My other writing life

Contrary to what some people might think, I don’t write all the time about Mormonism. In fact, the release of my two books on Mormonism next spring will represent the first time in 15 years that there’s been a print publication of anything I’ve written on Mormonism. With the completion of the editing/revising of The Latter-day Cipher (Moody, spring 2009) and The Mormon MIrage: Thirty Years Later (Zondervan, spring 2009), I am turning much of my creative attention to seeking publication for the hundreds of poems I have written and also the formulation of a new novel on the life of Prisca.

From Janis Hutchinson: Another good reason for not returning to the Mormon Church, is the church’s insistence that for a church to be God’s, it has to have a head prophet. Because they do, along with twelve apostles, this is supposed to prove the divine approval of their church. I recently posted a new article on my website, www.janishutchinson.com, that addresses this subject. Click on What’s New?
