As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"

Ammon by H.B.Moore

5063116_ammon_productA huge round of applause to Heather Moore (H.B.Moore) for winning Best of State.

If you enjoyed any of her others, The Out of Jerusalem Series, Alma, Abinadi and Alma the Younger then you may hold your breath for Ammon (pre-order at Deseret Book). Available June 2011.

Heather recently took time out of her busy schedule to chat. Wanna listen in?

...Me: History is intimidating to me. What made you decide to write these amazing historical fiction pieces?

Heather: I decided to write historical fiction on the Book of Mormon because I felt it was a niche that could be filled in the LDS market, and I love to think about the "behind the scenes" of the Book of Mormon.

Me: I love the “behind the scenes” that you have captured. What can we expect from you in the near future?

Heather: My next 2 books are:

Not as the World Giveth: Christ's Gifts to Women, which is a non-fiction book that I co-authored with Angela Eschler. It will be released Spring 2012.

Daughters of Jared, a Book of Mormon novel that takes place during the era of King Jared II. It will be released Summer 2012.

Me: Both sound intriguing. But for those fascinated with your Book of Mormon series, will there be a Captain Moroni?

Heather: I haven't decided which Book of Mormon prophet to write on next. I'm currently drafting a women's fiction series about a group of women who are in a book club in Newport Beach.

Me: Whatever you do, I’m sure it’ll be awesome. Keep us posted and thank you for taking the time to answer these impromptu questions.
