"Micah, I'm within days of printing the second edition of 2 and worked one of your earlier quotes into the liner notes. I'd like to get your approval, but somehow your email address isn't coming up on my gmail...   Evan"

"Great to hear from you, Annie. I remember you. If you had to miss a Seminary graduation, I'm glad it was for something heretical. If I hadn't made it to mine, I might still be working at McDonald's. I ran into the man that gave me my…"

"I accidentally turned the water in my hot tub to wine...a watered-down Zin. If I'd pulled off a decent Pinot, I wouldn't have drained it. Anytime the PoMo Wine Aficionados group wants to meet, my mansion is our mansion."

Profile Information

Relationship Status (single, partner, etc):
Single
My Story:
Today I'm a writer. I've spent my career in the creative arts running an advertising agency and political consulting firm. I got into that business to make a positive difference in the world. I'm now writing and lecturing. I have four children and two grandchildren.
Interests and Hobbies:
Music. Art. Travel. Discourse.
Favorite Books:
The Book Of Mormon.

Geez. I'm kidding. Twain called it chloroform in print. I'd update that to lethal injection.
Favorite Movies:
HELP, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Young Frankenstein. I love classic 40's horror movies. I've watched Sideways ten times at least. I like movies, period. Because I've spend so much of my career behind the camera, I have to watch most movies twice to get what's going on. I spend the first viewing fixating on technical details.
Favorite activity after mormonism?
San Francisco Chronicle Wine competition. We travel to SF, taste one hundred different wines and stagger away happy. Do wine country. It's unbelieveable.

Getting free of the tight control of religion is like suddenly being able to shop in every aisle at Albertson's.

Feel free to use my quote in your book.  I haven't seen it yet though if you sent it to me.

Evan - I  met you several years ago in Sugarhouse Park on a Sunday. I  purchased a copy of your book, and sat and chatted for a while with you and your son.  It was an absolutely lovely experience.  That evening I found out that by being with you and Chase I had missed my seminary graduation. Oops. Now whenever mentions seminary I think of that beautiful Sunday and the easy conversation instead of hours wasted in a dull room.  Thanks for the good memory and I hope all is still going well with you.

I posted this on the book review:
Micha, I had not read your review of "2" until today. I ordered the book a few weeks back and just finishing the last few pages. I wanted to read the book not knowing what it was about or become biased based on someone else's findings. Your review is well written and a great explanation of the essence of "2".

I served my mission in Italy (the best part of the Lord's vineyard). I had a few mission companions that compared to those of Bruder Ladd. The APs in my mission were just as overzealous and power hungry as those Bruder Ladd encountered. The book reminded me of my first encounter with the APs. I was no sooner off the plane and whisked through narrow cobblestone streets to a restaurant for our “welcome to Italy” dinner then out for gelato. The next morning, the financial secretary gave me my money for the month, less the cost of dinner, gelato, transportation cost, and tour fee. Are you kidding me!!! It was my money they were giving back to me in the first place.

“2” has prompted me to dust off my own mission journals and read them. Who knows what I’ll find in the pages or memories they will conjure up. Was there a Cadeau in my mission that I did not recognize? What sacrifices did I make to further the work? Maybe I’ll writ a book and call it “3.”

Evan, Loved the book. I would like to know when you are lecturing or what you lecture on? I would love to chat with you sometime about your book. So many questions.
