The Last Beginning, the sequel to The Next Together, is now out in the UK and Australia!

Sixteen years ago, after a scandal that rocked the world, teenagers Katherine and Matthew vanished without a trace. Now Clove Sutcliffe is determined to find her long lost relatives…

But where do you start looking for a couple who seem to have been reincarnated at every key moment in history? Who were Kate and Matt? Why were they born again and again? And who is the mysterious Ella, who keeps appearing at every turn in Clove’s investigation?

For Clove, there is a mystery to solve in the past and a love to find in the future.

I've been posting behind the scenes goodies over the last week. If you've missed any of them, here is a complete list:

Lauren James was born in 1992. She started writing during secondary school English classes, because she couldn’t stop thinking about a couple who kept falling in love throughout history. She sold the rights to the novel when she was 21, whilst she was still at university.

The Next Together series was published in September 2015 by Walker Books in the UK and Australia. Rights have sold in over five territories worldwide. The book was described by The Bookseller as ‘funny, romantic and compulsively readable’. It was longlisted for the Branford Boase Award, a prize given to recognise an outstanding novel by a first time writer.

Lauren graduated in 2014 from the University of Nottingham, UK, where she studied Chemistry and Physics. She is a passionate advocate of STEM further education, and all of her books feature scientists in prominent roles.

Lauren lives in the West Midlands and is an Arts Council grant recipient.
