Writer Wednesday with Christen Krumm: Books Authors Read
What was your favorite book as a child?
Oh goodness! I was the poster child book worm as a kid. The library was my favorite place to hang out—and since I was homeschooled, we hung out at the library a lot. When I was younger, I absolutely loved Baby Island. I just recently found a copy at Goodwill (I’m pretty sure there was squealing involved). My daughter and I have already read through it twice. In my teen years, I devoured anything by Dee Henderson. In fact, there were multiple times my mom had to ground me from reading until I got my math homework done (math, yuck!)
What book did you read that first made you want to be an author?
I don’t actually think it was one book, and more so just an immense love for story. I honestly can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a writer. Doctor and writer. Storm chaser and writer. Mom and writer — the “main” job changed (sometimes daily), but the one consistant — I always wanted to write!
What was the last book you read, just for fun?
I just finished Furious Hours for book club last month (well, dude to deadlines, I listened mostly to this one), and I’m currenty in the middle of American Royals by Katherine McGee.
What books are currently on your nightstand?
I have a Sweedish crime novel, The Preacher; A Gentleman in Moscow (on loan from my brother-in-law); An ARC of Sara Ella’s upcoming Coral; and Amy Mayto’s The Aftermath
What upcoming release are you most looking forward to?
Christen Krumm lives with her real-life superhero husband and three barefoot wildings in small-town Arkansas. Coffee is the lifeblood, books are her drugs, and creating stories is her favorite.

More about It Happened at Christmas
In this enchanting YA spin on While You Were Sleeping, Christen Krumm delivers laughter and Christmas sparkle through a swoon-worthy story of first love and belonging.
Life at Iverson Preparatory Boarding School isn’t easy when you’re basically the maid. Murphy Cain spends her days cleaning up after her upper-class peers in exchange for tuition while dodging their cutting remarks. All of that changes when she rescues her crush, the popular and hunky Tripp Harrington, after a near-fatal accident and is mistaken as his girlfriend.
Murphy finds herself struggling with the choice to reveal the truth or play along. As Tripp’s girl, his wealthy family will offer Murphy something she’s been craving her whole life—a chance to be one of the “in” crowd. A chance to belong. Without it, she’ll be right back where she started.
It only gets worse as Tripp’s brother Hank enters the picture. He’s handsome, down to earth, and seems to understand Murphy better than anyone else. The only problem? She’s supposed to be dating his brother.
As Christmas break draws to a close, Murphy must decide if telling the truth is worth losing it all or if the risk will bring a greater reward in the end.
