        The origins of my interest in fiction are rooted in my early childhood. As a child, I loved to sleep over at my friend?s house on Friday nights and watch the late night science fiction movies. I have fond memories of ducking in and out of my sleeping bag on the living room floor while being both captivated and frightened. In college, I discovered the C.S. Lewis and soon was experiencing other worlds in his Space Trilogy and Chronicles of Narnia. These were my favorite multi-book stories until a friend suggested I try reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. This led to The Lord of the Rings trilogy which I read several times prior to the movies. Hobbits, elves, orcs, trolls were like the races and cultures of man in that they were related but different. Interwoven throughout these stories were the struggle of good and evil as well as the discovery of purpose and realizing one?s potential. My education and career over the past forty years have been in the Environmental Sciences which are hardly conducive to fiction writing. I graduated with two MS degrees from the University of Wisconsin and worked as a consultant and then as an environmental specialist for a mid-western utility company. After raising two children, I found myself a grandparent with a successful wife who spent several days a week traveling as a director for a dental corporation. My wife claims that being a grandpa has awakened the right side of my brain and has helped me discover my second childhood. I find there is some truth to this as I can act goofy, spoil my grandchildren and then give them back to their parents. While driving alone on a work trip, a thought occurred to me that I should write a book about what the Bible says about various subjects. I have read the Bible daily for over thirty years, spoken in many churches as a member of the Gideons, taught Sunday School and served as a deacon, so I felt I could help others to understand what I consider the most important book ever written. Two years later my first book, Truth Seeker: Bible Topics, was written. For me writing is a passion. In the past thirteen years, I have written seven books and over twenty articles for the New York Times about Christianity and Christian Pulse web sites. This Dawn Herald Triology is a Lord of the Rings style tale that weaves Christian themes into a multi-book series on the inter-play between reality and fantasy worlds. The spiritual realm, like fantasy, is not real to some but intrigues many people because there is a deep innate sense in mankind that there is a greater reality. My Truth Seeker Series are four non-fictional books based on the Bible. Truth Seeker: Bible Topics summarizes what the Bible says about a wide range of topics with lots of Bible references. Truth Seeker: Mormon Scriptures & The Bible summarizes the books upon which Mormonism is based and compares them to the Bible. Truth Seeker: New Testament Apocrypha summarizes selected books from the early centuries of Christianity and seeks objective reasons why these books were not included in the Bible. While Truth Seeker: Objections To Christianity represents a dialogue with my father who was a critic of Christianity. He summarized his beliefs and problems with the Bible and left me with a written legacy. Thus, this book completes decades of debates that we had prior to his death. Fictional writing is based on developing interesting characters and then visualizing how they progress in their roles. In other words, the characters carry the plot and writing is like watching scenes in a play unfold. My non-fictional writing revolves around the Bible which I have studied daily for over thirty years. I love to learn and share the awesome truths of the Bible. I am amazed and humbled by what I have written as I see myself as a scribe recording what God has given for our edification.

        Bible Topics offers a concise summary of what the Bible says about over thirty practical living and theological topics and includes many Bible quotes to provide additional information on each topic. There are questions at the end of each chapter that can help to facilitate Sunday school class or small group discussions. This helpful guide covers a wide variety of topics, including angels, abortion, eating and drinking, gambling, heaven, money, spiritual gifts, swearing, and worry. Much of the controversy that surrounds the interpretations of what the Bible says stem from a lack of systematic study, the use of verses out of context, or attempts to extrapolate truth beyond what is clearly stated. In order to avoid these pitfalls and determine a fair interpretation, Warren Mueller attempts to explain some of the truths of the Bible that are relevant to our human nature, thoughts, and purposes today.

    • Objections to Christianity

        In recent years, there have been a number of popular books that have questioned who Jesus was. Was he a Zealot, Messiah, misunderstood prophet or someone who was mythologized by the Roman Church to gain power and influence? This book explores these and many other objections to traditional Christian views as a dialogue between a father and son who hold polar opposite beliefs about Jesus, his message and his mission.

    • Mormon Scriptures & The Bible

        As American culture drifts towards situation ethics and values based on surveys, Mormons are like other Christians in that they tend to be conservative and look to their Church and Scriptures for guidance. Each chapter of Truth Seeker: Mormon Scriptures & The Bible is a summary of each of the books that make up The Book Of Mormon, The Pearl of Great Price and Doctrines & Covenants. This is followed by a discussion of internal inconsistencies, differences from the Bible and historical problems. In order to provide a balanced discussion, the views of a devout Mormon, Dr. Jordan Jensen, are included. Brigham Young University and Latter-day Saint (LDS) web sites were used to answer questions I still had after completing my review and to fill in gaps in my understanding of some doctrines and beliefs. The result of these efforts is a book that provides insights into Mormonism and how it compares and deviates from other Christian churches. The essence of the deviations are founded in the idea that Mormonism extends, clarifies and sometimes replaces Biblical teachings based on revelations given to Joseph Smith and subsequent LDS prophets.
