LDS Author Publishes Nationally with Mormon Character

PROVO, UTAH -- LDS author Dean Hughes has managed to accomplish something unusual -- publish a book with a national character that includes a faithful LDS Church member as a main character and make religion part of the book. Hughes says his latest book, "Soldier Boys," a World War II novel from national publisher Atheneum, is the first he's published with a national publisher that features a Mormon character and talks about his religion. Hughes says "I think part of what is changing is the realization that certain books about or by Mormons have done very well financially," Hughes said. "The best example is President Hinckley's Standing for Something."
