Synopsis: How many times would you die for love?
What if you had to relive the same five days over and over?
And what if at the end of it, your boyfriend is killed…
And you have to watch. Every time.
You don’t know why you’re stuck in this nightmare.
But you do know that these are the rules you now live by:
Now, the only way to escape this loop is to attempt something crazy. Something dangerous. Something completely unexpected. This time…you’re not going to run.
Combining heart-pounding romance and a thrilling mystery Never Apart is a stunning story you won’t soon forget.
1. Where did you come up with the idea for Never Apart?
Basically, I got an image of a girl running for her life through a swamp. Then I had to figure out a book to explain why.
2. Who is your favorite character in the book?
Probably Ander. He breaks my heart.
3. Which scene in the book was your favorite to write? Why?
The first few chapters were actually my favorite. They poured out of me over the course of a day, maybe a day and a half. The rest of the book? Not so much.
4. Are there any parts of the book that weren’t planned, but struck you at the last minute, such as a randomly written plot twist?
Absolutely. Tying the Falls to the ultimate ending? Figuring out who died? All happened while I was sitting in a Chicago hotel room.
5. Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Never give up. I had 246 rejections before my first ‘yes.’ If I can do this, you can do this.
6. What books are currently on your nightstand?
Couple hundred since I switched to reading on my iPad. At moment, I’m alternating between Janet Evanovich’s ONE FOR THE MONEY and Alan Bradley’s THE SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE.
