Goodreads asked Jane E. James:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Jane E. James WHY I WROTE 'THE LONG WEEKEND'

The emotions in this story felt very real to me and I could relate to my main character's dysfunctional relationship with her children as I know from personal experience what it is like to be estranged from one's own children. I cried a lot writing the book.
