More About the Author


Neylan McBaine is a life-long member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon). She was born and raised in New York City and then attended Yale University. She writes primarily about women in Mormonism.

Neylan is the author of Women at Church: Magnifying LDS Women's Local Impact (2014). She is also the author of a collection of personal essays, How To Be A Twenty-First Century Pioneer Woman (2008), and the editor of Sisters Abroad: Interviews from the Mormon Women Project (Patheos Press, 2013), with an introduction by former Relief Society general presidency member Silvia Allred.

Neylan has been published in Newsweek, Meridian Magazine, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Segullah, Patheos.com, BustedHalo.com, the Washington Post's On Faith religion blog, among others. Neylan's work on women and Mormonism includes a FairMormon talk from 2012 that was widely distributed, and a roundtable podcast with leaders of key women's organizations within Mormonism.

In January 2010, Neylan launched the Mormon Women Project, a digital library of interviews with LDS women from around the world, in an effort to emphasize the many ways that modern faithful women choose the right. Because of the strong examples of Mormon women she grew up with, including her own mother who was a professional opera singer, and because of her personal connection with many women who struggle to find their place within LDS culture, Neylan felt it was important to challenge the cultural stereotype with portraits of all kinds of righteous women. The site, which posts one interview a week with the help of dozens of volunteers, includes over 200 interviews with LDS women from 22 countries.

My wife and I purchased Neylan's book and have both been reading it this week. Last night we enjoyed reading our favorite excerpts to each other. This collection of personal essays brings back fond memories of being a Latter-day Saint at Yale in the late 1990's. Neylan provides good insights into gospel living in the twenty-first century, and her commitment to the restored church is evident in every chapter. The book is well organized, written, and edited. We are looking forward to more to come from Neylan McBaine.

Format: Paperback
This is a lovely book of personal essays from the point-of-view of a smart, searching Mormon writer. I found myself many times identifying with her grapplings and the self-searching involved with leaving home, finding love, starting a first job, having a baby. Neylan McBaine is a wonderful voice of support and insight for young, strong, Mormon women.
