The Complete Mystery of Matthew Alcott has become a subject of heated debate and interest among angry Mormons, ex-Mormons, and religious scholars. Oborn's book has been critiqued and reviewed on three continents.
A growing audience of interest is spreading though borderline church members in the 17,000,000 membership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Oborn has piqued the indignation of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles In Salt Lake City for writing a suspense fiction using the cultural environment of Mormonism as the backdrop of his story just as Dan Brown did among the Cardinals of Rome with the Da Vinci Code.
About the Author:
Oborn served an honorable two-year mission for the Mormon Church. He is the son of a manager of The Deseret Industries, a non-profit church welfare organization. His father served in several church Bishoprics throughout the intermountain west.
A fascination with science and cultural anthropology, Oborn graduated from Weber State University and holds the title of Chemical Dependency Professional in the State of Washington.
Actor, director, retired drunk.
Oborn is a Chemical Dependency Professional who works with addicts and their families. He is affiliated with SAFE CALL NOW, a nonprofit organization involved with police and firefighters. "Our first responders have the most difficult job in our society. As a result of the high stress and injury rates they have a suicide rate almost three times that of us, the citizen they protect and serve. Most of that number suffer the disease of addiction. Very few people realize this."
Authors I enjoy:
If you like Lewis H. Lapham, Charles Bukowski, Edward Abbey, or Francine Prose I'm your man.
If you like a writing style that takes three pages to describe a doily look elsewhere. Mine has been called a Karate style. People either hate my writing or they love it. The only people you can really trust are your enemies anyway . . . right?
