Utah author Dean Hughes’ first published book was for children. Titled "Under the Same Stars," it was about the early members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Jackson County, Mo., near where Hughes and his family were living at the time in 1979.
This year, his 100th book, “Through Cloud and Sunshine” (Deseret Book, $25.99), the second volume in the Come to Zion series, rolled off the presses.
“It’s been a way to make a living that I’ve loved,” Hughes said of writing.
The 70-year-old author doesn’t have plans to stop writing.
