Hi I'm Joel

I'm an author of science fiction, fantasy, and adventure novels. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father, first and foremost. I play guitar and have been lead vocalist in a number of Seattle-based bands. Currently, writing is my creative outlet and I have written eleven published novels.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the fullness of the Gospel that Christ taught during his ministry on Earth. This Gospel gives us an understanding how families can be together forever--after this life. As someone who has children who have died, this brings great peace and joy to have an understanding of our Heavenly Father's eternal and merciful plan for us.

How I live my faith

I serve in one of the higher priesthoods, looking after a number of families in the congregation to see to their temporal needs (this involves such things as helping with moves, re-roofing houses, spreading the word when someone is in need of work, and seeing that the requirements of disabled members are attended to) and to their spiritual needs (this includes Sunday lessons, private counseling, and blessings by the laying on of hands).
