I’ve always written scripts for my perfect life.
But no way could I have ever scripted this.
My life is so far from perfect, it’s not even funny.
All because of a stalker.
I’m at a boarding school where I have to lie about who I am.
I can’t see my family.
I’m tutoring a hottie god that tortures me with his smile.
The most popular girl already hates me.
But there’s this boy.
This hot, sweet, sexy boy.
So I’m going to stop trying to script my life and just live it.
Because who knows how long I have left.

Jillian Dodd Talks Keatyn Chronicles Inspiration

I love series. I love getting to know characters and then going through their life with them. When I read a series, I feel like I’m getting back together with my friends.

I wanted to write a long series. I knew I wanted the majority of it set in boarding school. How I got to this series was a long process. At first, my thought was to have Keatyn decide she wanted to get away from the pressures of her old school. That she would choose to go there and that she would choose to lie about who her mom was. She wanted to make true friends. But that was kind of boring and the first time things got tough, she would’ve said screw it and went back home. So then I needed a reason to make her stay. That’s when the stalker storyline came into it. I needed bigger stakes to drive the series. But really, it’s always been about her and a certain boy. It’s really their love story. About figuring out who you are. About how sometimes fate does intervene in your life. Like if you believe in all that stuff. True Love. Fairy Tales. I think we all want to believe in that. Keatyn lives an extravagant lifestyle, but she is the same inside as we all are. She wants people to like her. She wants to be loved. And she wants the dream guy. The guy she’s destined to be with forever.

  1. Great post and giveaway!!

  2. Thanks for participating in the tour!!

  3. This series sounds amazing. It would be so awful having to switch schools and lie about who you are. I don't think I could handle that. I hope Keaton ends up finding her dream guy!

  4. I've seen this series floating around for a while now, but I haven't had the chance to read it. Hopefully I will be getting to it soon. thanks so much!

  5. This sounds like it'd be a fun series.
