WOW Wednesday – K.D. Emerson

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to my good friend and fellow author, K.D. Emerson.

I first met K.D. Emerson while we were both teaching at Salt Lake Christian Academy many years ago. I have to be honest, she intrigued me. She has many of the same interests as I. The one thing that stood out in my mind about her was her zest for life because it is so contagious.


Since that time I have discovered that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to K.D. Emerson. Today, just for fun I would like to expose some of the weird and wacky things I discovered about her. I am posting this pop quiz to see if any of you can guess the three things on this list that K.D. Emerson has NOT done in her life. I’m sure you will agree the things left on the list equal a pretty interesting life.


Here is a list of possible facts about K.D. Emerson. What three things are false?

  1. Ridden a wild horse
  2. Ridden an unicycle
  3. Worked at a bank
  4. Worked at a carnival
  5. Got expelled from school a week before high school graduation
  6. Never got expelled from school
  7. Sold her first story at age eight
  8. Was in a moving traffic accident with a truck that had no driver
  9. Won a dance contest in high school
  10. Lived at the top of a mountain with a pack of wolves
  11. Her first published work was three lines long
  12. Received a 5 star review from her ex-husband after they were divorced
  13. Loves cotton candy
  14. Acted in and directed live theatre
  15. Tore the finger board off a grand piano while performing on stage



I asked K.D. Emerson if she could go back in time to when she was seven years old, what wisdom or advice would she pass on to herself?

Don’t you dare put that pen down! No matter what anyone says, no matter how impractical it might seem, don’t put the pen down because when you get older there will be people that love your style and your writing will make a difference in their lives.


My favorite character from Digitus 233 is _________. How did you come up with that character?


All my characters are created from the dark corners of my mind with a little snippet of their personality inspired by a real person. So no matter whom your favorite character is in one of my books you will know there is someone real hidden in there somewhere. It’s up to the reader to figure out what that snippet is.


One thing I have been dying to ask, why did you end Digitus 233 with such a horrifying cliff hanger? It made me want to scream! I sat and thought about possibilities for a long time after finishing the novel.

Well, you just hit the answer to your own question right on the head. I wanted my readers to scream out and then I wanted them to use their own imagination to come up with their own possible ending. In book two I will share my conclusion with them and then we can compare how close we came in to having the same resolution.


What is a short synopsis for Digitus 233?

A group of teens are caught in a web of deceit.  Will they break free of the world’s controlling power or are they doomed to die trying?


K.D. Emerson has this to say to her readers.

Thanks to all the readers of my work and for your precious input. I don’t think you realize how much it means to me. Each one of you has given me a gift with your kind words. May God bless you in every step you take and may your life be filled with that glorious peace that passes all understanding.



~What Readers are saying ~


  • This book has a fascinating storyline and great characters with hidden talents. When I got to the end, I kept trying to flip to the next page before I realized it was a cliffhanger. No! I MUST know what happens next! ~ Laurie Boris

  • This knocked The Hunger Games right out of the running for me (and that’s one of my favorites!) ~ Dominique
  • This sort of tale-spinning takes TALENT! All I’ve gotta say is this: KD – you’d better get the sequel written pretty darn quickly…!! ~ Liberty

What brings you the deepest sense of happiness?

Knowing that I have made a difference in someone’s life. I have an ability to feel deep joy when I watch others succeed.


You are the owner of Master Koda Select Publishing, LLC. Is it the first business you have ever owned?

*Laughter* Nooo. I was just a kid of six or seven when I first ventured into the land of entrepreneurial adventures. I was always hunting around for something to sell. One summer it was candy out of the back of a little red wagon (my venture into door to door sales), one summer it was a carnival in my back yard, one summer I gathered all the neighborhood kids and made them memorize lines and dress in ridiculous costumes and we charged all the adults to suffer through our off-off-off-Broadway plays. The one on-going business I had was selling my stories on the playground at school, so I guess I was an indie publisher way back before it was popular.


What is your favorite genre to read on a rainy day?

No matter the weather or the genre, three important aspects must be present. 1. It can be a romance, thriller, fantasy or sci-fi, but the author has to make me believe it’s possible. 2. The plot must be intriguing and tightly written. And 3. The characters have to be three-dimensional. No card-board cut-outs for this girl.


What is the meaning of life?

To leave the earth a better place for having been here
