Nadel writes a wonderful and beautiful love story between two characters. After reading this book, this is the next big book. I want to make sure everyone knows about it. It has all the right makings of a bestseller. The main character is one that you’d love due to her flaws, but also want to cheer her on to find out the truth. Her connection to Austin is one that cannot be denied. She knows that she has seen him before, but she can’t quite place him. The whole story was well written, action packed, and fast paced with tons of energy to keep you turning the pages. An amazing Young adult book that is sure to please those who love young adult books and love stories.

Where are you from? Tell us a little about yourself!
I am an American citizen from France. My father –who passed away in 2009, was a retired psychotherapist. My mother was a Christian Dior model. At a genetically correct 5’4” –yep, my dad was 5’9”, just like my mom, I was fascinated with not only fashion, but acting for film, TV and commercials. At age fifteen, I had a record out in France, but being in front of a camera was never totally my thing. Ever since, my path has been to empower young lives, using children’s psychology and acting methods. Teaching children and watch them grow within a nurturing environment has been the most rewarding thing for me. It is an amazing feeling to be at stand for young lives. That amazing feeling goes right along with losing yourself in the lives of characters and the intricate story which brings them to life. –at least in my head.
Tell us about your book? How did it get started?
I had dreams of ancient love. I would wake up with the image of a young scientist, re-living a love story from the past. She would not only get a second chance at love, but the same tragedy which had claimed her relationship before and kept her and her soul mate apart would unfold itself in the exact same way. During my waken hours, all I could think of was: “What if Heloise and Abelard were reincarnated, and Fulbert was back to hurt them, all over again?” Finally, it became such an obsession, that I had to write it. The plot kept pulling me along through three volumes.
How do you create your characters?
They just speak to me –night and day. They are those little voices in my head. You know, being the daughter of a psychotherapist doesn’t mean that I am totally sane.
What inspires and what got you started in writing?
I have written many screenplays. I am always thinking of stories. I am always wondering: “What if?”
It is part of my life and it is an inherent manifestation of my obsessive personality. If you have an additive personality also, it is better to get hooked on story and exercise, don’t you think?
Where do you write? Is there something you need in order to write (music, drinks?)
Drinks are good, but the buzz would probably not be too productive! I sit at my computer for hours, and when I realize I haven’t eaten all day, I glance out to window and realize it’s night time. When I have an idea, it just starts pouring out of me.
How do you get your ideas for writing?
I don’t. They just come to haunt me.
What do you like to read?
I get lost in other author’s stories in the same way. I read and figure out all the possible outcomes, as I do. I get in trouble and arrive late at key appointments because of books. I had to know what was going to happen to Katniss, for instance.
What would your advice to be for authors or aspiring in regards to writing?
Read, read, read… Write, write, write… Re-write, rewrite and rewrite. And then, edit and re-write.
