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.

Another aspect of writing that I enjoy very much is magazine article writing, and I’ve done hundreds of articles. Here are some of the most interesting people I’ve interviewed: the designers of the Pioneer robot that creates virtual reality pictures inside the Chernobyl sarcophagus, the designers of “marsupial” and articulated robots that searched for survivors inside Ground Zero, Rosa Parks (the civil rights pioneer), Ruth Bell Graham (wife of Billy Graham), Heather Wilson (first female graduate of the Air Force Academy and presently a US Senator), and hundreds of military officers for various other articles. I’m soon to be interviewing Lt. Gen. Ann Dunwoody, the first woman in US history to be nominated to become a Four-Star General.

I love writing!
