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: Factory Girls (YA nonfiction, 2017 Zest); 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).

The Business of Reading

Last semester, I asked students in a professional program to read fiction as part of an experiment. I wanted to see if fiction would prompt discussions relevant to leadership/management in new or different ways than when we read more traditional reading assignments–like a textbook directly related to the topic.

The results were fascinating and heartening. It turn

“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
