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). 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 ...more

The only problem is that Jackson Parrish is already married to a beautiful and accomplished woman, Daphne, whom he adores. That doesn’t deter Amber, though. She insinuates herself into Daphne’s life, becomes her very best friend, and begins to rip at th...

“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
