In 2009, my dad started his own publishing label in order to publish his own writings. This included Isaiah: The Times of Fulfillment, a 650-page verse-by-verse commentary of the Book of Isaiah. I helped him by designing the cover and getting the printed books placed in local bookstores. Later, I helped him secure a nation-wide distributor, which allowed the book to be placed in larger chain bookstores. The book has sold out of its first printing. In 2011, I made an e-book version for Kindle. I also manage a Facebook page and a blog to promote the book.

The Spanish translation of Isaiah: The Times of Fulfillment was published in 2012 and is also available as an e-book on Kindle. The Portuguese translation is expected to be released in 2018.

When my parents were a young married couple, my dad was sent to Vietnam for a year-long tour of duty. That year, he spent Christmas on guard duty at the perimeter of his Army compound. In 2004, a brief memoir he wrote about this experience was published on Christmas Eve in the Deseret News. In 2011, I turned his memoir into an e-book called Christmas on the Perimeter and included several period photos. Carma Wadley, former Feature Editor and senior writer at the Deseret News, wrote the foreword for the e-book.

In 2016, we started Latter-day Chiasmus, an effort to document chiasmus in the writings of modern prophets. As an extension of this, we are also studying chiasmus in the writings of Robert Louis Stevenson (along with other secular writers often quoted by LDS general authorities). In July 2017, I presented a paper at the International Robert Louis Stevenson Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland.
