To find out, read HOTLINE GIRL by K. Dawn Byrn.

An Interview by Molly Noble Bull

Hotline Girl by K. Dawn Byrn is an adorable novel for young adults with a cute plot, and it is perfect for summer reading. Many if not most parents will give Hotline Girl five stars merely because it is a Christian book. When you add readability to the mix, you’ve got a winner.
Below is list of questions the author, K. Dawn Byrn, answered for this interview.
Read on.

.   K. Dawn, apparently you believe that it is possible to fall in love online. You could be right. Personally, I met my one and only husband in college. But I know of a pastor who fell in love with a woman he met online. The couple got married, and the last I heard, they lived happily ever after.
So okay K. Dawn, why did you write this book? 

.  I thought it would be fun to explore how a couple could fall in love on-line. When my heroine's high school begins a counseling hotline, she's chosen to work it anonymously. She finds herself giving advice to a guy she's had a crush on forever. Once she knows all the hero's secrets, will love blossom or fail? When he divulges the problems he's having with his girlfriend, she's tempted to give him advice that will break them up. Will she do the right thing?

.   Call me old fashion or just old, but I’m not sure about this online romance idea. I know it worked for the pastor I mentioned, but I’m going to need to think about it a little longer before I give it my seal of approval for my grandchildren. But as I said, the concept makes for a “cool” story idea. The story sounds down right cute. That brings me to my next question.
Why do you write?

.   I write because I can't stop. It's more than a hobby; it's a passion. It's the most fun I've ever had in my life! I like to say that I write for the simple joy of placing words on the page, and it's true!

.   Bravo. Me, too. So, are you a plotter or do you just write with no clear destination in mind?

.   I’m a big time plotter because I write all of my books in 30-day marathons.

.   I don’t mean to interrupt, but I need to invite you back here to find out how you are able to write a book in 30 days. Wow! Okay, so please continue.

.   I have to start with a thorough plot. That doesn't mean that sometimes the story doesn't take a life of its own, surprising me when it takes me down a road I hadn't planned to travel.

.   Interesting. So what are you working on right now?

.   I'm working on a thriller about a serial killer. It's a difficult story because there are several twists, and turns, and I have to be careful how I write it for everything to fall into place correctly.

A thriller, now that book really sounds interesting. You need to come back when that one is finished and tell us all about it. But before you go, tell us more about your current release.

K. Dawn:
.   Okay. Here’s the cover blurb.
When the school counselor asks Abby to work a counseling chat line, she begs her to choose someone else. When Race, Abby's three-year crush, begins using the chat line to talk about his girlfriend problems, can Abby be impartial when she really wants to tell him to dump her?
Race notices Abby after she has a complete makeover. He begins to spend more time with her and feels like a cheater because he likes the hotline girl too. How can he like two girls at once? Abby is thrilled when Race begins spending time with her, but she's crushed when he tells the hotline girl that he likes her and wants to take her out. Is he a player? Will he even want to be with her when he finds out that she is the hotline girl and knows all his deepest secrets?

.   So y’all, you need to go out and buy this book for your kindle. And K.Dawn, thanks for stopping by.
