Welcome to my website! Whether you want to learn more about me, gather book recommendations, or are looking for editing services, I’m glad you’re here!

I NOT David and I NOT Buddy are an official Whitney Awards nominees! Thank you for your reader recommendations! I’ve accepted the nominations and sent the judges their copies.

What is a Whitney Award?

The Whitney Awards have given awards to outstanding Latter-day Saint works of literature since 2007. Though not sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the awards are based on the quote by Elder Orson F. Whitney, who said:

“We will yet have Miltons and Shakespeares of our own. Above all things, we must be original. Our mission is diverse from all others; our literature must also be.”

Receiving a Whitney Award has become an honor for Latter-day Saint authors.

The best part? You can suggest as many books as you’d like, so there’s no reason to hold back! Recommend your favorite Latter-day-Saint authored books published between October 31, 2020, and October 31, 2021. I know I will!

My Books: News!

I’ve also started work on my next novel, which is currently titled Clear Adventure. Jen, her husband Brice, and their three children hike through the West Clear Creek Wilderness when disaster strikes. Full of action, there is still plenty of raw emotion and love.

How does the title strike you? Love it, hate it, either way, I want to know, so send me an email at kmonson.author@gmail.com.
