Title: UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN
Author: Renee Collins
Release Date: November 3, 2015
Pages: 336
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time 

Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it's his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making. 

As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence's life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever. 



Now on to the interview!

Hi Renee! First I want to say welcome back to Two Chicks on Books! I am looking forward to UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN and I know my readers are as well and am so happy that you could stop by for a visit!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN and the characters?

Until We Meet Again is a love story of two people living in the same house, one hundred years apart. In a twist of fate, they can see each other on the property’s private beach. Cassandra is a girl trying to find herself in the chaos of our modern world. Lawrence lives in an era where his life has been carefully laid out for him. In spite of the differences between their times, they connect over a shared passion for art and beauty. When Cassandra discovers a terrible truth about Lawrence, their days together suddenly become a race against the clock.

Is this book a stand alone or part of a series and if it
s a series do you have a title yet for book 2?

Definitely a stand alone book. That said, I’m working with Sourcebooks on putting out another love story next year.

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?

Well, Lawrence was definitely inspired by my real life dream guy. Does that count? ;) I would definitely say that there is some high school Renee in Cassandra. I was maybe a touch less angsty, but only just barely.

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

I enjoyed writing Lawrence. It was awesome to spend time with him and bring him to life on the page. But at the same time, his viewpoint chapters were my most difficult to write. I not only had to capture an accurate teenage male voice, but one from the 1920’s. Practically every word he spoke was carefully chosen.

What is your favorite passage/scene in UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN?

I loved writing the scene where Cassandra and Lawrence spend the whole night together on the beach. Lawrence makes Cassandra put aside any discussion of the mystery, and so they got to just spend time together and be all cute and romantic.

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

I had to do quite a bit of research into the way people spoke in the 1920’s. I wanted to make sure Lawrence never sounded modern. You can’t lay it on too thick, though. I tried to add just the right amount of 20’s slang to flavor Lawrence’s speech.

What are you reading right now? Or what do you have on your TBR that you
re dying to read?

I’m currently reading Mysteries of Cove by my good friend J. Scott Savage. But I’m dying to read Walk the Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson. Gotta support the YA Westerns!

Who is your ultimate Book Boyfriend?

Jay Gatsby. Shocking, right? ;)

What inspired you to write YA?

Honestly, I don’t think I ever even considered writing in a different genre at first. The stories that came to me at first always involved a teen protagonist. I’ve since had adult characters squeeze their way into my brain, but it’s still a mostly teenage territory.

Lightening Round Questions

Twitter or Facebook?

Facebook

Favorite Superhero?

Loki. But maybe that’s only because of Tom Hiddleston.

Favorite TV show?

Game of Thrones

Sweet or Salty?

Both! Paired together. (Example: French fries and Dr Pepper. YUM)

Any Phobias?

I wouldn’t call it a phobia, but swimming in very deep water freaks me out.

Song you cant get enough of right now?

Renegade by X Ambassadors

Upcoming Movie youre most looking forward to?

Star Wars 7!


Thanks so much Renee for answering my questions!
