Author Chat- Up Coming Interview!

K.M. Weiland, author of  A Man called Outlaw and the soon to be released Behold the Dawn has graciously agreed to do an interview with me.
I am currently putting together what I hope will be some interesting and probing questions to send to her. So let me know if there is anything you would love to ask Katie about. This is your chance to ask a published author all the stuff you really want to know. Put your questions in the comments and I will include them with mine.  
For Readers
Katie writes stunningly vivid historically based fiction. Once you start reading you won't be able to pry your fingers from the book. You can read the first chapter of her book A Man called Outlaw and get a glimpse into the life of this amazing woman who writes from the sand hills of western Nebraska on her website  and on her blog at
For Writers
Katie's writing will throb in the heart of anyone who understands the joy of crafting three dimensional humanity in all its raw honesty with the written word and humbly accepts what a privilege it is to be able to add our words to this world. 

K.M Weiland says:
"I write because I want to find the answers, because I want to understand and be understood. But it is also a prayer of my heart that somehow my ramblings might find a place in the bigger picture, that they might resonate with even just one reader and form that invisible, ineffable line of connection between my soul and the soul of another. My heart hurts for people who disparage art, including fiction, as a waste of time. They are missing so much. Life is a story; stories are life."
Yep, I agree Katie. Stories are indeed 'life'; the colourful threads, the salt, the spice and the sugar! Enough said! If my 'ramblings' ever have half the impact of Katie's I will be a happy girl! I hope that has you all hanging out to meet Katie here next week when I post the interview. 


  1. Dropped by to see what you were blogging about today and was more than little humbled (and delighted) to read your kind words. Thanks so much for inviting me to be interviewed. I'm looking forward to it!

  2. Thank you! Honestly, it is my absolute pleasure.
