Describe yourself in three words:
Tell us a little about your latest release:
True Colors is about Landry Albright, an eighth grader, who enters a modeling competition with her two best friends, but runs into jealousy when she advances to the next level without them. Enter the gorgeous Devon, who also made the first cut of the modeling contest and becomes the perfect best friend, but can their friendship survive the competition? Throw in a new boy, jealousy issues, and hair stylist insults. How’s a girl to deal?
What is your earliest memory?
Watching soap operas with my mom...from my high chair!
What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?
Getting my master's degree because it showed me I could accomplish a goal I had set for myself. Plus, getting my novel published.
What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?
Moving overseas for three years and being away from family and friends. I had a great time in Portugal, but it was hard to be away sometimes.
What have you learned in life so far?
Recently I learned that you can't wait for life to calm down to accomplish what you want to do. You have to roll with the punches and make the best out of your situation. Also, having a sense of humor about any situation helps a lot.
Everyone’s favourite question: if you could invite five people for dinner, who would it be?
First, I would invite George Michael because I have had a crush on him since I was a kid! Then I'd invite Judy Blume to ask her all about her career (and if she's planning to ever write the Allison book since she followed the Just As Long As We're Together book with a Rachel one. I was obsessed with that book in the sixth grade). I'd want Agnes Nixon there (who created many soap operas like One Life to Live) because I think it's so fascinating to have such a powerful woman who created so much in a time when women were not dominating the industry at all. Then, Liam Neeson because he's my favorite actor and I love his accent. He could read the phone book and I'd listen.  And Cristiano Ronaldo because...well, do I need to explain that one?
Chance for our readers - what else would you like to know about Krysten Lindsay Hager?

  2. I'd gladly have you join us for dinner! Who do you want to sit next to? And I know it won't be me with that guest list ;)

  3. I love the soap operas from the high chair. I still miss Another World and Guiding Light.

  4. Apparently my mom wanted to start me out young on the shows! ;) Thanks for dropping by!
