1. a feeling of having already experienced the present situation


Déjà Vu is a story I've been working on, on and off for a long time!  So I'm incredibly excited (and very nervous!) to finally be sharing it with you here on Wattpad.  The story started with a character- Ryan, and at the time all I knew about him was that he really, REALLY hated mornings!  In the twelve years since he first popped into my head, I've got to know him a lot better and hopefully you guys will now too.

Déjà Vu is set entirely in North Wales and all the locations mentioned in the story actually exist in real life (although I've changed the names, to avoid angry villagers with pitchforks turning up at my door!)  Just kidding, but in all seriousness, the lake that Ryan lives next to is pictured above ^^ I took that photograph almost exactly two years ago, when I was busy editing Déjà Vu and visited the village Ryan lives in to make sure I'd got all the details just right (spoiler alert- I hadn't!  But I like to think I have now).  There are a few points in the book where some of the characters speak in Welsh very briefly, but I'll make sure to include author notes at the end of those chapters with the translations.

This is my first story on Wattpad, and I am definitely down for reader comments/messages and people pointing out typos/mistakes (although I'm hoping there won't be too many!) And if you do enjoy the story please remember to vote!

The only thing I'm really not down for is plagiarism, so please- don't copy any parts of the story/post the story anywhere else, and if you're aware of anyone who does this, report them.  As anyone who writes knows, it takes a lot of time and effort to write a story and a lot of courage to then share it, so please respect that.  Thank you :)

The first chapter will be posted this Friday (24th February) and I'll be posting new chapters every Monday and Friday.  The story is already complete but I'm tweaking/editing as I go to try and make sure it's the best it can be for my lovely readers.

Thanks so much for reading this far- I really hope you like the book!
