Who Will It Be?

About Me

My photo
I am a native North Dakotan, a professor at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah, and a YA writer. My first book, The Predicteds, is due out from Sourcebooks Fire in September. I'm represented by Alyssa Eisner Henkin of Trident Media Group. When I'm not writing or teaching writing, I'm an avid reader and an enthusiastic listener of podcasts (especially podcasts about books). I'm a fan of taking long walks on sunny days, browsing through the library on Saturday afternoons, and watching embarrassingly bad TV at any time. My favorite color is lunch.

Book Readers

The best thing about writing a book is hearing from readers. I luuuurve to talk about books with anyone who will participate in the conversation. And there's a lot of conversation out there. I can't believe I just discovered book bloggers! Where have I been since 1998?? The only downside is that I never get anything done anymore. It takes me all day just to keep up with everyone's reviews and discussions. I need an assistant to do my actual work. (Anyone want to teach my class this summer? Takers?)

Every day I discover a new great blog. Today's great find is Amanda who just reviewed The Predicteds. I love that she mentions the themes that I was wrestling with as I wrote the book.

You should go read her blog.

Then you should really consider teaching my summer class for me.


  1. Christine - Thanks for the wonderful words. Would you be interested in doing an author interview or a guest post for my blog?

  2. Hi, Amanda. Sure. I'd love to do an author interview or a guest post. Whatever works for you. Just contact me with details. (You can find me on Goodreads or at christy dot seifert at yahoo.


  3. Is your book out? Can I download it to the iPad? I want to read it!

  4. I'm really looking forward to The Predicteds. If you're interested and have the time I'd also love to do an interview and/or guest post. Contact me any time :-)
