightened by the thought that she could create whatever ending she liked, and almost a decade later, after many, many attempts at writing different types of novels, she joined the Romance Writers of Australia association. It was there that Rachael learnt there was more to writing a book than just typing out random thoughts. She learnt about the craft, conflict, consistent characters, etc, and also discovered that she LOVED contemporary romance! She is the author of The Kissing Season, Tease Me, Cowboy, Man Drought, Jilted, Outback Dreams, Outback Blaze, Outback Ghost, The Next Season (ebook), and The Road to Hope.
