You’re in for some interesting times…..

I pull an amorphous issue forward until it resolves into its face. Then I put my face right up against it and talk to it. I take all comers: the monolith of Mormonism, the challenge of writing truthful fiction, the bittersweet contradictions of faith in a mysterious and terrifying God of love. I look them all straight in the eye.  –Latayne C. Scott
