Hadley Daniels’s life seems perfect…

Before the beginning of sophomore year of high school, Hadley and her family move to a beautiful beach town, where she makes amazing new friends and lands the boyfriend of her dreams-Nick Jenkins. He’s the kind of guy every girl swoons over, and it isn’t long until Hadley discovers some are still swooning.

A famous ex-girlfriend makes matters more complicated…

After some time dating, Hadley and Nick form a deep bond. But insecurity sets in when Hadley discovers her boyfriend once had a huge crush on her friend-who just happens to be the beautiful former teen TV star, Simone Hendrickson.

The past is the past-or so they say…

Hadley confronts Nick, who confesses about his history with Simone. Though he claims to only have eyes for Hadley now, it’s hard to believe-especially when she’s blindsided with the news that Nick and Simone kissed after school.

Now Hadley must determine who is telling the truth. Love, betrayal, friendship…who needs soap opera drama when you’re busy competing with a star?

Hi Krysten! Thank you so much for visiting Brooke Blogs today and agreeing to answer a few interview questions for Fast Five at Brooke Blogs!

1) What does your writing space look like?

I just moved this summer so I have a new office with lots of windows! My first time having natural light in my writing space in a long time. I keep a lot of things I’ve been given as gifts on my desk like Pop Funkos, Hello Kitty plushes, and other things I’ve been sent. They make me smile when I look at them. Here’s a pic of my new desk setup.


Brooke’s Side Note: I’m so excited to see you have a Himalayan Salt Lamp. I have two in my living room. Love them!

2) If you could write from anywhere in the world, where would you like to write from and why?

Picking just one would be hard, but I wouldn’t mind writing on a balcony in Paris, or in a cabin in the mountains for a weekend. I love the movie “The Secret Window” because Johnny Depp is away at a cabin by a lake trying to write. I’d need a TV though. I mean, it’s no wonder he lost it out there with no TV.

3) What is your favorite part of being an author?

Making up stories and creating new worlds and characters, but I have to admit it’s hard to say goodbye when you’re done with the book. Probably why I have a series and wrote a sequel to a book that was supposed to be a standalone!

4) What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I like to explore new areas. I can make a “road trip” out of a twenty minute drive. I’m always taking in new scenery as ideas for settings. I also am a TV addict (American Dad, Girl Meets World, New Girl are some of my favorites, but honestly so many of my shows get canceled). I also love watching Detroit Lions football. Because I’ve moved a lot, I love keeping up with my friends, so I go on social media a lot to see what they’re up to. I read a lot and I can’t deny shopping is a favorite, too.

5) What are you currently working on?

I’m working on two YA novels now as well as an adult novel. One of the YA novels involves a girl who has her self-esteem tested when she begins dating the “it guy” at her high school.
