Twilight meets Eleanor and Park in this contemporary romance story about a love that insists on forever.

When Lenora Baker and Nathan Roqué run into each other in their boarding school courtyard, they have no idea that they are about to begin a journey that will take them the rest of their lives to recover from. Both scarred from parents who were once in love but ended up destroying each other, they are sworn off the possibility that there can truly exist a love that will never end.

But when with each other they find a passion so strong that it heals as powerfully as it burns, a love that will run out is no longer an option for them. Together, they discover just how far they are willing to go to preserve what they know they will only find once in their lifetime.

This is the start of their journey, and here you will come to realize, that falling in love is only the first part of the story...

Hi Omoye! Thanks for stopping by on the blog!! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? :)
Thank you for having me. Well first things first, I never knew I was going to be a
writer. I grew up reading practically any book that I could get my hands on, and
more than the escape that they gave to me, they also gave me the desire to
dream. The exposure that books give you is one of the most priceless gifts that
anyone can get from them , but that is if they’re open enough to receive it. It makes
you believe that the world is your oyster, and that mindset is the beginning to a
fulfilling life without boundaries. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Estate
Management from Covenant university in Nigeria, and currently, I’m undertaking my
postgraduate studies at Lancaster University in England. ‘ The Beginning of
Never’ is a contemporary romance novel but really, my favorites are historical
romances. I’m fascinated by the lifestyle of people from centuries ago. One more
thing, I love Korean dramas. Their stories I find are the ones that are able to capture
my attention more than any others in the world. There is a honesty, and richness to
them that leaves the greatest impact on me. I think they’re absolutely amazing.

Many novels are inspired by a single question.  Was there one that sparked The Beginning of Never?
Yes! I read all sorts of books but my favorite books would always be the ones
that have some romantic element in it. However, I understand that sometimes the
love stories portrayed in these books are not realistic, and are so different from
what we actually see happen in real life. Books all talk about the ‘falling in love
stage’ of any relationship, and while that is wonderful, it is not the whole story. In
fact, in real life, that is the easiest part of the story,and unfortunately for most
people,the best part. So the question I wanted to answer in ‘The Beginning of
Never’ was this: what would happen if two people met and swore that they were never going fall out of love with each other? And what were the actions that they would take to ensure that their love never ran out? At the beginning of the book,I wanted to find the answers to these questions, and so far I’ve gotten some very wonderful answers.

Describe your book in 5-7 words for us.
Unique, Intense, Honest, inspiring, Entertaining, and captivating .

How did you decide your novel’s book cover? Which, by the way, is very gorgeous!!
Thank you. Well the cover designer tried all sorts of themes to best capture the
essence of the novel, but we couldn’t find the perfect one so we decided to go with
something simple but yet different. The Magenta color of the cover is one that I
haven’t really seen on a lot of books so we decided that that would be the best fit
for it . You’ll completely grasp the feel of the image when you read some certain
scenes in the book. ‘No spoilers’. All in all, since we couldn’t complicate the cover, we decided to make it simple but different, just like its story.

How would you introduce your main character to us?
The main character in this book is Lenora Grace Baker and to me, she represents the
essence of teenage turbulence. But one thing she isn’t is insecure, because she’s
been through too much in her life to be. She is unhappy, but her pure-heartedness
and bravery is one that will make her grow on you. This is the girl you’re introduced
to: a careless, and short-tempered girl who believes that the best way to avoid
pain is to avoid people. But as the story progressed, my greatest joy was to see her
transform into a more self-less, brave and happy person. It made me fall completely
in love with her and I’m sure you will too. If I were to compare her to a real life
character, I’d say that the girl that represents Lenora, in both looks and attitude is Lorde. She’s a sixteen year old musician from New Zealand.  

What is the best and hardest parts that you wrote in The Beginning of Never?
The hardest part for me was chapter nineteen,because it captured the essence
of the novel’s message. So I had to write and rewrite it countless times. The best
parts for me were definitely the romantic scenes because of how pure and
unbelievably intense they were. Writing them brought goose pimples all over my skin.

About the Author
I currently live in England. My days are spent in the Project Management field while my nights are spent with books. I'm either reading them or writing the ones that I want to read. My favorite things and in this particular order are books, Korean dramas, ice cream, and people who smile through everything. I consistently tell people that these are the four things they need to be happy but do they believe me?
No! Well I believe me, and you should too.
