K.D. Miller Graces the Digital Pages of Chatelaine

What better way to start a Friday morning than with more exciting news about our own K.D. Miller?

She was interviewed, along with her fellow 2014 Rogers Writers' Trust Award shortlisted authors, by glamourous Chatelaine magazine. When asked how her book All Saints developed into a series of linked short stories, K.D. replied:

It started as two stories, “Still Dark” and “Ecce Cor Meum,” that were strongly linked. Then Dan Wells, publisher of Biblioasis, asked for “more Anglican stories.” So I started to think about the people who might rub shoulders, however lightly, with a small, struggling urban church.  The characters started to show up after that — Simon the rector, Kelly the long-time parishioner, Alice the mass murderess who used to teach Sunday School…

After answering more questions about favourite books and hidden talents, K.D. ends the interview by naming "Gimme a Pigfoot (And a Bottle of Beer)" as her favorite song. One happy listen later, we couldn't resist sharing. This one's for you, Ms. Miller.
