I drove six and a half hours to Denver by myself this weekend for a fabulously fun writers retreat with some of my writers' group members. That is a lot of podcasts to listen to. After getting my fix of the Stuff You Missed In History podcast, I started Do I Dare Eat A Peach, hosted by Robison Wells and Dan Wells. GREAT entertainment, even though they made me feel uneducated and shallow (So many books I haven't read, Beatles songs I've never heard of, and foods I've never tried).
Somewhere in the middle of Wyoming while on this drive, I thought, you what Top Ten list there should be? There should be a Top Ten list of Best LDS Fiction. I don't mean by LDS authors. That's what the Whitneys are for. No, this is going to be a list of the Top Ten LDS Fiction books. So, on the form at the top of the blog, nominate your favorites. They should be, number one, FICTION; and they should have LDS primary characters or a plot that revolves around LDS issues. (Which means, don't nominate The Book of Mormon or Miracle of Forgiveness. I'll take them off.)
The form will be up for however long it takes to get a reasonable list going. Once we have a good list, we'll vote for the Top Ten. Are you in? (Please be in. This could be really fun!) In fact, I'm going to nominate one of my favorites now.

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
