More About the Author
Years later, her debut novel, Gray Rainbow Journey, won a National Best Books Award and a Florida Authors and Publishers Association President's Best Books Award for YA fiction.
Both Gray Rainbow Journey and the sequel, Journey by the Sackcloth Moon, focus on angst-ridden Native American beauty, Dina Youngblood, who is torn between cultural traditions and mainstream worlds and faiths. Both novels were published by OakTara Publishers.
100+ Native American Women Who Changed the World, a biographical collection that spotlights over 100 outstanding women of Indigenous heritage, is Schaller's first nonfiction title on Native American subjects.
It is winner of a 2014 International Book Award, Women's Issues category.
It is a Gold Medal winner in the 2014 Florida Publishers Association President's Book Awards, Biography category.
In the same competition, 100+ also won Silver medals in both the Young Adult Nonfiction and Reference categories. It is published by the Peppertree Press.
Schaller has taught in a Reservation Christian academy and in public school systems. She blogs on mainly Native American issues, is an artist and poet, and also a historical researcher, columnist and illustrator for Indian Life newspaper.

This is a story that could quickly sink into fantasy or gimmickry. The author allows neither. She quite skillfully blends the supernatural events with real life situations until we do not know where reality ends and magic begins. This is consistent through the book. These potentially sticky themes are handled with a delicacy and grace rarely found. Even at the end, we are not quite sure where this line is drawn, and that is a good thing. A bit of creative ambiguity nourishes the mind and primes us for the next installment... something I look forward to. I just have to make sure to keep this book tucked under a copy of Popular Mechanics to keep my (probably imagined) macho image alive.
A tip of the hat to KB Schaller!
The Christian characters in this book are very real and imperfect, sometimes making choices that lead to more difficulties, like the people I know and love, like the person I am, imperfect, fallen, forgiven and seeking to grow.
Journey by the Sackcloth Moon is an intriguing, sometimes troubling, and ultimately rewarding novel. You will not be disappointed.
In Gray Rainbow Journey, author KB Schaller introduced the mesmerizing plight of Dina Youngblood, a young Seminole/Cherokee woman who struggles at once with dreams and demons, romance and religion, tradition and transition. Dina and her adventures blossom in Schaller's sequel, Journey by the Sackcloth Moon.
Continuing where Gray Rainbow ended, Sackcloth Moon plunges the reader deeper into Dina's dreams and spiritual conflicts as the very human and down-to-earth Dina finds new ways to delight with wit and sass. Schaller deftly hooks the mysterious and mystical to the message of Christianity. She uses the same agility in showing the yanking pressures Christianity puts on Indian tradition and culture.
Message aside, the story is fun to read--it intrigues and holds the reader's attention. The characters are vivid; they show whimsy and depth. Journey by the Sackcloth Moon firmly roots Dina Youngblood as a memorable literary character with, one can only hope, more adventures to share.
