Amazon gift card and the return of author Krysten Lindsay Hager

Welcome back to the blog, Krysten Lindsay Hager! I discovered her thanks to a connection with Diana Anderson-Tyler, whose name might sound familiar if you follow the blog.

Krysten writes about friendship, self-esteem, fitting in, frenemies, crushes, fame, first loves, and values.

Who would have thought that daydreaming in math class would pay off for Krysten down the road? I can tell you that I paid attention for the most part considering I was going for my math degree! Krysten went a different route...


Dating the It Guy is a standalone story that shows dating life can be complicated. Krysten has an ability to bring real life issues into the fold, bring them to life and teaching you not only a life lesson, but how to trust and love.

Did you date in high school? Well, Dating the It Guy looks into high school dating, gives it the pathos and dilemma that high school kids often feel. You may find that this book might mimic your life or someone's that you know.


Emme is a sophomore in high school who starts dating, Brendon Agretti, the popular senior who happens to be a senator's son and well-known for his good looks. Emme feels out of her comfort zone in Brendon's world and it doesn't help that his picture perfect ex, Lauren seems determined to get back into his life along with every other girl who wants to be the future Mrs. Agretti.

Emme is already conflicted due to the fact her last boyfriend cheated on her and her whole world is off kilter with her family issues. Life suddenly seems easier keeping Brendon away and relying on her crystals and horoscopes to guide her. Emme soon starts to realize she needs to focus less on the stars and more on her senses.

Can Emme get over her insecurities and make her relationship work? Life sure is complicated when you're dating the it guy.

Still curious about the author? Here are a few interview questions with Krysten from last time...

What inspires you to write?
I find inspiration all over. Music, movies, TV shows inspire me and I also find inspiration in everyday life. The idea of making people feel something is inspiring, but also knowing people will find an escape in a story inspires me to write. I know I really appreciate the books that helped me escape during a difficult time.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
Each book has been different. Some have taken years, others about a year.per year. I am doing very well on that goal this year and on track to have about six books release in 2018. However, two of them were already partially written.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
To read as much as you can. It’s one thing that you really must do if you want to write. I also recommend having an idea box or Pinterest board to put story ideas and things that relate to your story.
