Small towns have big stories. That was a lesson Katie's father taught her years ago. A lesson sheís taken to heart. And right now, Katie is desperate for a big story. Reeling from the recent loss of her father and with her agent breathing down her neck for the next book, the twenty-one-year-old writer picks a spot on the map and finds herself bound for a middle-of-nowhere town called Bishopville, South Carolina.

Taking a chance on the words of a local grocer, Katie stumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the town doctor and his nephew Kyle. The only problem? Kyle isnít interested in telling storiesóespecially not to a big-city girl who canít seem to sit still. In an attempt to win him over as the clock winds down, Katie finds herself immersed in Kyleís world, doing everything but writing.

When inspiration finally strikes, Katie is faced with an unforeseen catastrophe and a truth she can no longer ignore. While she has come to love the dogs, the real story may be about Kyle Walker.

wesley-bio-300x460Wesley Banks was born in 1983 and grew up on the west coast of Florida. He graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelorís and Masterís degree in Civil Engineering. After spending over 7 years building movable bridges from Florida to Washington he decided to focus on his true passion: writing.

Wesley recently moved from Florida to Oregon to get back to the great outdoors that heís love so much. He lives with my wife Lindsey, and his two dogs Linkin and Story. Most of his time these days is spent writing, with as much rock climbing, hiking, or skiing as they can fit in.

Wesley's debut novel, ìHope In Every Raindrop, is set to be released May of 2015.

When you read Hope In Every Raindrop, one thing you'll quickly notice is Kyle Walker is the quiet type. He's far from shy, but he tends to be more reserved, especially about himself. So, I thought it would be fun to ask Kyle some random questions that he couldn't avoid answering.

What do you really want to do on a date?

As long as it's with the right girl, it doesn't much matter what we do. But if I had to pick one thing, I think I might go with horseback riding at sunset. It's hard to beat that.

What are your biggest turn offs?

Probably something simple like too much makeup or over doing it. I'd rather see a girl in jeans, a t-shirt, and a pony tail.

What about turn-ons?

A love for animals, and a good smile.

If you could only eat one thing every day for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

Doc makes some amazing ribs, so probably that.

What's your favorite 90s jam?

To be honest, I never listened to much music growing up. But, if I had to choose, I think I'd go with "Check Yes or No" by George Strait.

Do you have any pet peeves?

I remember in elementary school, one of my teachers assigned us this project where we had to write down the steps to make a peanut butter and jelly (PB&J) sandwich. We then went in front of the class and tried to make a PB&J using someone else's description. We all ended up with some really weird sandwiches. Ever since then I've been a big fan of details.

If you could tell everyone one fact about dogs, and only one fact, what would it be? 

The love of a dog is one of the few things that has the rare ability to expand the human heart.
Well, that does it for the interview with Kyle Walker. Were his answers what you expected?
