Allison Wynn Scotch is the author of a fantastic new book called Between Me and You. Today we chat about her new book and the unique narrative style she chose, how she got started in writing, writing for magazines, her mother’s vocab lists she had to do even while at summer camp, her love of books, and much more.
When your past and present pull you in opposite directions, how do you decide on a future?
New York Times bestselling author Allison Winn Scotch deftly explores this question in her highly anticipated seventh novel, BETWEEN ME AND YOU (Lake Union; on-sale January 9, 2018), an honest and touching story of falling in and out of love, told from two perspectives—one rewinding history, one moving it forward—and each with bias and regret.
When they first meet, screenwriter Ben Livingston is on the brink of success and Tatum Connelly is a struggling actress tending bar in New York City. Young, ambitious, and full of promise, Ben and Tatum fall for each other—hard. They marry, become parents, and focus only on the future. But, as the years pass, Tatum’s stardom skyrockets as Ben’s fades and their relationship becomes strained both by jealousy and resentment and by the challenges of life in the spotlight. At a crossroads, they’re forced to reflect on a life of passion, joy, tragedy, and loss. And as the pieces of their past come together, Ben and Tatum come to see how it all went wrong—and wonder if it’s possible to make it right.
