About the Author
CHRIS HEIMERDINER is the writer/director of the movie “Passage to Zarahemla” and the songwriter/producer of the album “Whispered Visions”. However, he is the best known as the author of the popular Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites Adventure series as well as “Passage to Zarahemla.” Chris has imagined a tale that bridges modern times with the world of The Book of Mormon. He has published a novel sequel to “Passage” entitled “Escape From Zarahemla” which ties together the “Zarahemla” world with the “Tennis Shoes” world in a unique and fascinating way. He has also recently published Muckwhip’s Guide to Capturing the Latter-day Soul—a modern satire featuring a fictional devil named Muckwhip striving to “bring down” one specific member of the LDS faith. Next Chris will publish another (the 12th) book in the Tennis Shoes series entitled “Thorns of Glory.” Chris is the father of five children and five step children. His second oldest son, Ammon, is currently serving a mission in Columbia, South America. The joys of Chris’s life are his children and his eternal companion, Emily.
Excellent reading for younger teens to help get them interested in the gospel.
