Written in Kansas – Interviews with Kansas Writers

Books, written in Kansas

Welcome! I’m Cheryl Unruh and this is a page for writers and for readers.

in the interviews below, you can read about the writing process of other writers, their struggles and joys, where they write, how they get ideas, and what they’ve written.

Writers interviewed here may not actually live within the Kansas borders, but they have lived in Kansas for part of their lives. Some of these writers you’ll probably know, some will be new to you. Some have written for decades, some are relative newcomers. 

The writers I know are passionate about their craft, they’re fun to be around, and they are incredibly supportive of each other. That is something to celebrate. 

I am so glad you stopped by! I plan to post at least one interview (maybe two) each week, so please visit often.
