The second book in Romily Bernard’s Find Me series is out this week! One of many great things about REMEMBER ME (and the series) is that its protagonist is a sharp, female hacker- not exactly a character type we see too often, but we should! REMEMBER ME is rife with the dark, sticky stuff as well as romance. What’s not to like? Thanks for being here, Romily!
YA Series Insiders: Besides your main character, do you secretly have a soft spot for another character?
Romily Bernard: Milo!! What’s not to love about a hot, smart, and FUNNY guy?
YASI: Who is your favorite character to write and why?
RB: Milo again! He got all the best lines and his reasons to refuse to play by the rules were so seductive
YASI: Who would you want to play your main character in a movie?
RB: Emma Stone
YASI: What motivates you to write even when you don't feel up to it?
RB: Heh. Pure drive. I don’t believe in muses—at least I don’t believe in mine. I force myself through my 2k words a day even if I have to beat my head against my desk to do it.
YASI: What scene made you cry while you were writing?
RB: Actually…the last scene in TRUST ME. That’s the third book for the series and it caught me completely by surprise. I had an unexpected twist and an unexpected emotional response and I NEVER cry. Ever. I tell people it’s because my heart is made of tar.
YASI: Did you write yourself into any corners?
RB: All the time. Unfortunately, that’s the way I work
YASI: Any advice for writers currently working on a series?
RB: Make yourself a Book Bible. It’s a place you’ll keep all your character and setting descriptions. If you’re really smart, you’ll also include outlines from previous books so you can quickly assess what you’ve done before.
YASI: If you could pull one thing from your series world to have in real life, what would it be?
RB: Griff. He’s actually based on my husband so this answer is kind of cheating, but yeah I’d pull Griff.
About the Book
In the sequel to FIND ME, Wick Tate, sarcastic teen hacker, is back and once again dealing with criminals and corrupt cops…and a brooding new love interest. Will Wick persevere when some secrets refuse to stay hidden?
Wick had thought her troubles were over.
But she should’ve known better.
Not only is she embroiled in a new murder case, which starts with a body with “Remember Me” carved into it and doesn’t stop there, but she also discovers new evidence surrounding her mother’s suicide…which leads her right back to her imprisoned deadbeat dad. And she has to deal with her flirty new hacker friend, Milo, sniffing around—which her boyfriend, Griff, isn’t too happy about.
The pressure might be too much as secrets—including Wick’s own—climb to the surface.
REMEMBER ME is an edge-of-your-seat thrilling read that’ll have readers turning the pages at lightning speed! The paperback of FIND ME is on sale simultaneously, and a digital original novella from Romily, featuring Griff, is on sale just a few weeks before!
