Gerald Lund has written 57 books, including the famed Work and the Glory series, and is arguably the most widely read author of Latter-day Saint literature with 3.5 million copies sold over the course of 51 years. In this episode, he shares little-known details of how “The Work and the Glory'' series came to life and grew from one volume into an exhaustive nine-volume series. He also answers his most often asked question: “Where do you get your ideas?” Lund, an equally prolific writer of fiction and non-fiction, never took a writing course but has loved books since his childhood when he and his siblings carried armfuls of books home from the library to read as a family.
