Friday Five with Author Christen E. Krumm
Today, we have the immense privilege of hosting the talented Christen Krumm! She was kind enough to answer a few fun questions to help us get to know her better:
What's the most random thing in your bag?
A bottle of BioFreeze. My brother ran a 1/2 marathon, and I was the cheerleader (and had BioFreeze for his knees after the race)
I’m reading the second Inspector Gamache novel, A Fatal Grace; Hidden Figures; Katie Ganshert's Life After; Kristy Cambron’s The Illusionist’s Apprentice; and Sara Ella’s newest, Unraveled.
What do you order at Starbucks?
Grande Vanilla Soy Latte or a Coconut Mocha—depending on what I feel like
What's your favorite recent discovery?
Coconut oil + a teeny tiny bit of chocolate in my coffee (and cream). It’s like a coconut mocha (only you’re getting the health benefits from the coconut oil!)
What are you currently working on?
I’m currently working on the first draft of book two in my duology and playing around with an idea for a serial series.
What can we pray for?
I’m querying agents—it’s kinda daunting and overwhelming.
We've been there and are so proud of you! May the odds be ever in your favor :)
Christen Krumm has organized the jungle of blog tours for the past five years as a publicity coordinator and now works as a virtual assistant helping authors maintain their sanity and sobriety. When she's not making up new stories or digging her way out of her massive TBR pile, she finds more adventures running after her three kids, sniffing out crimes with her detective husband and trying to maintain culture in small-town Arkansas.
