Our Mission

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

Healing Sarah (American Homespun #3) by Lorin Grace

The only thing colder than Summer 1816 is Sarah's heart, and Dr. Timison Dawes is determined to melt it.

Sarah Marden is perfectly happy in her role as the family spinster. Almost. But things aren’t the way they should be this summer. Emma’s health is failing, snow is falling in June, and Timmy is back. Twenty years ago, Sarah ran from his kisses because he smelled like barn cats. Now she doesn’t want to refuse him, no matter how much she should.

Dr. Timison Dawes has seen the brutal side of war. He hopes his career is destined for greater things than being a small-town doctor. He didn’t plan on staying home after his sister’s wedding, but then he didn’t expect Sarah to be single either. A temporary job offer gives him the excuse to see if there is a reason to make the North Shore his home.

How can Tim convince Sarah to give up her perpetual mourning and look for a spring when even mother nature refuses to help?

Safe House by Shannon Symonds

True, it was her prison, but it was also her sanctuary.

Where can you turn when your house is not safe? In a small coastal town in Oregon, Amber and Kelly know the deadliest people sleep down the hall. As they attempt to escape the violent, domineering men in their lives, despair fights against faith and hope as an introduction to the Book of Mormon promises them a haven they couldn’t find in their homes. But getting out of these abusive situations is not as easy as it appears. With their lives spiraling out of control, can they have faith that God’s grace will save them?

Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller

Alosa’s mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Riden, still unfairly attractive, is a constant distraction, but at least he’s under her orders this time.

But when the villainous Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared pirate king. Despite the danger, Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first. . . . After all, she’s the Daughter of the Siren Queen.
