Link to Review: Until we Meet Again


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.


Interview with Renee Collins

1) did you have to do any research while writing Until we Meet Again?

I did! I had to do quite a bit of research into the language and slang spoken by Americans in the 1920’s. I needed to make sure the chapters in Lawrence’s viewpoint were as authentic as possible.

2) What was your favorite read in 2015?

I read so many great books. It’s hard to pick! But I always love Kasie West books and The Fill-In Boyfriend did not disappoint.

3) What was your favorite scene to write?

I loved writing the scene where Lawrence and Cassandra spend the whole night together on the beach. With all the intense scenes and scenes unraveling the mystery, it was nice to write one that was purely romantic. What can I say, I’m a sucker for love scenes.

4) What is your next project going to be and is Until We Meet Again a standalone?

Until We Meet Again is a stand alone novel. But I am working on a new stand alone novel, also a love story, that will hopefully be coming out with Sourcebooks next year!

5) At what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I’ve always been a writer. I filled notebooks with stories and poetry. Though it wasn’t until around eight years ago that I decided to write a full novel and try to get it published.

6) Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Definitely a plotter. I usually write out a sparse outline before I can even put one word on paper. And then, as I write, I usually make out a detailed outline of scenes that are coming up.

7) Who's writing most inspires you?

Many authors inspire me. I dream of crafting exquisite prose, like F. Scott Fitzgerald. I want a plot that keeps people completely hooked, like George R.R. Martin. And I’d love to bring characters to life that people love fiercely, like J.K. Rowling.

8) What is the one place in the world you most want to visit?

I’m a quarter Arab, so I’d love to visit the Middle East and explore my roots.

9) What TV show is a must for you to watch? (for example I can not miss Once Upon a Time)

Game of Thrones. Hands down!

10) Who is the one Author you would love to meet and maybe fangirl over?

Speaking of Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin. And I actually had the chance to live that dream at WorldCon 2015. I met him at a small private party. I managed to keep it together pretty well, but then, as he left the party, he walked by and gave my arm a friendly little squeeze, thanking us all for coming. Flustered and thrilled, I blurted out, “Thank YOU for coming! You’re the coolest!” He gave an amused chuckle and walked away, leaving me to smack my forehead and laugh at myself.

  1. What a wonderful interview! I always love getting an idea for how other writers work and figure their way through their own stories. Also, I feel validated every time I find out another author is a plotter like me? TEAM PLOTTER! Can I just say too that the sideways cover looks absolutely fantastic??? :D
