Krista McGee: Starring and Directing

(November 9, 2012)

Krista McGee is back on bookshelves with her sophomore novel, Starring Me (Thomas Nelson). “I wrote Starring Me at the same time I was directing ‘Beauty and the Beast’ at my school,” she shares. “Some of Kara’s thoughts about acting come straight from my students.” In the novel, Kara McKormick (who appeared in Krista’s earlier book, First Date), auditions to be the co-host of a teen variety show.

Krista also added these fun facts: “The doctor in the book, Dr. Busti, is named after a good friend who just finished medical school. My daughter Ellie auditioned for a church play using ‘Kara’s Monologue’—and she got a lead role!”
