My new book

Did not write this story for a Mormon audience. I wrote it for people who enjoy mystery suspense stories. Very few writers have written in this genre using a Mormon cultural backdrop. To you who have read my book, thank you. To those who are reading it, many thanks. You make my day.

MY EXCOMMUNICATION IS CHRISTOPHER PLUMMER'S DOING

I know you won’t believe me, but it happens to be Christopher Plummer’s fault that I am an apostate from the Mormon Church. You are probably thinking, so who cares, how could anything to do with Mormonism is more interesting than watching wheat grow. Of course, you are dead wrong.

New book by exmormon: The Complete Mystery of Matthew Alcott by Michael Oborn

He was fired from his job as church historian. His wife divorced him. At the funeral he realized it was his excommunication that killed his father. Does Cate Lynn also have to die because Matthew was a naughty boy? Can he find her before it is too late?  They took everything from Matthew. All he had left was his rage.

 

From the book: 

         “My Bishop threatened excommunication. What was I supposed to do?” Paul…

I need to get back into your book now that I've got my book out.  I'll be sure to let you know when I've completed it.

Hey Michael.  Thanks for the comment.  The testimony I bore/felt for the May 2008 fast and testimony meeting was as heartfelt and genuine as any I've ever given.  I didn't at that time know I was headed out of the church.  In fact, I didn't really have any conscious thoughts or doubts that Mormonism wasn't true until the week I left, and that was probably only a day or two before I had my awakening.  For a fuller story of how I left and what lead me to that point, you can read my exit story here: http://www.lifeaftermormonism.net/forum/topics/micahs-exit-from-mormonism
