Blog Tour - Timeless

Today we have a Character Interview from Drew.
Welcome Drew, nice to meet you. I have some questions for you so lets start. 
1) How old were you when you first learnt that you had been reincarnated and what was your first thought?
I was 14 when I went on the trip to England and met my Memory Guide, Misty, for the first time. That ignited my memories from the past, but I didn’t realize the memories were real until I saw Lizzie when I walked into the European History classroom at Beech Tree. I don’t remember what my exact first thought was, but the whole time I was sitting in class, I was shocked that she existed.
2) When you realized Lizzie might be reincarnated too, did you immediately want to find her or did you try to put it out of your mind?
I didn’t realize Lizzie was real until seeing her for the first time. I thought she was some made up fantasy, and before I met her I was constantly searching for a girl as good as the one in my dreams.
3) When did you first realize that Lizzie was the one for you?
I knew the moment I first saw her. But when I realized she was real, I also realized that the flashes I had of us together in the past were real, too. I knew how that ended, and I couldn’t allow the same thing to happen again.
3) If you loved Lizzie so much, why did you start to date Chelsea?
It was a stupid decision—I should have thought it through further. In the moment, I knew I wanted to be near Lizzie, but that I could never allow us to truly be together, because I didn’t want her to suffer the same end she did in the past. She was persistent, though. I know how girls think—that it goes against their “code” or whatever to go after your best friend’s boyfriend, so I figured the best way to be around Lizzie without her thinking there was a chance anything could happen between us was to date her best friend.
4) If you felt being together or being close to Lizzie was dangerous why did you choose Chelsea to date, surely you knew that would cause trouble? Or did you genuinely like Chelsea for a bit?
I knew that being in a relationship with Lizzie was dangerous, and I thought being in a relationship with Chelsea would prevent anything from happening with me and Lizzie. In the end, it was too hard to fight the connection I felt with her. Looking back, I probably should have stayed away from her altogether, but that’s harder than it sounds. I’m just glad things worked out like they did.
5) How many houses do you actually own (or your family own)?
Four. There’s the house in Pembrooke, New Hampshire, the one in Aspen, the one in Palm Beach, and the condo in Manhattan. My dad’s currently living in the condo in Manhattan, and my mom and I are in the house in Pembrooke. The Palm Beach house was so we could have somewhere to go while visiting my grandparents (we go there during winter break sometimes, too). The house in Aspen is for ski vacations, which we go on every March during spring break.
6) If you could give Lizzie one gift, what would it be?
To know that she is 100% safe in her current life.
7) If you could change one thing about your past (current life) what would it be and why?
I’m happy with where I am now, so I wouldn’t change anything. I wouldn’t want to risk not being where I am today.
8) Do you believe in Fairytale endings and Happily Ever Afters? Will you and Lizzie get yours?
I wouldn’t put it quite as “fairytale endings and happily ever afters,” but after my experiences I believe that we’re responsible for shaping our own destiny. If I want my life to end well, it’s up to me to make it happen. I will make sure that everything works out well between me and Lizzie.
9) If you could choose to live either in 1815 Regency England or in the Present Day, which you prefer and why?
Present day. There are too many formalities and rules in 1815 England. It was also a hassle to do anything—especially getting from place to place—without modern day technology.
Thank you, Becky, for having me on your blog for the Timeless blog tour!

About the Author

  Michelle Madow was inspired to write Remembrance after seeing Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video while a junior at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. The song and video gave her the story idea about a high school girl reincarnated from Regency Era, England. She handed in the first chapter as a homework assignment for class, and when her teacher and classmates wanted her to continue writing, she decided to go for it. By the end of the school year, her first novel was completed!

Michelle graduated from the Park School of Baltimore in 2005, where she always took two English classes each semester. She graduated from Rollins College in 2010, cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in English. At Rollins she was a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and a member of the International English Honor Society Sigma Tau Delta.

She received the Charles Hyde Pratt Award for Excellence in Creative Writing in 2010.

Michelle lives in Florida, where she is hard at work writing more novels for young adults.
