A guild for authors of fiction and non-fiction
Our purpose as an organization is three-fold: to encourage and support fellow writers, strengthen literacy in our communities, and raise the quality of LDS literature. For these reasons, we strive to reach out to aspiring authors and help them improve their craft to the point of publication. We believe that the more people become comfortable with a pen and a book, the more civilized our society will grow.

Storymakers Book Spotlight
Finding Liberty (Almost a Billionaire Book 4) by Bridget E. Baker
Billionaire heiress Brekka Thornton is headed for Olympic fame and glory until a car accident destroys all her plans. She redirects her efforts toward conquering the business world with her brother Trig, closing the door on her old life without a backward glance.
An IED blast sends Rob Graham back to the US with a purple heart and a broken back. After a miraculous recovery, he returns home to find that his dad needs him to run the family business. Rob never hesitates, even though he hates car sales more than pop up ads.
When Brekka’s brother proposes to Rob's best friend, their paths are destined to cross at the upcoming wedding. Even so, Rob isn't prepared for Brekka to roll into his life and turn it inside out. Brekka takes Rob to task for slighting her brother, but he’s distracted by her flashing eyes and captivating dimple. He can’t bear the thought of watching her leave his office, so Rob asks her to dinner.
Brekka hasn’t been on a date since the car accident, and Rob’s quick wit and winning smile unnerve her. She resolves to head home and duck back into hiding where the world is safe. Rob ought to let her go. He isn't nearly good enough for the highly educated Brekka, but he didn’t become a Marine by quitting when things look bleak.
Can love mend these two broken spirits, or will the weight of the past shatter them beyond repair?

Hope and Healing by Wendy Jessen
One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before the age of eighteen. Equally alarming, sexual abuse most often happens at the hands of someone we know—not a stranger.
But what can we as survivors do to find hope and healing? How can support people (friends, family, teachers, and church leaders) help their loved ones on the path to wholeness?
While sexual abuse is not the fault of the victim, they seem to suffer the most negative consequences. In Hope and Healing: A Survivor’s Faith-Based Perspective on Recovering from Sexual Abuse, survivor Wendy Jessen shares her story and healing insights alongside a gospel perspective to help other survivors navigate their healing journey while maintaining faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement. Survivors will not only learn to thrive, but also that they are not alone.
