Jane Barnes, Fascinated by Mormons


Charlottesville writer Jane Barnes worked on the PBS miniseries THE MORMONS. Jane, who describes herself as a quester, became enamored of the young and bumptious Joseph Smith.  She talks about her near-conversion to the Mormon Church and the writing of her latest book, Falling in Love with Joseph Smith: My Search for the Real Prophet.   Here's a sample of the book.

Marth Woodroof has retired from WMRA and is now spending her time as a full-time writer and published author.
