Hot off the press ...

For those of you who have been asking, my latest book is off the press (The Worth of a Soul: From Muslim to Mormon), and it should be on store shelves soon. This one is a biography of Ayse Hitchins, a very interesting Turkish lady who kindly allowed me to pry into her life and write her story. If you are interested in a copy, please let me know. I'll also be posting upcoming book signings on my website and Facebook page.
