I'm a fan of taking long walks on sunny days, browsing through the library on Saturday afternoons, and eating popcorn for lunch. I am a native North Dakotan, a professor at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah, and author of some books: Whoppers: History's Most Outrageous Lies and Liars (YA nonfiction, 2015, Zest); Virginity in Young Adult Literature After Twilight (nonfiction/scholarship, 2015, Scarecrow); and The Predicteds (YA fiction, 2011 Sourcebooks Fire). 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 hate golf, avalanches, and bees.

Why I Chose This BookUm, this book chose me. I love projects. I love productivity books. And I love the kind of “stunt journalism” that requires writers to do crazy things in the service of writing about it.
Elevator Pitch The opposite of lazy is not busy. In fact, lazy and busy are quite often synonymous states of being.
Reasons to Read ItI loved that Bailey provided useful tips for producti... Read more of this blog post »

“We're cool," I say calmly, although I feel something else. I feel... sad. Like I've lost something I never quite had.”
Christine Seifert, The Predicteds

“What else did he say?” Jesse insists, and for the second time ever, I feel uneasy with him.

“Nothing,” I say.

“Daphne, they say I’m predicted, but there has to be some mistake. That’s not who I am.”

“I’m hearing a lot about who you are.”

“And you’re saying that you believe it all?”

“Jesse, I don’t know.”
Christine Seifert, The Predicteds

“Hey," he calls after I walk away. I stop and turn just a few feet from him.

"I'm glad you..." He trails off. "I'm glad you're okay."

"Me too." I look over the tops of my sunglasses. "Me too," I repeat.”
Christine Seifert, The Predicteds
