Sean too leaves New York for Ireland, where he is caught up in the lives of people who not only know all about Michael Corrigan but have a score to settle. As his connection to his uncle grows stronger, he realizes that within the tattered journal he carries lies the story of his "own" life his past as well as his future and the key to finding the one woman he is fated to love forever.
With the appeal of "The Time Traveler s Wife" and the classic "Time and Again," this novel is a romance cloaked in mystery and suspense that takes readers inside the rich heritage of Irish history and faith. "Until the Next Time" is a remarkable story about time and memory and the way ancient myths affect everything from what we believe to who we love.

In his debut novel, screen and television writer Fox has a fresh and fascinating take on an absorbing concoction of myth, belief, memory, identity, reincarnation, and the lasting power of love. On his 21st birthday, Sean Corrigan wakes to his dad handing him a gift: his uncle’s journal. Both the journal and the uncle are news to Sean, who soon learns why he’d never heard of uncle Michael: he fled to Ireland after killing a black civil rights worker and was then killed for working with the IRA. The journal sends Sean on a journey to Ireland that’s more than a trip to the old country to meet the family he never knew and find out what really happened. It’s about peeling away layers of memory and learning “WHO HE IS.” Accelerating chapters alternate between Sean’s present journey and his uncle’s diary and begin to flow together as more is revealed to both men. Although at times the book has the feel of an episode of Lost, it is both entertaining and provocative. Agent: Mollie Glick, Foundry Literary + Media. (Feb.)
